Default NS Heritage??

Howdy. My first post, have enjoyed browsing around.

A little background, started riding in '93 (man, I'm getting old)so I know my way around the hill. Early riding was in North Carolina, moved to CO for a while, lived in Winter Park so I rode there and at Berthoud when it was still lift access, man do I miss that. Haven't ridden much since returning to NC hardpack and ice in 2002. Would like to get back into it. I'm riding a 2001 Never Summer Wide 163 (I think that's the right name) and it is a good board, very solid and damp ride, which I like. However, I would like to try some new tech.

I am interested in the Heritage and Raptor (I am mainly just riding groomers on hardpack, not too much park stuff these days). Also, wonder if the magna-traction (sp?)is something to check out. Basically, I want a solid, stable board for making nice turns . . . and I don't want to drop a ton of cash on it.

Are there other boards that ride as solid as the Never Summers? That could be had for less?

Oh yeah, I'm 6'3" and 220ish. Any suggestions are appreciated. Any chances I can pick up a Heritage on the cheap at the end of the season?

Id also look at a Smokin KT-22. It is pretty similar to the Heritige. Similar rocker profile and more likely to have an end of season deal. Smokin also has Magentraction. Slightly mellower magnetraction than the Lib-tech so its a little more forgiving. Smokin also uses the most solid base of any board Ive ridden. Just about indestructible.

Pretty much 0 chance of picking up a Heritage for cheap at anytime for a new one.... It's at the top of the stick food chain and made in limited quantities. I havn't looked, but you may already have a hard time finding one right now ) =

Magnetraction is a joke for everything except for ice as far as I'm concerned. Some people love it, I feel like you're riding on a train track
