Default K2 Eco Lite or Jones Twin Sister for All Mountain

I was hoping I could get some advice/ input from anyone who's ridden either of these boards.

I'm looking to upgrade my board this winter and am stuck deciding between the Jones Twin Sister and the K2 Eco Lite. I'm a intermediate - advance rider who doesn't spend any time in the park, so jibbing and pipe is not a concern for me at all. I don't see too much powder, but would like a board that would hold up on the rare powder days, but can deal with the choppy end of the day crud that most resorts get. Basically I want a board that I can be confident on throughout the mountain.

From my understanding the main differences between the two is that the Jones has better edge control, has more pop to it for some jumps, and might be a better carving board . Whereas the Eco Lite will have better turn initiation and feel slightly more stable between the feet. I don't think turn initiation is much of a concern for me, as I'm no longer a beginner ... and think I can hold my own as far as the stability is concerned. I also don't ride much switch, so I'm not too concerned with the boards being directional over true twins.

Was hoping to get some input!

I'd greatly appreciate any advice anyone might have. Whether it be overall quality of the boards, how they'll hold up, or anything like that!
