Heritage is going to be too much board for sure.

Seriously? I love mine. I would think not the SL but maybe the CT Proto instead.

Why is the Heritage too much board in your estimation?

I think the freestyle part of the Heritage is a bit of a misnomer. It can rip most jumps and that but it more a hard charger. As far as rails and presses/butters go while possible it is a lot of work. For that reason I don't see the Heritage as a do it all all mountain freestyle board but more a flat out steep line and jump board. This is just my opinion though, I am sure the Heritage can be that board for other people. But like you said, the Proto and I still think the SL would be the NS boards more suited to do it all.

Even though the heritage may be listed as a freestyle board, I did not feel that way. I would take the SL/Proto all day over it for all mountain/freestyle.




EDIT: Sudden beat me to it.

Nivek, I love Lib Tech but would hardly consider myself a fan boy. I have a Capita Ultrafear, Yes Optimistic, and a T Rice. Every Lib I have ridden does what I like in terms of dampening and edge to edge quickness. I also really like C2.

If you hate their marketing, fine. But they make good boards. I'm not partial. I've stated millions of times, I'm trying to find something I like better than my T Rice. Haven't found it yet. Have also stated I didn't enjoy the TRS or Attack Banana.

Look forward to trying a signal. But have to say, if it's anything like the Joystick or Hero, I'll dislike it...

They wont be, those are both center revverse, which Signal doesnt do.
