The speed date sounds like the best option of those three, if you're looking for a powder-capable board that will rail on groomers - it's the stiffest.  The Deep Thinker may be a good option for you as well.

Lots of good non-Burton options out there as well (i.e. Fullbag, US Shapes, Korua, a bunch of Nitros, etc.).

That is fucking ridiculous. It should say in the description "this is a wide board if you have tiny feet".

Yeah, that is silly.  25.6 isn't even a mid-wide, IMO.

they should call it MW at best, since it is at least wider than the normal sizes. weird. If I wanted the 56 length I’d go for the “wide” for sure

 Burtons idea of wide has been pretty dumb now for a while...

Last season I had an issue with the narrow waist on the Speed Date so I replaced it with the wide version.   Speed Date for the groomers.

I wouldn't say it sucks, but definitely not on the same level to a Speed Date.

On powder, definitely shines.
