Question NS Legacy-R or CAPiTA FCG ???

EDIT: just saw that I can get the '10 Legacy-R for $375 tomorrow. I could get the '09 CAPiTA FCG for $160 -- is the RC tech worth the extra cash?

I'm looking for a new all mountain board. I have a Burtom Dom 156 that I ride park with (day trips to big bear), but want a new board for everyday riding (mammoth). I'm coming from an older ('04 maybe?) Atomic Exeter and Ride EX bindings. Board was 160cm, waist 26.7. I will be riding this board mostly on groomers/steeps/trees with a few laps through the park too. To me there is a huge difference between my Atomic and Dom on groomers at speed (not just edge control, but flex), so I worry about getting an all mtn board that is too soft.

6' 190 lbs
size 12 boots

I have a set of Ride NRCs on the way, just looking for a good priced board now. Had my mind set on an Alibi 161W ($300), but started reading up on NS RC tech and looked into a Legacy-R (no '09s left, so too much $$). Also looked into an '09 Capita FCG, a little put off by the extruded base, though, but is only $189. Would like to keep it under $300.

Any and all thoughts and suggestions greatly appreciated.

F-it. Went with the FCG 161 for $160 shipped from c3. I want to demo a rocker/camber NS board to see if I like the way it rides before I drop the coin on one. Still not convinced that they will handle my speed runs the way a regular cambered board will. Plus if I do like them, hopefully I can find a 50% off end of season sale and I'll have both boards for the regular price the Legacy would have set me back at.

Hope you enjoy the FCG. I've been looking for a wide board as well and just found the FCG today. It is an awesome deal, but the extruded base makes me wonder.

I have similar size and price requirements and also considering: a ride antic, k2 darkstar (not sure if it'll be good for all mountain), a burton mayhem and a nitro....
