ex1stence my riding style is identical to yours and so far the Rome Anthem is friggin spectacular for that kind of riding.
its stiff as hell for the tree runs and groomers and provides pop when need be. scary on rails though. give er a shot

Unfourtunately I got outbid by some douchebag... I was really looking forward to that. Anyway I picked up a new 08 K2 Zeppelin for $300 so I guess I cant complain. I will let you all know how she rides when I get a chance to take it out for a rip!

Again, Thanks for the help!

Jenzo maybe yer overthinking it a bit... the evo-r is a great choice but so are the others.
my sl-r is a seriously awesome board, a bit too stiff for real freestyle so if you want park get the evo. I have a separate board for park

Burton custom is a good choice

I have a Burton Custom (old model...called something else). I also have Lib Tech's T. Rice, and Never Summer's Summit.

I'm a big guy and the Custom does me well as an all-around board. I still love it. In really good powder, I prefer the Never Summer. In icy crap, I prefer the T. Rice. But, when building a quiver, the Burton is a great place to start.

I agree with the others on the stiffness though...it's not a park board. It handles anything backcountry or on piste well enough though.

KC KONG i dont think your going to go wrong with any of thoughs boards. You can hit a few rails and jumps and be perfectly fine. Then on the other hand you can hit groomers all day and be fine.

The board claims to have lots of 'POP' but i dont understand how the reverse camber duces any pop... damn this stuff it turning my brain into a slushy.
