premier f1, raptor or burton t7 or vapor
ok guys help a brother out..lol..i am an old school rider....getting on in years haha (ok 37 isn't that old....)...i am looking for a new board and i have a few requirements...i ride mainly powder, some back country and some groomers. if i am in the park it is because i am lost, please point me in the right direction!!
looking for a board that floats well, but handles chop like a dream.....also as i age i am finding that my turn initiation is not as quick or as strong as it was when i was younger.....so some help there would be appreciated.
so out of the boards i have listed i am leaning towards the f1, however the weight (so i have heard) is an issue....anyone have an opinion on this?
also..if i go with the NS...should i get the RC? i have never ridden a rc board...not too sure if it will help or hinder my riding? i like the idea of more float in the powder but i am worried about the "squirrelyness" that i have heard about on flats/groomers....so someone set me straight. can a guy that has been riding in the mid 80's, built his first board in wood shop with winter boots screwed to the board and full sheet metal base learn to handle such a high powered board like the f1?
oh and a binding recommendation would be great too....riding the burton driverx and a flow binding now.....not loving the flow all that much...how do the toe cap style bindings compare to a flow or to the old school two strap design?
sorry for all the questions. thanks in advance.
ps. just discovered the jones flagship...so i will throw that one in the mix as well.
