Default looking for a dedicated powder board

Plain and simple just looking for a board that i will only ride in deep powder. From what i heard i should go long and wide. Was thinking about a NS Cobra X 163 but would like to spend a bit less since i would ride it more then 5 time a year. Any suggestion on a good board for powder.

If it were me, 47 Powdersnake or that crazy short and wide YES. Short boards in pow are dumb amounts of fun.

I would say a NS Summit or a Smokin Pinnr. Both great pow boards

Bataleon camel toe, hovy and goat. Depends if you just want it to float or also look like a pow rocked IE. swallow tail and huge nose. Direction twin will be more versatile, but something like a fish will be funner. Honestly, going fast enough anything will float.

Aaaaaand /thread

I have a charles slasher and it was one of the best purchases I've ever made.

Cheap.
Looks like a snowboard.
Still rides well when everything is tracked out.

The Cameltoe is next on my list. I want one of them weird cock shaped powboards and LOVE TBT.

Jeez there are a lot more options then what i was thinking. Based on the price alone I'm thinking about going with the Charlie Slasher. I really never even though about getting a dedicated powder board and my reason to do so is that i have been spending more and more time in deep powder with a bunch of skiers. They are really comfortable in 3+ feet and I was starting to have issues maneuvering and if i fell i would be completely immobilized. So i really just need a board that will keep me up and moving in the deep stuff. So from anyone with experience does the Charlie Slasher still seem like a good bet?
