|southy||Back to your original choices.... has anyone ridden the new Jones Mountain Twin? I rode a 2011 model and liked it a lot, but thought it was a little loose for my taste. This year's version is supposed to have more camber and less rocker, so I'm thinking it would be pretty perfect. Haven't seen a single review yet though.|

I would think that you would love the Never Summer Cobra. I Found the Premier to be a little too much of a tank. It is a surprisingly quick turning tank but still a tank.
With Never Summer I like to think of the SL as the true go anywhere board and the Cobra is the go anywhere board for people that don't spend a lot of time in the park.

Thanks for all your help so far!

I'd go either of these
Ride - Berzerker
Never Summer - SL/Legacy
Never Summer - Heritage/Cobra
Gnu Billy - Goat
Lib Tech - TRS

|stupidmop||I ride a pick your line, and my style is similar to yours. It's a sturdy board, holds an edge well, and is shaped perfectly to float through POW. I really like it and and am so happy with it. I don't have experience with the other boards you mentioned so I can't compare them.|

I am not a big fan of thegoodrides reviews, I usually tend to love the boards they hate.
Either way, I recommend the Arbor Coda, really fun board and can do everything you need.

|bordsmnj||Salomon Burner would fit the bill. get a size bigger than you think you need and enjoy the extra speed and control. any "tapperd directional" is were its at if your not going to the park. .02-Jas|

From what you wrote, I'm a pretty similar skill level and style - I'm maybe slightly more freestyle oriented but near enough.
I got a Ride Machete 2012 in the middle of last year and I freakin' love it. It handles the hard-pack and sometimes icy stuff at home (New Zealand) well, and I had great fun riding it at Whistler in early Jan on the groomers, powder, and tree runs.
It's not the most buttery board in the world but it sounds like that's not really your thing anyways.
In the 2013 line they introduced a GT version as well, seems like it's maybe a little stiffer, so that could be worth a look too.
