They all look fine to me. Nothing jumps out as "now way, not gonna rock that POS" and nothing knocks my socks off either.

However, you really have to see the Carbonium boards in person because I think they look much different than the pictures.

Dreaming about a 169 Summit split and a Premiere F1, love the graphics this year too. Solid work NS.

As usual, the Heriage and Summit have the best graphics andvas usual I'm not feeling the Evo. I hate the Cobra graphics. I think it looks cheesy as hell but I love the sound of it in terms of the design.

I'm not big on graphics though. If I like the board, I'll deal with the graphics.

I wish they still made a split version of the Heritage.

Buck up and get the Summit split! That board rides amazing FYI, better than anything I have had the pleasure of riding.

Seriously though, what is the aversion to a summit split?

I like the look of the cobra too as a board, too bad the graphics are lame. Graphics wouldn't stop me from buying a board either, but given the choice I'd rather have graphics that look sweet rather than lame.

I like NS and their policy of quality production and spending less on graphics and advertising. Still I think they could have done a little more research, because people on here (I'd say a clear majority) don't like the graphics on the cobra.

I don't think it needs a big cobra on it just because its called the cobra. Maybe if the cobra was like a 5th of the size it would look better.

Maybe next year it will be solid, I won't buy a new board this next season anyway (or so I keep telling the wife ).

I wouldn't go so far as to say I have an aversion to it. I would just prefer the Heritage. Riding switch on the Summit is possible, but it kinda sucks.

pretty sure evo has some for $700 right now (this years)

this (2012) years sl split is a heritage with sl graphics. although it isnt pictured here i'm pretty sure they're making it again this year - a guy on sb.com broke his 2012 sl already and NS replaced it with next years 'SL' split... its black with red/yellow/orange... it looks good IMHO

i'm gonna get that Raptor in the 156 i think.... then next spring i'll cut it or my heritage for a nice smaller, lighter DIY split

Hasn't the "SL" split always been the Heritage with SL graphics?
