Thinking about getting last years model but I can't find any unbiased reviews on it. I think it would be a solid all mountain board but I still like to get other opinions. Also, I know signal is a lesser known company so does any one have any info on their build quality, customer service, etc.?

I haven't owned a signal before, but always go to this site to research, they dont seem biased at least from my purchase based on their comments

Signal is based out of and makes their boards in California.  Generally speaking their boards get positive reviews.  A few years ago I had a pair of Signal pants that were pretty decent (I think they were 10K/10K).

Here's Angry's review of the Omni:

I'm a fan of the signal omni...
It's been said by quite a few people, It isn't excellent at one thing, it's descent to good at everything. 
jack of all trades, master of none kind of deal....

If you want to ride park, get a park board. POW, get a pow board. all mountain... this would be probably fit the bill better than most.

Haven't had the need to call Signal's customer service yet. Rode my Vita Rocker, (female version of park rocker), last season, about 35+ full days of hard riding, no boxes nor rails. Base held up great even after jibbing trees and running over bare surfaces and branches, edge is strong, top sheet doesn't scratch easily. But board itself is on the heavier end compare to some other park boards of the same size.
My buddy rode his Park Rocker for few seasons now, 100+. Same riding style as me. But he is about 200lbs on a 154. His is an older version with extrude base. Great board, the board held up great.
Go for it if this suits your riding style. They definitely make great reliable boards.

200lbs on a 154 park rocker sounds like an amazing sight.

signal is one of the most legit companies out there.  founded and run by snowboarders, made in the us at their own factory, quality materials and craftsmanship, and they are one of the more fair-priced companies as well, as far as their averages and the ride you get per price.  don't even bother questioning them as a company.  if they have a board you're stoked on, go for it.

the omni is a medium flex do-anything board.  the camber extends just past the binding inserts, so you are actually able to weight and unweight it, to take advantage of some of the reasons camber works.  the rocker kicks up maybe half way down the nose and tail.  this keeps it noticeably looser than if it were full camber, adds to the ease of buttering and jibbing, and definitely helps you float in powder.  it's a great board for someone who wants one board for everything, or just for someone who knows they like a board that fits that bill.

Thanks everyone! Probably gonna go with it. I think the board would fit me well and I'm liking what everyone is saying and the fact that its made in 'Merica is a huge plus!

I was in awe the first time I saw him ride it. We mainly ride Sierra@Tahoe. No boxes nor rails. Small to smaller medium and natural hits. Lots of butters and some light jibs. He surfs and used to skateboard, probably helps. Its also a great powder board for him due to the shape of Signals Rocker. I let him rode my Sierrascope 152, I wasn't really willing to but I let him because I was curious. He kills it. So I sold it to him. He rode it for 50+ days and still no problem. Still feel poppy.
I'm 125lbs and ride on 147s and one 144 now.
We ride black Ds too but...Definitely doesn't go as fast as a board in our weight range and barely handle medium features but we too old now can't get hurt...need to work.
