Hey i need some help, i can't decide between Lib Techs TRS or the k2 Turbo dream (2010 models).
I'm looking for an all mountain board that will handle bombing the groomers, some pow runs (got a week of powder riding later next month) and a bit of time in the park. What are your thoughts?

the problem with rockered boards is they tend to not be as stable at high speeds and on big landings. Both boards would work ok for all mountain riding, and the trs has magnatraction which is nice especially on ice, even if you don't ride the ice coast magnatraction is still good because it gives you a lot more control of the board

If you want a rockered board thats stable at speeds and landings, you need one with camber/rocker. Lib Tech calls it C2 BTX and its in the T Rice, Dark Series and the upcoming version of the TRS. all three would be good all mountain boards.

Never Summer has camber rocker as well in their boards, just without magnatraction. for all mountain riding the Never Summer SL-R would be the best choice

It sounds like you need a board soon but if you can wait for the new stuff to come out to get a new trs it will have C2 BTX
