Narrowing down the board selection.......

Ok, so I've narrowed it down to these 3 boards.........
1) Lib Tech T.Rice Pro 161.5
2) Never Summer Premier F1
3) Never Summer Raptor X

I'm 6'3, size 12 boot, experienced rider, chase mainly pow, but obviously want the board to perform on groomers too.

Not sure on the binding yet, but leaning toward to Rome Targa, still waiting on the new NX2 reviews to come out before making that decision.

Thanks for your help

I'd go with either premier or raptor x.
Raptor X 169 will be my choice, as it's torsionally stiff, and wide(you neeed that).
169 will give you enough float (depends on conditions and weight) and lots of a grip in a carves. Targas is a nice choice, i think. Or NX2-RS. either one.
