Is the Burton Flying V any good in the half pipe?

Hey people, I'm looking to buy a new board. I currently have a K2 instinct which has been great, I'm getting new boots and bindings and figure I may as well get a second board while I'm at it (will hang on to the old one).

I'm 5'10, 180 pounds, size 11 boot, fairly advanced rider (do a bit of everything, except jibs). I'm looking for a good all rounder board that can handle deep powder, big jumps, and I also want to take it into the pipe a fair bit. From the research I've done it sounds like the Burton Flying V is a great all rounder - can take it pretty much anywhere, however a few of the reviews said it didn't grip well in icy conditions.

Has anyone had much experience with this board? How does it go in the park? My K2 was great for getting big air, but I found it difficult to do anything too tricky on it (spins, some more advanced grabs etc), not sure if this was because of the board or just me.

Danny Davis rides just OK in the pipe I think. And yeah, FLying V is fun in the park pipe, whatever.
