Arrow Replacement for Raygun

So my K2 Raygun 161 + Formula Binding setup was jacked/disappeared from the airport this month , but I've got more boarding coming up in a few weeks that I'm not gonna cancel.

I liked the Raygun - it was just... comfortable, good flex (maybe even too flexible - which takes away from pop some?). Tried a Head 158 rental this month - which was OK, maybe a little too stiff, but it was quite nice to have a damage waiver on the board.

Before just buying another Raygun - is there a "next step" i should think about after the raygun?

About my riding -
I like using ALL the mountain (i have mountain-ADD), from greens to blacks, trees to moguls - comfortable regular and switch on most everything, playing with surface tricks, and do some small/intermediate terrain park stuff. I'm ~180lbs.

I'm hoping not to spend a lot on the next board - i'm still a bit shell shocked from having my last one disappear....

the K2 Turbo Dream is often referred to as the raygun's bigger brother so maybe that'd be something to check out

After researching the current deals and boards - narrowed it down to:
K2 Turbo Dream 161
K2 Slayblade 158.

at 180 lbs and 11 boots - a bit worried about the slayblade's size for pow... are the worries unfounded?
