Question Need a new Freeride/Powder board!?!?!?!?

Hey guys,
im new to this forum (this is my first post).
i just got back from heavenly this past week, and i f***ed my board up pretty bad . sooo its time for a new one. ive had my LTD board for the past 3-4 yrs.

im looking to spend $400-500 on a board, what would be the best board for some backcountry boarding.

ive been looking at the Burton malolo , GNU Kyle clancy, and Rome Anthem.

anyone have any advice as what board to get?

Thanks alot in advanced.

-Pieter
