what type of riding do you do? how much do you weigh? 2 companys to consider would be NeverSummer or LibTech. nearly every company now has some sort of version of reverse camber though so there are plently of options.

1: Decide on what you wanna ride: park, all mountain, big mountain/powder
2: decide on level of desired performance: beginner(low response), intermediate(mid response), advanced(high response)
3: set a budget depending on how advanced of a board and the type of riding
4: find all the boards from all the companies that fit your criteria and pick the one with the coolest topsheet.

It's eerie how much sense this makes.

im 5' 10'', 150 pounds
i ride all mountain. i used to ride a burton custom x which was pretty stiff and i would like to experiment with something a little softer so i can butter and press. im a strong rider. i do expert terrain and big park features and it just depends on the snow conditions to what i ride. ive only got enough money for one board so it needs to be versatile. hopefully under $600 dollars.

if you want something buttery/fun but still can handle the mtn the NeverSummer evo-r is a very good board. also the NS SL-r is a slightly stiffer version of the evo-r. from lib tech the TRS is a awesome board and is on the stiffer side but with the banana its fairly easy to press still.
