Mervyn twin boards in Pow?

Okay gang, any thoughts on this??

All 2013 boards:
LT Skate Banana - rocker
LT Banana Magic - enhanced rocker
GNU Space Case - elliptical camber/rocker
LT TRS - C2 rocker/camber
LT TRice HP - C2 rocker/camber

Which one will perform best in powder??

None of them are dedicated powder boards, but for the times I get out west and find some powder, which do you think would perform best?
Looking strictly at pow performance here.

Thanks.

I never get tired of watching a good pow run. Thanks for sharing.

Of the boards I have (listed above) I enjoy the Banana Magic the most. Good to see it runs well in the powder per your video.

From the comments above, I also have a 156 Skate Banana, which is the second longest LT offers. I'll assume that will be sufficient.

Not ready to add another board, but I'll keep the Dirty Pillow in mind.
Thanks for the comments.

it runs good enough if you cant bring another board, but after that week i went and got a pow board; charlie slasher. i think it is worth it to have a powder specific board, even if it doesn't get used that much it makes those epic days even better

thing I do not like about skate banana in deeper poo...it is too flexy and just folds up and you got to ride weight centered...cause if you get too much on the nose or tail...it just folds up and sinks. So depens on the poo...banana for less than 10-12" but any thing deeper, better with a stiffer deck like Charlie with a shovel nose and a cam tail, or something with c2btx

I've rode a 56 and 59 skatebanana and the 59 is quite a bit stiffer. I have a 165 snowmullet that is the same flex but has a huge nose. Compared to a 164 Charlie the 165 mullet is just way more fun to ride, floats more and turns quicker. The flat tail on the Charlie gives the board a dead feel.

So, any recommendations for a pow board that rides well switch?
I like to keep my neck flexible by looking over the other shoulder as much as my favoured shoulder. LOL!
