How much would these NS HD or SL 2014 be in USA? The Aussie prices are definitely way up.

Get something more powder oriented for Japan, especially if you are going to Hokkaido/Japan. Even the more powder focused NS boards like the Cobra are basically groomer/jib sticks in Hokkaido.

Hmmmm and I thought the SL is a one quiver board.

It is, which means it is designed for and performs ok/well across a wide range of typical conditions - ice, hardpack, groomers, light pow, etc.
Thing is that in Japan (especially Hokkaido) you rarely encounter conditions that would be considered 'typical' in most other places. Even the groomers have more pow stashes than some entire mountains elsewhere.
So why go for a board that handles ice and hardpack (which you rarely if ever encounter) but sacrifices powder performance? Makes no sense.

It is like saying a 3-in-1 jacket (with removable lining) is very versatile. Sure it is in places like Europe, but it would be pointless in Singapore where most of its features/versatility would be wasted.

No point getting a general/versatile product for extreme conditions.
