I was set on getting next years Salomon Assassin 162W as my all mountain board. But, I want something wider now with moar camber.
Looking for a twin with the following specs:

Length :160-162
Waist: 27-28cm+
Tip/Tail : 31-32cm
Sidecut: around 8.5

I am looking at the Prior AMF 162W but really don't know anything about the company.

Sounds like the no compromise option is the Donek Knapton Twin. They do custom sizing, and Ryan rides a 31cm waist.

I'm looking for the same type of board, and too was really interested in the Salomon Assassin (I also love Wolle) I'm wondering how the Yes 20/20 rides in hardpack conditions. It's stiff and cambered, but short, I think it would do ok. Evaluating that for my next year's board. Seems a bit dicey as I mostly ride the East Coast, and only get powder on trips.

You may want to also check out the Marhar Lumberjack. It's short fat true twin, camber but softer flex and a unique side to side rocker.

I should have specified true twin centered stance, is what I'm looking for

I will probably email the guy at Donek. I really don't want to spend $800 on a board. The Marhar is flat camber, and the EE is way to short for me.

I have a Prior AMF 156cm, but I had it pressed as traditional camber instead of their suggested R-C-R.  It is incredible in everything except powder (unsurprisingly) but that wasn't what I wanted it for, anyway (go figure).  It's a bit just above medium stiffness (maybe 6.5-7/10), with great pop, just the right amount of dampness, incredible edge hold (even on ice) and a final build that shows attention to detail.

I have no idea how the R-C-R version rides -- I haven't taken any of their boards for demos, and this is my first Prior board.  My experience with them was great.  As you already know, they can modify/build to your requested specs as well.  If you're in the USA then it's an even better deal given the current exchange rate.

If you're at all interested, just fire off a message to them or give them a call.

Prior's are awesome, I have 4 with a fully custom one on the way.. As previously stated, build quality is 2nd to none and they ride awesome... I can't say enough about them... Plus you will be getting a snowboard hand built by actuall snowboarders, in North America... Not China or the UAE...

Prior's are nice, but they are notorious for delaminating

I've owned  about 10 Priors over the last decade with never an issue.. Have a split Khyber XTC that's 5 years old with well over 150 days on it and it's still just fine...

Priors have 3 year warranties...
