Need some help finding a board:
I'm 165 lbs
size 12
6'2" and ride in NY. Usually a 1500' vert resort, mostly hard packed and ice.
No pow
No rails

Love to ride switch and hit natural small jumps on the side of the trails.
I've got a Blacklist 154 that I love and looking for a cambered board, twin or close to twin that would be a bit more for speed and railing turns than the Blacklist.

So something more stable/stiff but not looking for some crazy stiff plank.

Would the cambered Rome Agent work?
Maybe 156W or 158W?

Also looking at the Capita NAS 157W
Any thoughts on these two , or other suggestions would be appreciated!

Signal Freedom Machine, K2 Happy Hour, Salomon Sabotage, Nitro T1 camber, or a Bataleon Evil Twin. If you're shooting for 56-57 as long as the board isn't super narrow you'll be fine on regular width decks.

Freedom Machine sounds great, but I was hoping to find something on sale.

Bataleon has TBT, the K2 has some weird camber / camrock, and the Salomon is "flat our camber".
The Salomon may just be camber+marketing, but I didn't want to take the chance.

So for plain old camber, it was down to the Nitro and the Agent. Ended up buying a 2012 Agent for $188.

What about a good old Bustom Custom or Custom X? The custom has about 1/2" of setback so rides quite "twin like"... The X is obviously more aggressive!
