Which board will be better for hardpack - Burton Malolo or NS Summit R?


I'm thinking of getting a stick for powder days but can also use on hardpack at end of day.

I have the regular summit 161cm and it wasn't not good for hardpack when all the good powder stash are gone or at end of day when I try to ride back down from top of mountain.

Summit-R

Malolo is good in powder, and not very good everywhere else.

The Never Summer SL-R is the best all mountain board I have been on... Ever.
Buy it... Ride it... Love it...

wow. it's that different?

I still have my NS summit cambered version and really hate riding hardpack with that. i guess the vario grip makes a big difference for hardpack in the rocker version
