Never Summer Raptor, coming from Premier?
I've got a NS Proto, which I love. Last year I was looking for something a little more speed/carve/big hill oriented, so I tried the Premier F1. It was as advertised - fast and stable but heavy and dead feeling. I'm planning on selling it.
Does the Raptor seem like a logical board to try instead? Last year people talked me out of it because they thought it might be "too much" board for me. (I'm an intermediate-advanced rider, maybe advanced, not expert.)
