i'm in the opposite situation as you. i have a 2010 premier and i'm looking to add a park stick. probably going for an evo or circuit.
the premier is an awesome freeride board. very fast, super stable at speed, kills it in pow. plenty of pop and still enough flex to be fun. all said and done, its the best board i've owned in over 15 years. Its one of the few boards that i could feel a noticeable difference in my performance.
