jerjabs Milo, at one time you were a big Bataleon guy...I demoed Bataleons,NS & banana these last few months. I found that the TBT was, IMO better and all the new "reverse camber" boards that are trying to catch up with Bataleon. Why did you stop pimping Bataleons?

Milo303 You won't find Never Summers on sale very often at all. They always sell out...

And the Legacy is a wide and the Heritage XR is a wide as well.

Read the waist widths

iturner82 That's great. I looked into them, and the Legacy and the SL-R caught my eyes. They're on the uppermost spectrum of my price range, but with summer sales, the prices isn't an issue.

What is an issue however is the size, I didn't see a wide available, and with my size 14 boots, I obviously don't want my toes hanging off ;P

Milo303 Never Summer boards imo are the best built boards on the market, and one of the only boards with a 3 year warranty.

NS builds tanks

iturner82 My local mountain closed today, so unless I can head up to Mammoth for a weekend, my season's over, so I basically got all summer to choose.

Are Never Summer boards known for their reliability like K2 boards are?

Milo303 I really didn't enjoy the 2010 Legacy... But the 2011 Heritage is phenomenal

Snowfox NeverSummer Heritage would probably be a safe bet. There's also the Legacy-R (wide version of the SL-R) that will be a bit of a softer all-mountain board.

Another choice would be a k2 darkstar. It's a park board, but from the reviews I read it's more designed to use the entire mountain as a park, rather than just the actual park itself. The Angry Snowboarder Blog Archive K2 Darkstar with Ever Bindings A Closer Look
Next year it'll have flatline (read 0 camber) tech. Right now it has camber.

Milo303 Never Summer Heritage XR and it's worth the price tag.

I've ridden the 2011 and it's phenomenal.

I'm either getting the Heritage XR or a YES! The dudes next season. I have a size 14 also and I have a feeling the YES sticks will be to narrow even with my wide stance and angles.

Here's a site with a bunch of 2011 stuff that you can view but it's not available in the U.S. yet
