Default Help look for a powder board

I'm looking to up my quiver and need a new powder board. I've narrowed it down to a 161 K2 Ultra Dream, 160 Salomon Powder Snake, or a 161 Capita Charlie Slasher. The price isn't the issue its just the fact that I have three choices that are all good. I need some advice on which I should choose. Background on me I'm 5'10" 180lbs and I'll be using it on both open faces and tree runs.

Ultra will be best in not primo snow or on groomers. Charlie best on a wide open bowl. Snake in the trees.

You'll be happy with any of them.

I know this is a joke but it scares me that people actually choose boards based on graphics.

If the boards are very similar why not?

I would never ride a board I didn't like the graphics on...

Sick stick/snake is a bumpy ride if it's not fresh. With that said, snake will kill it in the trees. For mammoth though, might go with the slasher yo.

I would have no problem riding a board with those graphics. I'd rather have that than something with half nekkid girls all over it.

And I say this as a straight man who quite enjoys girls in various forms of undress.

The Charlie Slasher is unsinkable. For a pure pow stick, I'd go that direction. Like Nivek said, the Ultra Dream would be the best of the three all around and the Snake would be the best in tight trees, but you're looking for a dedicated pow stick.

I've hung onto my CS longer than any board I've ever owned. It'll be facing it's first challenge for a spot in the quiver this year now that I've kind of fallen into ownership of a Slash Straight. I doubt I'll keep both. One will likely end up getting dealt.

With all due respect to the other poster who must be high off of his ass right now, that's a women's board because no self respecting straight guy would ride that shit unless it was a joke or he was doing it because he lost a bet.
