Not to hijack, but what do you think of that Templar overall? I just ordered last year's model for $140? Seemed like what I'm looking for. Mild camber underfoot with rocker in the tips, mid-flex, and slight setback. I figure for $140 if it's not what I'm looking for I'll just flip it on Craigslist for what I paid and move on.
But to answer your question, no. You want a damper board. Not necessarily longer or stiffer, just damper. This is where NS excels. Those boards are damp as all hell.
