so what were you expecting....

idk abt the berz....but the charlie slasher is more of a deep powder cruising machine; it does ok on the groomers but with its rockered nose it doesn't have the bite for groomers.

as for flex...it depends on your weight but also your aggressiveness. the more aggressive the more stiffness you want...if you are too aggressive on a flexy board it will fold up or washout.

there is also torsional stiffness....now that I'm riding a billy goat...i think that the torsional stiffness plays a good part in how the board flows/fluid.

anyway its all about matching and compromises...it sounds like a billy goat is what you want but you got to be really aggressive...and it does ok for pow but deeeep pow a charlie slasher would do better...however perhaps a powder snake or a s rocker...due to the cs is flat between the foot and having camber there instead would help on the groomers.

The Berzerker was pretty much made for riding interior BC terrain. Deep powder, Cliffs, Chutes, Trees and natural jumps.

The Charlie should tear apart any powder you ride.

What exactly is your question?
Sorry, exact question from all that is "does the flex of a board make that big of difference?"

Are you trying to say I over think things? This very well may be true.

The Berzerker was pretty much made for riding interior BC terrain. Deep powder, Cliffs, Chutes, Trees and natural jumps, you should rip apart nelson with that thing.

The Charlie should tear apart any powder you ride.

What exactly is your question? Are you complaining about the boards not preforming well in powder?

I mean what type of terrain are you looking to ride? The stairmaster is a freestyle/park board with traditional camber ( i think ) which wouldn't be ideal for powder riding. Are you looking for a park board or a powder/natural terrain type board?
