Default Board to complement NS Legacy-r???

Hey guys. Searching for some help on behalf of my husband. He currently rides - and loves- a 2010 NS Legacy-R, but he's looking to add a second board to his quiver.

He loves his Legacy for all-mountain riding. He finds it very stable, it turns on a dime, it has just enough flex to still be playful, and has good pop. However, the Legacy is a 161 and he thinks it's a bit long and heavy. He's looking for a second board to add to the quiver.

Looking for a board that:
Is a true twin
Is light and fun
Fits his size 11 feet
Is soft-ish, but stiff enough to handle his size and power
Is able to handle some jumps and is stable at decent speeds.

He also doesn't want to spend a lot of money - he really just wants a smaller, fun board to mess around with.

Stats:
Weight: varies, from 190-210, very athletic
Height: 6'3"
Style: freeride, jumps, powder, trees
Level: advanced freeride, intermediate jumps
Shoe size: 11

For some reason, the Gnu Carbon Credit caught his attention. We're also looking at Capita boards. Probably want to avoid another NS due to weight.

Any suggestions?

Gah...husband got impatient, went to a board shop tonight and came home with a Gnu Riders Choice. I know it's a nice board, but is it different enough from the Legacy?

The GNU RC is going to be fairly same as far as flex and intended use as the Legacy.. At size 11 he probably doesnt need a wide board. What kind/sze boots and bindings? If he wanted a NS that wasn't "heavy" I would check out the Evo or Circuit. I rode a 155/158 Evo with 11 Northwave boots and it fit fine. There are lot's of good options out there for a fun board!

He picked up a 157.5 Riders Choice so he could play with the smaller size. He rides Union Contacts and Burton Ions.
