Default k2 Raygun or Yes Jackpot

Hey guys, lm looking for a new quiver. Will be my only one so need it do well is a number of aspect

I mainly ride on hard groomer and icy condition, with maybe 2-5 pow days only. l like to play around a bit but also like to bomb a trail every so often and make nice long carves. I had a Rome Agent rocker and found it kind of unstable in highspeed.

At first l was looking and set on the Jackpot, but when l felt it in store, it felt kind of soft in comparision to the K2 raygun which had me worried if l try to go bomb a trail, but heard the mellow camber will help with icy condition


Comments is highly appreciated as to which l should grab!

I'm replying since no-one else does. From what I've come to understand, speed and edge hold on ice seem to the very areas where the Raygun falls a little short, so you might want to look at something else.

i would highly recommend getting a deck with magnetraction if you ride mainly icy/hard pack. i love my turbo dream (big brother to ray gun) but edge hold on ice and hard stuff is definitely not it's forte.
