Default Salomon Grip vs K2 Turbo Dream


I have a hard time deciding between the Salomon Grip and the K2 Turbo Dream. I am an advanced rider and have been snowboarding for around 16 years. My height is 178cm/5’10’’ and my weight is 68kg/150lbs. I would like to have a board which really excels in powder, but I can also take to rail or a kicker. For example after a fresh snowfall in spring, I go ride pow in the morning and then head for the park in the afternoon if the snow gets too wet out-of-bounds and all lines are tracked.

So here are my questions:

1) Is the Turbo Dream much better in pow compared to the Grip?

2) Is the Turbo Dream much worse in the park?

3) Which one has better pop?

4) Which one has better stability for fast charging?

At the moment, I have a dedicated park stick, so the pow performance is much more important than the park performance. But as mentioned above, I like a board that can handle both and I don’t like going home just for switching out boards. I am also open to other board suggestions, I really like rocker-flat-rocker boards for all-mountain versatility.

Thanks very much!!!
