NS Legacy Vs. Lib Tech Banana Magic BTX HP Wide

I'm 6'4" 215# size 14 boot.

I actually currently own the NS Legacy 166. Based on information i've gathered lurking on the forum, it seems that the 166 might actually be a bit big for me. I've been looking for an all mountain twin and the LT Banana Magic BTX HP 162 Wide looks bad ass. I just want to know if i'm really going to notice that much of a difference between the two boards. I don't want to spend that much money if both boards are going to ride about the same.

Also the Banana Magic is 1/2 cm more narrow than the NS, is this going to make a notable difference?

Thanks in advance guys.

Must be quite an old Banana magic if it still has BTX (as opposed to the Enhanced BTX/!BTX! that it has had for a few years now).
Either way, the Magic rides considerably different from the Legacy. Much more playful, but also less stable and more squirelly. The narrower waist will contribute to this.

Really depends on your type of riding and conditions which board is better for you...
