Default NS Heritage - Is it worth the extra $$$ to go for the 2011?

Hi! After weeks of research and reading reviews I'm pretty set on buying a Never Summer Heritage for this year. I just came across a brand new last years model for what would be about $300 less than buying this years model. I like everything I've read about the new model regarding what they have changed but will it really make a noticeable differance worth the extra $$$? Looking at the 160cm, I'm 6'-0", 190lbs, sz 10.5 boot, love steep deep powder, dodging trees and love to jump and spin (almost no park as I don't have them close to me). Open to any input about board choice, size and whatever. Thanks in advance for the input! ...Darren

Where can you get a new 2010 Heritage for under $250?

I'd jump on that deal in a minute if true.

It's not that huge of a difference, no. That said, I sold my 10 Heritage and got the 11 model, but that's just me. For that much of a difference in price, and NS and RC tech being new to you, I say go for last year's. Some guy in the classifieds on here is selling a brand new 160 for $380.

the '10 board is a used (but not used) private sale and the '11 is in the board shop. Canadian prices are jacked up (even tho our dollar is almost the same value) and we get uber taxed. Thats where the $300 difference comes from.

$300 is definitely a big difference. If it was $100-$200, I would say might as well get the newest gear, but thats a huge price difference. Go for the '10, the '11 is better but not $300 better over the '10.

Depends on how long you plan to keep it...

The carbonium will be the future of NS sticks and the boards without it will see a drop in resale value I think..
