Is the difference in the dampening really noticeable? Also the biggest size is a 165. I'm 6ft 250 will that be big enough for me?

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
Thats whats up , They are now on my list of new shops to hit up

Thinking the same thing... I was going to pick up a Legacy 166 for this season but the more I keep reading about the heritage the more I'm leaning towards this deck for next season. The rep from NS told me they softened up the Legacy a bit for this season so I asked him a follow up comparo question between that and the Heritage, just waiting for his response on that. I'm about the same stats as you and I'm pretty sure the 165 will be fine. I'm on a 168 Rome Flag right now that's a fast, hard charger but I want something more playful that can still charge which is why I was leaning Legacy. As far as the size goes from what I've been told you can go a bit shorter on their RC boards than you would on a standard camber and I know that's the case for other Reverse Camber boards as I've gotten on a couple of the BTX boards from GNU/Lib the last couple of years in the 163/164 range and they felt like they were riding longer than that size.

Thanks for the info. You described my riding to a "t". Heard NS on heavier side. Nice to hear they lightened up heritage a little w/ their new core. Is this the reason you like it more than f1? I like that you can go switch pretty easy on heritage vs. raptor or f1.
Any other info on why I should buy this board would be greatly appreciated.

question

I have a question about how long these Never Summer boards are. I'm 5'9" and 145lbs and the longest board I've ever ridden was 155. I'm definitely interested in a heritage or a titan but they really don't seem to have boards in my size. I understand that the all mountain boards are supposed to run long, but I thought I was already stretching with a 155.

What do you guys think? Is this heritage board outside of my size? Is there a smaller alternative to these?

The SL is a super fun board and though they call it a freestyle board, I would take that thing all mountain. It's a great ride.

The Titan is gone btw, it's being replaced by the Raptor, which I also believe is offered in sizes larger than what you want.

My bad, I meant the raptor. And yeah, it's the same deal with it being too large for me. I'll have to look into the SL, thanks.

Just got my 158 this Tuedsay and planning on taking it out this Saturday (still got 4-5 feet down here in Australia). What is the setback on the 158 Heritage, I am in the process of setting up my bindings and I will be using my 09 K2 Auto on for now also got a pair of 10 Autos but they are on my Nitro Rook which i am still using for everything else the Heritage won't do(within reason).
As far as binding looking at the Rome Targas or even the 390 Boss but I have been stoked and spoilt on the speed of the K2 Autos these past two seasons. recommendations would be welcome.

Edit: found setback its 0.5", rode the board review on its way.
