Flat between has always eliminated that feeling for me so I just prefer that or camrock.
Slayblade will do fine in pow, you'll have to site on your back foot more than the Ultra or Turbo, but the Blade will be more powerful in general just cause you always have tip to tip engagement with the board.
More groomers, rough situations: Blade, Turbo, Ultra.
More pow, nicer conditions: Ultra, Turbo, Blade.
