Which Never Summer Board?

I need to get a new board and want to know which Never Summer board would be the best for groomers and light powder (mainly blues, maybe a black or two). It has to be stable because by old board (K2 Raygun) was chattery at high speeds and didn't pop too well out of steep turns. Oh...and I don't do any park riding.

p.s.I was also looking at the K2 Turbo Dream.

Weight: 205
Height: 5'11"
Boot size: 9.5
Age: 42
Budget:$400-$600

I keep looking at the SL, but don't know if it will feel loose when going fast. The Heritage looks appealing, though. I just haven't seen as much praise for it as the SL gets.

I'd go with the Heritage given your weight and the fact that you don't hit the park. But either board is not a bad choice, the Heritage will be less prone to chatter at high speeds. Some other boards you might take a look at: Gnu Billy Goat, Lib Dark Series, Nitro Team Gullwing, and Ride Highlife.

Dont underestimate the SL you can bomb it down groomer runs in the correct size without a problem.

Go the heritage if you want something stiffer.

See which board you can get a better deal on and go with that either way you cant go wrong.
