I spent most of last season on a Burton Dominant (does that count?). I learned how to carve on it, and it even got me down a 35 degree mogul field without much hassle. Didn't spend much time in powder with it, but it seemed like it wanted to sink. Compared to my NS SL-R, the Dominant is slower, unstable and chattery at high speed, less poppy, more forgiving, and a little bit easier to toss around (probably due to length). It's not really a bad all-mountain board unless you're trying to bomb through crud.
