a www rocker or Ride Crush?

Hey all, looking at forking out for a new board for the first time in years.

Have narrowed it down to the www rocker and ride crush I think.

the www is $100 less, has 2cm more effective edge and comes with a 3degree bevel so i don't have to do it myself.

Basically I want the board for park and some powder. I currently ride a 52 and while I can ride it in powder, I struggle a little. So I figure if I get a 52 with some rocker, it will be a bit better for when I go to canada.

But which one is better performance wise?
I know the ride has more pop, but does it have anything else over the www? is that extra 2cm effective edge going to help me in powder at all?

I'm not really, but it's obviously going to be better than my current same size, 05 model board in powder.
My current board is made for park and deep snow kickers. So the www can't be anyworse in powder with that extra rocker right? not to mention it is probably going to be substantially lighter with the tech that has developed since I last bought a board.
