ok so then i've narrowed my possible new deck options to NEVER SUMMER Premier F1-R / SL-R and LIB TECH TRS BTX j/w which board every chooses for more of a free ride

edit: i have no clue what NS means by DAMP maybe that would help me choose between the F1-R and SL-R

the premier is the most freeride-oriented out of those

damp means it sucks up vibrations and stuff like that - some people like it while others prefer a more direct snow-to-foot feeling

maybe look at a heritage-r or heritage-xr

i would really love a all mountain free ride board but there really doesn't seem to be too many out there any suggestions? honestly leaning towards the premier f1

its got the flex i want and dampening is high which should equate to less vibrations
