Default Angus vs Turbo Dream

I'm looking for a good change-of-pace board to go with my super stiff, aggressive K2 Slayblade 159W.

I'm on vacation, and leave tomorrow, so I need to make a decision TODAY whether or not to buy a used Rossignol Angus 157 for $160.

The Slayblade is great for the hardest of hard charging, but I'm getting a little older and looking for something a bit easier to tame (the 159W can be a beast! It was what was left on sale, and I used to weigh 185lbs)

So now I'm looking for something that:

- I can still charge on (stable carving at high speed and steep terrain, stable landings),
- Has good pop for launching off rollers etc.
- Quick turn initiation
- Good in pow
- Is just a little more playful

Stats:

Height: 5'10"
Weight: 150lbs
Foot: 11 US
Riding ability: Advanced to Expert (20 years riding)
Riding Style: Hard charging, fast, steep, trees, pow, natural jumps/cliffs (no park/pipe/rails/flatland tricks etc.)

In all my research, I think what I really want is a K2 Turbo Dream, so I was curious if anyone could compare the Angus & the TD? Also, I've only ridden cambered and flat boards, so I'm unsure of the Rossignol Amptek camber profile (1.5mm camber between bindings, earlyrise rocker in tip and tail)?

Any input would be greatly appreciated, thank you my boarding brethren!

hmm...just found BA's review on the Angus, not very positive. I better just go with my gut and wait for a good deal on a TD.
