Default Atomic Radon CT or NS Revolver for Pow

I'll be heading out to Utah riding mainly at Powder Mountain except for a day reserved for snow cat riding outside of Park City. I was planning on taking my 167 Atomic Radon CT swallow Tail...that is until I rode my 161 NS Revolver, which I absolutely love. I love how it carves and basically everything about it.

My question is this, will the Revolver handle powder well? Has anyone ridden it in powder and if so, what was your experience...I can certainly move the rear binding back some.
Should I stick to plan A and take them both out or just use the Revolver? What would you do? I should mention I have yet to ride the Radon in a lot of powder, so I don't have a lot to go on in regards to either board in POW.
Thanks
Andy

Take both imo.... The Revolver may not have enough dampening and ride you instead.

I would definitely take both. While the rocker will help keep you afloat, the Radon will definitely provide a more stable ride (which it sounds like you might want if you haven't done it a whole lot).

Plus... I love my Radon... haha

What do you weigh? I'm about 190 lbs and ride my 161 '10 Revolver EVERYWHERE. It's replaced all my other boards and is the only one I ride now. It handles powder amazingly well (as well as everything else)!

I weigh around 205. Like you I am AMAZED by this board...I'll be thinning the quiver and getting rid of ones I don't need for sure. Good to hear it does well in pow.

Thanks
