Best All-Mountain Board For Me

every-time i ask this i get different awnsers and then i look up feedback on the board and some places say they're crap and some say good.

I Mainly ride groomers and go to an indoor snow slope at milton keynes twice a week(artificial snow), however i do like to do some small jumps and would like to attempt some other things in the future possibly, such as rails or boxes(i've never got the chance to ride powder) so im looking for a quiver of one board.
Also i would like it to be a board that is quite fast as my brother skis and i dont want him to leave me behind too much

Stats
Skill-Intermediate
Height-5 ft.6
Weight-9 1/2 stone
Boot Size-10-10 1/2

also if possible please say why i should get the board and if there are any bindings, boots that would go well with it.

so far ive seen considered the:
lib-tech Skate banana
lib-tech t rice
burton custom

I'm 5'5 and have the Ride Agenda.Its a great board for all around although geared more towards park riding. I also looked at the lib-tech Skate banana bu i decided to go with the agenda.Both are nice boards.And as far as the custom...personally I wouldn't get it unless you only ride park and are decent in the park.

the banana is way more park then the custom is, way more flex, the banana is a park board, the custom is a all-mountain board

as far as your riding habits, explain a little more detail about what you currently ride, and what you see yourself riding, jumps, boxes, rails, what size etc

well i go away to a mountain for about 2-4 weeks a year and am mainly snowboarding 2 times a week at an indoor snow slope in milton keynes (artificial snow), i want to learn to do some butters and maybe a few small things in the park. I pretty much need a all mountain board that can handle some park but is also quite fast as i need to be able to keep up with my brother who skis abit. also please suggest bindings and boots that would go well with the board if you know some

cheers

from what you are saying, I would go with the burton custom over the banana, and look at sierrasnowboard.com and find some medium bindings and boots

everyone will tell you buy boots that you have tried on
