      More directional Twin options: Nidecker Escape, Rome Warden, Rome Crewzer, Arbor Shiloh, Mercury

      More Directional, but still fully capable switch: K2 Instrument, Lib Tech Cold Brew, Rome Ravine

      I might go with something a little less demanding than the Kazu given that you'll be with the kids some. Certainly doable, but if the times you'll be able to send it and bomb shit are less frequent than when you won't, you're just missing the benefit of it. Those more directional optoins are easy to live with, have solid edge hold and snap, float great in deep snow, and will never hold you back in any terrain.

      From your list I like the Freaker. I wouldn't really call the Berzerker "nimble", maybe the Algorythm, Deep Thinker updated to Carbon Hylights since I last rode it, but I was never that psyched on the shape and had better experiences on the Hometown Hero if you go Burton. Merc certainly aint a bad option but for your use case and specifically looking for something more nimble or reactive, I actually think you'd get on really well with the Mega option. And I finally it wouldn't be this forum if I didn't make it harder for you by adding more options... Nerd Superposition, Arbor Guch, Lib EJack, K2 Passport

      The Superposition if you aren't super concerned about your switch performance and you wanna bomb shit and still be able to carve like your Korua, Ejack for the same but if switch performance is a deal breaker (not as good a carver though). The Passport or Guch for general all mountain/freeride. The Freaker for something spicy, and the Mega Merc for that extra responsive and reactive performance that you can still butter and play around on a bit. Probably that or the Algorythm as well if you want a traditional one board quiver killer kind of feel.

      Of your first two you probably want to be looking at the Mtn Twin. From Yes I would actually point you at the Basic Uninc. The Algorithm is another good bet or even the Shadowban if you want to save some money. Last I'd put on your shortlist is the Mercury.

      All of those are solid do anything all mountain twin/twinish boards. Can't go wrong.

      OMG. I just looked up the shadowban and it looks like an awesome and solid choice too. I didn't even know that Ride came out with a totally new board/concept for this season. From the looks of it, the shadowban seems like a perfect 'mirror twin' of the Algorythm in shape and camber profile.

      If anyone in here has more info and/or a lot of experience with Ride snowboards....I am thinking the shadowban probably has a down graded wood core and fiberglass layup compared to the algorythm right? Of which will probably make it a little more softer in flex and more forgiving than the algorythm right...? I am thinking the shadowban might be more of my cup of tea compared to the algorythm.
