K2 Turbo Dream?
 
Is this really the best all mountain rocker? I'm looking for a rocker that can float well on pow and good for jumps. Not that into park so it doesnt have to be that flexy. Is this the board im looking for?

from what I have heard and read it is the board you are looking for. I would also look into a Mervin board.

Never Summer SL-R best with rocker and camber best all mountain board hands down

i couldn't decide whether to get it or the turbo dream, im so glad i chose the slr now, the turbo d is just a full rocker tip to tail better suited for powder than the the all mountain sleigher which the slr is

so if you look at slr, consider the team gullwing

so the sl-r is better for allmountain, and it def seems like the best choice but its pretty expensive. worth it?

I looked at Nitro and they have some pretty cheap boards, the team gullwing looks sick just like the sl-r but is it going to be durable?

I have a great cambered board already and im looking for a rocker to have a more playful stick, but it has to handle powder well and like I said easy to ride off on sketch landings.

so what you guys think SL-R or Team Gullwing?

I believe both will perform similar but will the nitro board have good durability?

thanks for the replies

Wrong. The Turbo Dream is built to be an All-Mountain board. It features K2's low profile all-mountain rocker with a slight setback stance. In all actuality, there are far better boards for powder riding, although the TD still kills it.

One of my favorite features of the TD is K2's harshmellow. I thought it was going to be gimmicky, but it delivered. This board was super stable which is surprising for a rockered board.

You can't really go wrong with either the TD or SLR. Since you say the SLR is expensive, I would save my money and go for a TD.
