Need help on deciding on a wide board

I'm 6'1 195lbs size 14 boot. Been riding an 09 167 Burton Custom and am looking to get a new board. I demo a 163 NS Heritage X today and really liked it. Was wondering If I should demo something else tomorrow as I'm looking to buy after riding tomorrow. They had a skunk ape and a custom flying V but I'm not really interested in the flying V as from what I've researched it seems to be a step down from what I already have. I'm tempted to demo the skunk tomorrow and maybe try the 159 Heritage X as well for comparison. Any other big footed boarders have any suggestions or experience with these boards.

Re: Need help on deciding on a wide board

I would definitely demo the skunk ape as well. No reason not to. Take advantage of the fact that you get a chance to ride and compare different brands before making a decision.
