Default How is NS Rockers on Groomers?

From what I understand, the Neversummer SLR, or other rocker boards excel in pow, butter, jib etc.. How is the SLR on groomed runs? I'm on the eastcoast and board "mainly" groomers, hardpacks, but see pow everynow and then when I head up to Vermont or CO trip. My other choice is 09 K2 Believer. I'm 5"11, 140 size9 if that helps. Which would you recommend?

Thank you for your time..

Out of the various companies with rocker I've ridden ( Salomon, K2, Stepchild, Never Summer, Mervin) there's is super solid on groomers. Plus the new sidecut grips really well on ice because of the kinks in it. I've ridden the SL R on a lot of varying conditions and didn't notice chatter like I did with other rockers or instability problems.
