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.
