I believe, and Snowolf will comment on this, that his feedback with the Heritage specifically (or indirectly) led to the Cobra shape. Which has a spade tail for great powder performance. It was the one thing he didn't think was great about the Heritage (powder).
That's odd... because this is what I got back from Never Summer in an email

You can think of it as a mix between an all-mountain board and a stiff park board. With that being said, you may like the Heritage if you are looking for something to ride mostly in the powder and big mountain areas!
