Angry NS SL-R or NS Heritage ???

Hi i'm trying to get a new board and i need some help on which board to get is best for me. i snowboard for 4 year and i'm doing good on greens and blue and some black. i go to lake tahoe to board so just normal resort groomers. i dont do alot of tricks. what size of the board shold i get ? i'm 5'11 175lb. i'm using a 160 NS titain right now to me i feel like titan is really good on greens and blue but when it get to black is really hard to control.

That really depends.
I have little to no experance with the Heritage-R, but alot with the SL-R 151 & 161.
Alot depends on what you want to do.
Want to rip groomers? pratice some freestyle? Ride glades/pow?
From my experance a 151 SL-R is great for fast/tight edge to edge turns & easy to butter & easy to ollie (lots of pop). I should also note it holds a great edge.I have taken it into the trees & it was super easy but I prefer a longer stick for pow conditions.
The 161 SL-R is great for glades/pow (with a set back stance), still ollies well, holds a great edge & harder for me to butter.

YMMV.

I don't understand why a Titan would give you trouble on blacks? It should be better on blacks than on flat groomers. Oh, it's b/c it's not the board, it's you.
