K2 turbo dream or Lib Tech TRS?
Hey im looking at either this (k2 turbo dream) or the Lib Tech TRS BTX but cant decide between the two...
Any one ridden both or recommend one over the other? I'm looking for an all mountain board for groomers, pow and a bit of park.
Any advice would be awesome, Cheers
(I posted similar question on lib tech page too, just wanted both sides views :P )

I have had this board for over a year now and can honestly say it is the best i've ever owned. I have been riding 50+ days for 20 plus years and owned allot of boards. Everything from Burton, RIDE, Salomon, Nitro, Morrow, Never Sumer, Lib-Tech and more... The thing about the new rocker boards is that it makes you a more efficient rider. I use less energy to ride the same stuff I have been riding with traditional camber.The fact that K2 uses three stage rocker (wakeboards, surfboards) is what separates them from some of the other companies. Three stage means a flat spot under your feet and raised tip and tail which gives you instant grip as soon as you begin your turn and depending how much energy you apply, determines how much edge you use. You also ride more centered when turning which means better balance and more of a traditional boarding movement, like a skate, wake or surf. This is what makes this board super maneuverable at slow speeds and in the trees yet still hold an edge on hard pack and float like a DREAM.There are allot of people saying that rocker is for beginners and I just want to say that is FAAAAAAR from the truth. It does make riding allot easier (EFFICIENT) but why is that a bad thing? If you and your buddies are into working out while you ride then have at it. I personally am trying to get as many pow shoots, tree runs, rock drops, log slides and park runs as I can before the day is done.Turbo Dream is a great board for those who want to ride the mountain as if it were your last day alive.
it says directional in the tech specs.

well its technically both. the stance is set back, but you can adjust it to make it a true twin by setting your binders forward

I bought this board right at the end of the season last year and it was amazing....Even in the crappy conditions too! It handles great in pow, took it to Snowshoe when they had the EPIC pow fall of 5-7 feet right after new years...Handled like a charm once i got my bindings dialed in. Super light and plenty of pop. Good down the mountain/backwoods or in the park too. You definitely wont be let down! Oh and the Rome SDS 390 neon colored bindings look sooooo sick with it too! perfect match..
hey thinkin about pickin this board up as my freeride/pow deck and trying to figure out the best size to get. I am 5'8'', 150 lbs, and have 9 boots, i mostly ride colorado but do trips out to utah cali and other areas. Im leaning towards the 59 but curious to what others think, thanks for the help guys

If you are just looking to ride it as a freeride board and in the powder you could get away with the 161, 159 would certainly work though

This board is super light and insanely fun. I have had a chance to ride a few reverse camber boards, and all I can say is K2 got it right. In the park you can butter a box like you never thought possible. Now I know what you are thinking, "Tip and tail turned up? How am I going to get an edge?" well the answer is I have no idea how the physics work but you are going to lock in to every turn like a downhill GS skier. (Or boarder take your pick.)The sintered base on this lets you bounce off rocks like they are made of rubber and cruise down the hill at break-neck speeds that make the Indy 500 look like a turtle race.Long explanation short. You'll buy it. You'll love it. If you break it you should be riding professionally or you should avoid trees better.
might be hard to learn on a rocker though...
if you can already ride okay, as in you have complete edge control on both edges, then I'd say go for it.

yeah, k2 makes good boards to begin with and considering your a beginner its a good board
