After researching the current deals and boards - narrowed it down to:
K2 Turbo Dream 161
K2 Slayblade 158.
at 180 lbs and 11 boots - a bit worried about the slayblade's size for pow... are the worries unfounded?

|alex12||the K2 Turbo Dream is often referred to as the raygun's bigger brother so maybe that'd be something to check out|

Replacement for Raygun
So my K2 Raygun 161 + Formula Binding setup was jacked/disappeared from the airport this month , but I've got more boarding coming up in a few weeks that I'm not gonna cancel.
I liked the Raygun - it was just... comfortable, good flex (maybe even too flexible - which takes away from pop some?). Tried a Head 158 rental this month - which was OK, maybe a little too stiff, but it was quite nice to have a damage waiver on the board.
Before just buying another Raygun - is there a "next step" i should think about after the raygun?
About my riding -
I like using ALL the mountain (i have mountain-ADD), from greens to blacks, trees to moguls - comfortable regular and switch on most everything, playing with surface tricks, and do some small/intermediate terrain park stuff. I'm ~180lbs.
I'm hoping not to spend a lot on the next board - i'm still a bit shell shocked from having my last one disappear....
