Default never summer legacy or k2 turbo dream

i am looking for a board for riding groomers and deep stuff -i gave up most park stuff after blowing my knee out. so far i have been pointed toward k2's, but i have been reading a lot about NS but have never rode one. at first i was told to check out the k2 gyrator, but from what it seems, it isn't a great board for groomed runs. i am looking for suggestions on either of the 2 boards i listed, or any others.

Im buying mine solely on friends reviews and research Ive done. Heard nothing but good things. I can offer a first hand review after the first weekend in December after my first time out with it. I did lay hands on the deck the other day end it looks very nice.

I'd say the Turbo just cause you have some more flexibility with its riding capabilities. It will do everything the Legacy will and a little more.

do you think that the turbo would float better in deep stuff because of the flexibility?

Technically you don't want flex for float. That being said, the Turbo is designed for all mountain. And when Wille-Yli Luoma isn't riding the Believer in the backcountry, he's riding the Dream.
