NS Evo-R vs. K2 Turbo Dream

Whats going on, first post here and I need some opinions. I have been riding for 6 seasons and I am currently riding a K2 WWW which is a nice board but is more park board then i need. I am more of an all mountain east coast guy bombing groomed runs, hitting natural jumps and an occasional flat rail. The WWW gets all kinds of squirrely when bombing. So i have been doing a lot of research trying to decide on the evo-r or the k2 turbo dream. I really like the k2 product but the evo-r also looks like a good choice. This would also be the first board with a rocker setup for me. All and any opinions appreciated. Thanks, Lars.

Yeah i guess its listed as a park board but from reading reviews its seems like it would make a good all around board too. Looks like the darkstar would almost be a better choice then the evo for what im doing.

It appears to me that you just answered your own question here.

Turbo Dream seems like a great board to me. I wouldn't really put it in the same category as the Evo-R though. It think it'll be more of a contrast from your current board.

I use a EVO-R for a all Mont board. If your looking for something on the softer side then go with the EVO. But if your looking for something a little stiffer take a look at SL-R and Premier F1-R.

I think the SL-R and Premier F1-R would be better for bombing the hill.

I nearly came when I rode my revolver. I honestly dont think you can get a better board for ripping everything at a mountain. (groomed mountain at least) Havent taken it in powder. But jesus, was that board fun. Best board I have ever rode.
