Decision dilemma! Lib tech or NS?
So its like this... I waited a little too long this season to scoop on my first choice for a new board, a Lib Dark Series BTX 161w. I'm currently on a '05 Dark Series (161w) and was looking forward to upgrading to the BTX. I love my DS. Great pop, super skatey feel, and built in risers for my big-ass feet. Adding BTX just makes it that much better. That said, I can't find one anywhere. Part 1 of my dilemma.
Now I've been lurking here for a while and have seen the love that the NS Legacy-R gets, and it turns out I can get one at a good price locally, in either 159 or 161. This board seems to be VERY similar to the Lib. It's a serious contender, but I'm not sure if I'll have any drag issues and if I really want something so similar in size to the board I already have. Dilemma: Part 2.
Finally, while looking at the Legacy, I got to compare it to the Revolver-R and was really surprised to see that they were very similar in flex and size. This just complicates things more. I ride about 80% of the time in SoCal and definitely hit the park about 30-40% time. And as much as Never Summer claims that the Revolver is a park board, it seems that it could be quite comparable to the Legacy, and maybe a little more versatile for the conditions I ride. Dilemma.
So I guess it's really coming down to whether I should wait till next year for the new Lib DS, or grab up either the Legacy or the Revolver. And which one of those 2 would I be most happy with...
