Powder/Freeride Board - Help me decide!
 
I have a 2010 Custom V-Rocker Ltd for park/pipe/shitty days.

Now I'm looking for a board to handle the freeride and deep pow days.
I also enjoy natural terrain features so landing/riding switch is required from time to time.
I'm an expert/advanced rider who is just having a hard time deciding.
My home mountain is Kirkwood for reference.

Ok here is the short list. It is open for suggestions.
All of these boards would be sized between 156cm to 162cm

Alphabetical Order:

Burton Malolo
Jones Flagship
K2 Gyrator
Lib Tech Travis Rice (w/ horsepower? or no?)
NeverSummer Raptor
Rome Anthem SS
????

Thanks everyone!

Custom Flying V Squeezebox, Sherlock, Raptor, Coda, BSOD. That's what I'd be looking at.

I have the Malolo and love riding it in powder but with it's setback and fat nose it is a bit difficult to ride switch.

I'm a huge fan of the K2 slayblade

bataleon undisputed maybe?

I got a Yes Optimistic and it seems like a great choice for what you're looking for...

I'd suggest: Bataleon Undisputed, K2 Gyrator, Ride Slackcountry, Jones Flagship, Gnu Billy Goat.

My vote is for the T.Rice in 161.5 or the k2 Gyrator in 162. The gyrator has a more powder oriented camber going on. It would be great in pow and average on the groomers. The T.rice would have a better balance. kills it in both powder and hard carving groomers.

I have the t.rice non HP 161.5

NS Raptor would also be sick.

I have ridden a Gyrator and I loved it! Its a great board and feels super light under foot.

I am going to attempt to ride the Raptor this weekend. I've always wanted a NS.

Lib Tech is a great company and I'd really like to give them a shot but I just need to find a demo to ride.


Its good to get some feedback from everyone!

I think the list is looking like: (alpha)
K2 Gyrator
Lib Tech T.Rice
NS Raptor
