K2 snowboards

Heyy a buddy of mine has done alot of riding over his years and is looking to get a snowboard on a budget, i dont know what it is and didnt want to ask, but its proabably around $400, $500 at max. He has it set in his mind that he wants a K2 of some sort. He wants both board and bindings to match. He also wants a board with a bright underside so when he is ridging the tip and tail reflect onto the snow. If u ideas plz sate them in the space below, ill keep looking, but would love your imput becuase i dont know much about the brand, thanks.
I did find one called a K2 playback for $279 and k2 sonic bindings for $99

What part of the country?
What kind of riding does he or she do?
What skill level?

If their getting a K2 get one of the new ones with Bamboo and the good warranties.

we have a Hill basically called mission ridge winter park, all the runs are short and pathetic, but we always have a great time when out, he has riden over 30 times, but it takes him a while to learn, he's not a park guy, but likes his share of air time, he's also goofy footed. if that helps you at all

Gonna have to narrow prices down a bit, hopefully he can find something from last year(or buy slightly used?) looks like even the TurboDream(what I ride) starts at around 479 and wouldn't be a great board for your local hill.

If he's just learning I would focus my money on boots and bindings and maybe get a cheaper board with the intent on buying a new board in 2-3 years as his skills progress.

Oops Brigade, Raygun and WWW all all under 400$

well he already has boot's which are k2 hence the reason he wants k2 gear, the only board i know about was the world wide weapon (WWW) just because of a youtube video, ill look into the other boards you mentioned, but he also goes on trips to the mountains every year.

You must live in Saskatchewan... too bad you're not in Calgary. I have a 156 K2 Podium that is basically brand new (rode it 1 day) along with some Cinch bindings that I'm trying to sell for 300 bucks

Though i currently am riding a gnu board with gnu bindings, i think sticking specifically to a specific company for the sake of matching is a mistake. I think he should be focusing on finding gear to match his ability, riding style, terrain he enjoys, and features of the products hes interested in. Sometimes this sends you in directions away from sticking to a specific brand.
For example, when i got my gnu park pickle it was because i mostly enjoy the park but will ride all over just hanging with my buddies. Because i have some lingering injuries i bought some Flow NXT bindings, to make bending over less work, which were great, BUT, since the few times a year i get to ride, i tend to head out to mountains that get quite a bit of powder, getting back into the bindings in the deep stuff after a "sesh" became a bit of a hassle i switched to the GNU fastec rear entry bindings. Similar features to the flow, but with an easier to use ratchet to get in and out in the traditional method.
Just my opinion. Your mileage may vary.
