Default [Consolidation] Deep pow-bility of all mountain boards

EDIT: While I appreciate all the recommendations, the original intention of this thread is to consolidate the effectiveness of actual boards in deep powder. Subjective I know but better than guessing from board spec

Still trying to decide which all mountain board (deep pow friendly) to buy and well, during the course of my research, I came across quite a few similar post, just tot that it might be a good idea to consolidate what I have found so far. Should be a good reference for people troubled by board sizing.

Short of a super short board (pun intended), most boards should be able to handle up till 8" worth of fresh pow. So feel free to add your board below if you usually ride in pow > 8".

Name, weight, total riding days, powder condition, board,url?

U call this deep?
