So I just rode my K2 Raygun for the first time since I bought it. I totally love it so far! I am fairly new with 3 days under my belt before this time. With this board I was able to link turns a lot better than the other days. Sure I fell a couple times, but the stability on this board compare to the demo boards was amazing. As for the board handling on icy conditions...some people on this forum said it isn't good. Me on the other hand thought it did pretty good. When I mean pretty good, I was able to control it like I do on regular/decent pow. Turns, stopping, stability, etc. Remember, I'M still new so I'M not doing too much but linking turns(carving?) and stopping heel side and toe side.
So... for beginners/intermediates, I highly recommend this board. The confidence this board brings you is awesome! I felt I had the balls to make turns and speed down faster! :P
Thanks everyone for helping me pick my board! Hopefully one day I will before to do jumps and play around like buttering
