NS Premier vs. Heritage vs. SL

So, my original post was asking just about the Premier..."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."

Someone mentioned the Heritage as a possibility and it looks like a great board, problem is finding one.My local shop has one SL left in stock and have a offered a decent enough deal on it.So, based on what is stated above would the SL compare at all to the Heritage?I know it would be a bit softer but that isn't too big a concern.

You and I sound fairly similar...I'm 5'10" and 225lbs, 10.5 boot, been riding since 1987 and live and ride on the east coast. I won't be getting into any boarder cross but like to hit the 20-30 footers and occasionally stray into the park with my son and do some boxes (no rails just yet). I was riding a Lib Tech T.Rice 157 and found it to be too short...in looking for a new board I wound up with a NS Heritage 162 and am really quite happy with it. Great at speed, holds an edge well, easy to ride switch, more playful than the T.Rice (softer and maybe more rocker). I think it would be a good choice as your quiver. I got mine at Evo.com and they still have them but I'm not sure about the shipping to Canada issue I'm sure you will (and regularly do) face.

Thanks for the input, yeah finding a Heritage looks to be the hurdle.I could do a private sale if I could find a used one but I am fairly certain that dealers are not allowed to sell into Canada and the local shop and our on-line shops don't seem to have any left.That is why I am wondering about the SL 158 or Premier in 163 as they seem to be available and for a decent price.

A little bump for the west coaters and night owls.

The Heritage sounds like it would suit you best, but if you can't find one and that SL is a screaming deal...

Not the best deal, actually the priciest of the 3 but it does have the fact I can actually buy it weighing heavily in its favour.
