The Heritage will be similar but since the Legacy still exists it is definitely different. I rode the SL and the Heritage and came away thinking that the flex was similar, the dampening on the Heritage is much more noticeable, the Heritage is light as hell and turns on a dime.

Basically it is an upgraded SL/Legacy. Better materials and different construction methods lead to a board that is a little beefier, can handle bigger terrain and of course costs more.

Dammmnnnn I think I might have to pick up a heritage this season. never summers camber/reverse camber deal kind of reminds me of capitas Flat kick reverse camber which to me is perfect, but there all mt board "black death" only comes in regular camber. so hopefully this could be my new speed machine/powder deck because it sounds like a bad ass board and sets it over the edge with the new topsheet grafx.

Hey Tekniq33 I see you live right here in Brooklyn, did you buy your never summer boards over the internet or buy/demo from a local shop? B/c I havent seen a NS board in any shop around here. thanks

I did a demo twice at hunter last year. One early season and one late, where I rode the 10-1 stuff.

In our area Paragon sports and Blades sell NS. I actually bought an f1 from there at bed of last season at a big discount. I think homage on smith St might sell NS as well

Digging this board big-time... I've got an 04/05 Legacy that needs upgrading to alt-camber.

I prefer all-mountain riding & glades, but here in MI we dn't have any of the fun stuff so I spend a decent amount of time lapping our crappy parks, so I need a board to handle it all.

Will the heritage be as stable at fast speeds and carve as well as the Raptor?

As well, no probably not. The raptor is made specifically to do just what you described. but keep in mind you would not really want to use the Raptor in the park. the heritage will be a great solution for both. otherwise just get 2 boards

Nice review.

I agree with the 1 stop shop to do everything with this board.

That's all I kept thinking when I was demoing the same board. "Holy shit, this board can do anything" was literally my thoughts. Most well balanced stick I've ever been on, and I will be purchasing one for the 2011 season.
