In the K2 lineup I said the Slayblade was the most like the Raptor. And it is. I didnt say the Raptor is closest in the NS lineup to the Blade. You're right, that would be the Heritage.


J, i have not ridden the new happy hour, but plan to before the season is over.

But has anyone ridden the new camber? Just want some info on that lifted stuff. Looks insane.

It's very similar to what was on the Salomon Villain this year. Which was a raoring success for them. It makes total sense and was the perfect move form K2 to bring camber back into the line.

How would you guys compare the K2 Turbo dream to the Jones Flagship?

Was thinking about both boards and would like a pow board that can do everything.

Everyone has great reviews for both boards and makes it hard to decide!!! I'm thinking about buying one for a Hokkaido trip but don't want a dedicated pow board as there isnt enough fresh pow where i live.

Don't know the Turbo so I'll only comment on the Flagship. It's a great board for pow and charge/carve/bomb groomers. Fast, stable, responsive. I love this board, BUT it's a plank... as much it is fun in good conditions, it is hard work in crud n moguls. Doable but there are others that are easier. If you have lot of these conditions, you might want a different board.
