Opinions on NS Premier F1?

Hey, looking at picking this board up in a 163.Currently I am riding an 05/06 Capita BSOD 162.How would the rides between the two compare?I am aware the tech has changed quite a bit as the BSOD is a straight normal camber board and I have never ridden anything but.Also, as far as flex goes are they comparable?As for my info, I am 6'1 about 225ish, 9.5 boot.Riding for 22/23 years, mainly your typical east coast groomers, steep short & icy.Some park, mainly kickers possibly some rails.Not much powder or trees unless we really get dumped on or I take it on vacation.Also possibly looking to enter some boardercross races as well.Basically looking for a one board quiver out of this.So, anyone ridden it or links to reviews etc?Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have the 163. Never been on the BSOD but I love my Premier. You have to want a damp stable ride though because that is for sure what it delivers.
Amazing edge hold, plows through anything, pretty good in pow for a non-pow specific board. I do not really like it on jumps and never hit rails (a downed tree here or there).
To me it sounds like you may want a Heritage instead for more versatility.

Thanks, the Heritage does look interesting but it is a matter of finding the same kind of deal really.
