156 K2 ambush yay or nay

Im in the market for a new board
currently I ride a K2 Select 162 wide (270)
Im 5.8 180 lbs ish

Im finding the select too big and stiff, its great for full speed runs, big gaps and flat powder
but sharp turns, spins, pop, and flat ground tricks are supper hard for me

buddy has a K2 Ambush 156 for sale $200-250 used 15-20 times (no bindings)
Iv read some reviews and its harder to ride switch due to a smaller tail and set back bindings, other then that Iv heard good things

I mostly ride slopes and venture in to the powder when I can. (some times have troubles turning my board fast enough but it floats very well)

I want to improve my powder ride most of all, also want to start doing more small kickers 180s,360s, ECT not so much rails or boxes

cash is not my biggest concern, but if I can I rather spend less on a board that will do me fine for now and get a new one in a season or 2.


Any advice, questions, tips are welcome
Im hoping to check this board out this weekend and/or have a new one for next time I go to the MTN

You can find better deals out there for that price range. New last season's models might go for that much if you look around, especially on the internet.

Oh and Boardroom's Boxing Week sale is still on until Jan 4; you might wanna check it out . The website says minimum 20% off everything, dunno if it applies to the BR Clearance store too, but that place has decent deals on old gear anyway.
