Just looked at that thread
out of interest and it seems pretty clear from the emails that the SL and the heritage have symmetrical sidecuts and the inserts have a 0.5 inch setback for slightly better carving/float.
The video you posted (from NS) states the opposite that the sidecut is setback on those two boards
Which one is it.
Exactly, that is the question.
However, I have reservations about the customer service response:
- It is simply ambiguous. 'Symmetrical' could mean symmetrical with respect to the inserts. Or it could mean symmetrical/centered along the length of board. Two different things. Heck, it could mean even more things - like that the sidecuts are not off-set against each other (like the old Burton boards), etc.
- NS customer service, while really good about responding quickly, has a history of pretty poorly informed statements. For instance, they tried to tell me that my weight did not matter for board sizing and that I should go by height (the old bullshit about board length between nose and chin) and/or the same length as my existing board (really, even if it is an old-fashioned camber stick? Me thinks not...). I have more faith in Gags getting his facts correct...
