Cant decide! ,opinions please on park pickle, artifact 185, and turbo dream

As seen above. after a good amount of research i have narrowed it down to those 3. gnu park pickle, rome arifact 1985, and the k2 turbo dream.
might look at a postermania 1985 as well!

i am more interested in freeriding, pow runs and especially buttering now but i still like to hit the park every so often and when in the park im more of a small - medium kickers kinda guy.

opinions/suggestions?

thanks in advance

got an artifact 1985. Its super soft, great for buttering and park but its not too great from anything huge. I can ride groomers fine with it. It will have chatter at higher speeds though

The Pickle and Artifact are better suited for park riding. The Turbo Dream is best for your style of Freeriding which is how I ride. I love the Turbo Dream. That board is just sick. Handles the pow and still holds up like a champ on ice and groomers. The harshmellow keeps the board chatter at bay on steeper runs. The TD also has a more mellow rocker than compared to the other two boards. I personally didn't like your fourth choice either. The postermania was too soft for my liking.

Trust me, for freeriding, the Turbo Dream kills those other boards.

FWIW I saw a kid snap the tail off his Artifact 1985 a few weeks ago at Timberline. I ran into him in the lift line on Sunday and he was riding an Indoor Survival.
