I have a NS Heritage X 163 that I use for freeriding. Compared to the other boards I've used it is great. Now from my understanding with the NS line, the Raptor is even better at charging when compared to the heritage and the Cobra is better in powder. Not sure how the cobra compares to the heritage in terms of charging things. So if either of those boards are better at freeriding than the heritage, and as far as I can tell, its pretty great. You probably can't go wrong with either of those boards.
I have no experience with the burton boards or the jones. Though I did mess around with one of the jones carbon flagships at the Further movie premier I went to. Looked like a great board and was crazy stiff so it would probably be pretty fun as a hard charging board.
