Default Burton t6 2006 compared to Landlord

Hi All
I am in the market for a new snowboard. I generaly ride in the north east (hunter mtn) i have been riding for 15 + years, i am 5.7 165. i like to carve at high speed and ride the sides of the trails when i need a rest. I have a burton T6 156 2006-2007. This by far is the best board i have owned. The only issue i have with this board is when i am on the flat or at low speed i feel like the board is not as responsive as i wish it would be. When i ride in the trees (generally low speed) i struggle to make turns and have trouble adjusting to the ruts and mixed powder conditions. Since my t6 is now 8 years old, how would new board technology such as the burton landlord non split 159 compair?

I have a 2008 T6... it is a great stiff camber board (and every smooth in the choppy stuff).

Since I venture (suffer) into moguls.... I know where you're coming from.

My 2013 Sherlock (Flying V) is a lot more responsive in the moguls.

Yea the t6 is a bit rough in the mogules, but rips on the groomers. Do you feel the sherlock reduces performance compared to the 6?

My T6 does a great job of smoothing out the choppy stuff. The Sherlock, even though it supposed to have some sort of vibration dampening technology isn't as smooth, and the edge hold on the groomers is no where near as good on the groomers.

speed... well, I'm slightly OCD about waxing, so my shorter Flying-V is not an issue.
