NS Heritage v Lib TRice pro

I am having a hard time deciding between these boards and can't find anyone who has ridden both these boards. I have read all I can on them. I am 43, live for powder ride the edges and hit the bumps and jumps with my three daughters. Hazzard the park for laughs. I would really like to know which one out performs the other in various terrain and conditions. Please answer only if you have ridden both or can find a review from someone who has.

I have the 2012 Trice Pro and the 2012 NS Proto CT. I will reply with a comparison of them by Sunday night; if it helps. Ive only riden the Proto so far and I like it alot.

Hopefully my review/comparison will help distinguish the difference between vario vs mtx, and rocker camber vs bananna.

I look forward to finally using my boards this week.

I had the same debate, and went with the Rice. Demoed both. Liked the way the Rice handled better. Wasn't as damp as the Heritage. But for some reason was more fun to ride. Very quick edge to edge despite being mid-wide.

thanks

That is kind of what Justin at evo said. Do you have a sense for which one would perform best on big mountain powder? Which is stiffer and by how much?

Felt the Rice was slightly stiffer. Heritage probably goes big mountain better. Rice is more freestyle oriented in the build. Blunted tips (if you are talking about the 157). Go demo. I hate telling people my preference, because my preference doesn't mean everyone will feel the same way.

The Rice is just fun. Groomers, trees, booters. The Heritage plowed through everything. Both boards are sick. You just really have to demo to see what you like better. For me, I liked the edge to edge quickness, and the freestyle feel despite the stiffness of the board. Both handled high speeds very well.
