Second board to add to my quiver

So I have a 2010 evo-r 155 and absolutely love it. If I were to get a second board to shred all over the mountain what should I get to balance my park evo-r board? I want to use it for more freeriding.

Suggestions?

get a longer EVO perhaps? Otherwise look for something a little longer and a little stiffer. Want not stay in the NS family and get a Premier?

How's the flex on the 155 evo-r? I heard the 2010 was a lot softer than the 2009 evo-r.

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.

I really like the look of the premier and I am taking a long hard look at next year's heritage...If I have a 155 Evo right now...perhaps a 158 heritage???

Ghost rider what are your stats? Should I get a premier in the same length?

i'm 5' 10" 175 lbs. riding the 159 premier. i was debating between the 159 and 161 and i'm very glad i got the 159. little bit more maneuverable in the trees and still PLENTY of stability at speed. if it was going to be my only board i may even step down to the 157 so it would be more playful, but thats whey i have a flexier, more fun board.

I am wondering if I will notice the difference between a 155 evo that I am riding now and a 159 heritage/premier in a stiffer board?

Most definitely yes, assuming the Evo-R isnt already oversized for you...

I ride a 151 SL-R which is already their mid flex board...and reviewing the new 2011 Heritage 158 and its like night and day how stable the thing is. Granted for me its a much larger board, but the Heritage isnt that much stiffer than a SL-R.

You never mentioned what you weigh? A 158 Heritage or 159 Premier might be what your looking for.

I get the feeling you'd probably like the Heritage more, only because your coming from a park background because it will still have some flex too it and what not for doing kickers/etc...

'09 151 Never Summer SL-R
'10 K2 T1 DB Bots
'09 Burton Cartel Bindings
