Default OPINIONS: NS Raptor X vs Nitro Pantera LX

I'm looking to get a hard charging board for speed, carving, and park jumps.

I owned NS Titan TX in the past, have a Burton T6 and have almost made up my mind on the Raptor (which I never tried) until I took out the Nitro Pantera for a demo ride.

The Pantera was soooo super fast I could not believe how I was blowing by everyone in sight! And I was on a 160 (my size 164+) and can`t imagine what the LX model will feel like. From double diamonds to cat walks... that board just kills it. But most notable was how damn and smooth the ride was on chop, ice, bumps or anything. Was really awesome. And I rode the T6 before and after! Truth be said, I loved it twice as much as my T6! Oh, forgot to mention it pops you to the moon!

Was wondering if anyone had the experience of riding this board (Pantera LX) and the NS Raptor to give me an opinion on the 2 side by side in terms of:

1. Speed
2. dampness
3. Edge hold on ice
4. Pop and landing park jumps

Keep in mind I tried the Pantera but interested in the Pantera LX.

Cheers & thnx in advance...
