Perhaps posting this topic in this forum is bordering foolishness but these are the two boards I'm looking at this year. Only 1 will be my all-mountain slayer. I was about to give the TD the nod but I like what I'm hearing about the SL-R. Any suggestions welcome. Just wondering where the gurus be at.
I own both. Really depends on what your preference is whether it's reverse camber with a micro camber in the tips or a rockered deck. Both are solid choices but two different rides. The SL R has a better sidecut due to the vario for gripping in all conditions and you don't have to stay centered on it like you do with the Turbo Dream. But the Turbo Dream I find to be better in deeper pow due to the rocker design.
I will be tracking pow fields all winter, but I still want a board I can take to the butter pad if necessary, ride occasional groomers and jibs in case I'm riding with someone slow. On a typical mid-winter day at Squaw, which board would you have more fun with?
if you're looking for 3-stage rocker boards with bulletproof construction and made primarily for park, look at Smokin's D.I.R.T. rocker boards (they also come with MTX)
thanks but I'm looking for a rocker board that rides really well in powder and all over the mountain; good carving/cruising/edgehold on groomers, and still kill it all over the park. I'm leaning toward the Turbo Dream but I'm genuinely intrested in the SL-R. I know what size I'd get if I got the TD, but I'm not sure for the NS- 165lbs 5'9 should I get a 155 or a 158?
