Default K2 Eco Lite? Or men equiv?

What's the general consensus out there regarding this board? I rode one today and thought it was a way fun little board. I think it's the easiest board I've ever ridden. I'm wondering how it will hold up on steeper stuff and in pow though? People all over are claiming its an intermediate/advanced board, but it is so.....stable with not a ton of edge hold. Thoughts?

I have an Infinity in my living room.....I'm trying to decide if I should take it out of the box or not. Ive never ridden a NS, and the curiosity is killing me! Should I get the Eco Lite (which I know I like), keep the Infinity (which I may like even better) or are they different enough to convince the hubbs to let me keep both?

Thanks in advance!

Personally if were me and the Turbo Dream and SL, I'd pick the Turbo. I like flat to rock more. Flat between the feet just feels more predictable and stable.

I'm opposite of Nivek. While I loved my Turbo dream in powder, I didn't find it as fun on groomers. Flat camber between, flat camber overall actually, to me feels bland. It's not quite the response of a camber, yet not as playful as a rocker.

One thing I do really like about flat cambers is the platform it provides on landings. Feels more stable than other profiles.

Infinity and the Eco Lite are plenty different even just based on camber profiles.
