Ihave a chance of picking a cheap raptor...

I have a SL.. do you think are good to have both or much similar?


Or should i get a heritage as a more stiff board but not as specific terrain as the raptor?

thanks

what board would be a better match to have along the SL? the her
itage might be too similar?

Thanks for the reviews. I'm dying to try the Cobra from all the hype I've read about.

Personally I would pick up the Raptor. The Heritage is a different/stiffer board to the SL but it is reasonably similar in shape and powder performance. The Raptor is completely different being a stiff powder/carving board. It would compliment a quiver much better, especially if youre looking for a powder board.

The Heritage would be a better choice if you want a stiffer one board quiver.

Great reviews -- thanks.

I don't get as much time on snow as I would like so a "quiver" isn't really my priority. I took on a Proto CT last weekend in spring conditions (ice/corn/machine groomed) and fell in love. For the kind of riding I do (groomers almost exclusively) I'd like your opinion on the Proto being a one-board quiver.

I haven't gotten a chance to ride an SL but the impression I get from all the posts I've been reading is that the SL is a higher speed, more carving oriented board (than the Proto).

I used to dislike the gfx and the fact that 6 guys on the lift have it, but now with over 30 days on it, I could give a fuck, my proto is the titties.
