About those set backs.....

I normally ride the Heritage the way it's supposed to be set up. On big park days tho, I will move my front binding forward a slight bit. A widened stance with a twin tip feeling board makes awesome park sessions. With a -2 degree base bevel, It slays rails and boxes with confidence. Jumps are om nom nom.

When I am in the mood to lay down carves and slay pow, I set the bindings back up normally.


Call me crazy but that's how I jimmy rigged my NS heritage and I enjoy it.

Busted out my 2011 Heritage for the first time yesterday on a bluebird day at Baker. After riding my softer rock board the last 2x out, it took a few runs to readjust to a stiffer board, which I prefer. From there on it was an amazing ride. Super damp, railed through moguls, cut through chop like it wasn't there, and great edge hold. Last year I had an Evo, SL-R, and Heritage too, but this one just kills it. It's def stiff, so you can forget about presses or buttering. It does seem to have more pop than last year's Heritage though. Wish I had a chance to hold both year's side by side to see the weight difference. I was expecting it to be lighter, but it feels about the same as last year's. No big deal.

I want to reiterate that people need to not jump on the Heritage bandwagon. It's a stiff board for ripping, and I suspect that it's not the right board for more than a few peeps that hopped on. They would be better off on the versatile SL, if sticking with the NS line.

Oh man I as Sooooooo close to pulling the trigger on this board right now. I finally got to see one in person at my local shop and I was acutally surprised how NOT stiff it was. I kept hearing everyone talking about the stiffness of this board I had it in my head that it would be a plank. But its not, it has a nice smooth mid/stiff flex to it. Right now Im in a sierrascope and Love the soft flex of that board and the FK tech is perfect but I dont know how it would handle powder since we got ZERO in VT last year. So for me this would be my powder, chop, out west trip board. But for the big price tag I just dont know if its worth the board, espically since Ive never ridden NS rc tech before. Has anyone ridden both capitas FK boards and NS rc boards and can comment on how the reverse cambers compare.
Thanks

Thanks for the review Triple, I am waiting to take the 11 Heritage on its maiden run. However, after riding a reg cambered 06 Heritage for the last 4 years I can certainly agree that it is a stiff board, and that it certainly seems to have become a popular board this year as well. I think a lot of folks are going to be surprised if they are coming off of other brands and expect this Heritage to be "playful" In my experience NS stiffness rating of 5 is about an 9 on most other brands.

Also, there simply is no comparison to a Sierrascope and the Heritage. I have a 156 Sierrascope FK and it is just in a different realm of reality than the Heritage, completely different boards. My older Heritage is about 300% stiffer than the Sierrascope, at least. I use the Sierrascope FK as my guest or learner board as it is pretty easy to just hop on and ride whereas the Heritage definitely has to be "driven" or it will not reward. You can't really get lazy with it at all. I leave the Capita at home when I go West, seriously I would be scared to ride that board the way I do my Heritage.

Definitely there is no question that they are totally different boards, the scope is a noodle compared to the heritage. What I was asking was about how capitas Flat Kick reverse camber compares to never summers form of reverse camber. Im really digging capitas flat kick tech, if there was a middle ground between the indoor survival FK and the charlie slasher FK which is a strickly pow board I would be interested but since there is not im gearing towards the heritage. But like I said I was curious about how their two types of reverse camber compare to eachother.

I can't compare RC with FK as I will ride NS R/C tech for the first time the second week of December either at Wolf Creek or Loveland, depending on where my business trip ends. The Sierrascope is a noodle like you said, but as you know that is what it is suppose to be. Personally I am hoping that RC is a bit different than FK as I didn't like the FK as much as I thought I would coming from reg camber, but reg camber is all I have really known for the last 18 years. If no one else chimes in before I get back I'll let you know how it goes compared to FK.
