Iím looking for a new all-mountain board and need some advice. The boards on my list right now are K2 Turbo Dream, Burton Sherlock, Yes the Dudes/Optimistic and probably last years used Joystick wide. Iím also open to other boards.
Problem is that I wonít be able to test any of the boards (I have tested the Joystick last year and I liked it, even thus it was 150). And Yes boards I canít even see before I buy.
I think that Turbo Dream would be safe choice. Joystick would be least expensive one and good choice too, but I donít know how it works in powder. Sherlock sounded like a nice board, but Iím not sure if itís too soft. One of the Yeses might be the best choice, but those I would have to buy solely based on the internet reviews (which there arenít many).
Has anyone ridden more than one of those boards and could give some advice?
Iím 5í11íí, 180 lbs and my boot size is US10. Last year I rode 08 malolo 62 on powder days and 09 uninc 57 for everything else.
