Default NS Premier FL-R vs NS Legacy-R

Is there really that big of a difference? i have the opportunity to buy either one of these boards.. I've heard even though the premier is meant to be freeride, ive heard people have been able to take it all over cuz its so lite now? which ones better in ur opinion? the graphics on the premier look a lot better in my opinion

If by Pemier FL-R you mean the Premier F1-r then it is considered a freeride deck.
The Legacy-r is a wide version of the SL-R which is their all mountain/freestyle deck.

Different boards for different things. Guess it depends on the type of resorts and your riding style on which one fits you.
The season is almost upon us!!!!

I have both the Premier and the SL-R (standard width version of the Legacy, but one degree less stiff -- per NS). The SL-R is probably similar enough to the Legacy to give a basis for comparison.

The SL (161cm) is more agile, turns a bit more quickly, and is a bit lighter. I like it better for messing around in trees.

The Premier (163cm) is more stable and cuts through chop a bit better. I like it better for bombing down the hill at warp speed.

I'd categorize myself as a freerider who doesn't fark around in the park, and we often get wet, heavy, choppy snow here in the PNW, so if forced to choose between the two boards I'd lean towards the Premier (but it's a very close contest).

Edit: If you plan to ride the park at all, then you might prefer the Legacy.
