I was looking into possibly getting a Never Summer deck in the future. I mainly just freeride on groomers. I like going fast and doing some hard carves, but i also dont want soo much edge grip that i cant pull off some short fast carves on narrow runs that i need to slide out the tail a bit. I would like something that is somewhat stiff and damp but not something that cant handle sharper turns. No park for me, and i also dont really ever ride powder. Im 5'11" 165lbs and size 11 burton boots with shrinkage tech. Any suggestions on which NS board is right for me? Thanks all
I'm the opposite. I found the heritage to be boring on groomers. Super damp and pretty stiff. I will say I was riding a 162 @180lbs though.
OP also mentioned wanting a board that can handle tight radius turns. The Cobra beats the Heritage in agility hands down. I don't think I'd ever choose a Heritage over the Cobra for tree riding for that exact reason.
Groomers is what I mainly ride. Crappy conditions most of the time too. I thoroughly enjoy the Cobra on it.
But I completely agree about powder performance. I had a chance to ride it in about a foot of snow through trees. The Cobra was in its element.
