The choices we must face!
For those that have ridden both of those babies.
How large is the actual difference?
Currently I'm trying to decide what to get from the following list, I'm 185 cm (that's 6'1") and 90-95 kg
Neversummer Titan 2010 (160), £415
Neversummer premier F1 (161 or 163), £480
Atomic Banger (161 or 164), £350
Neversummer Raptor (164), £540
Now, the Banger is obviously a great deal cheaper than the rest of them, but from what I read it shakes worse than a drug dealer that has run out of heroin, whenever you hit high speed on groomers, and since I have to ride with a bunch of very fast skiers, I'm not sure that I'll be happy about that one.
As one can probably guess from the list, I'm not fond of the park, and essentially doesn't go there.
I know that the change from titan to raptor (introducing R.C. and shedding a bit of weight) is worth some money, but not sure if it's worth quite that much.
The last option is a premier F1, which has gotten fairly shiny reviews as well.
But since trying them out before buying is not a option (I'm living in a bloody flat country!) I'm wondering if anyone has tried all four of them? And has any comments on the price difference?
I'm somewhat leaning towards the premier, but the raptor seems to be the favourite by people that have tried both, and when I'm spending that much money, £50 something isn't going to make the difference.
