Default Help picking a new board

I'm having trouble deciding what board I want to get for the up coming season and was just looking for some opinions. I definetly want to get an NS but dont know which one. I'm 6'3 200lbs and am looking for a board all mountain but hitting the park some as well. I was looking at the Heritage and thought that's what i wanted but now I'm having second thoughts and am thinking a Legacy or Revolver. Can anyone that has experience with these boards give me some tips to help me make a decision? Also what bindings do you think I should couple with the board? i was thinking Union Forces or Ride SPI's. thanks yall-

What boot size ya got? you'd probably be better off with a heritage or Legacy. the legacy tends to be a bit more stiff than the SL, and at your weight that probably isn't a bad idea. I've ridden a revolver for the past two seasons but it's definitely more park oriented. Rome Targas would be a good choice to match up as well.

I wear a 13 but have F22's so the print is a little smaller. I know regardless of which board I get it will have to be a wide. I'm thinking a legacy is probably my best bet. . decisions decisions :P anyone tried out the new Libs and GNU's with C2?

the Skunk Ape is sick, especially for a guy your size. So is the dark series.

Think a 159 is too small of a board? I figured anything over 26 at the waist and I SHOULD be ok :/

You should be fine. if it's for strictly freeride i would go a bit bigger.

Hey Skatebannana, have you ridden a c2btx board? If you have how would you compare it to just a plain btx board?
