I gotta say, after buying a ton of stuff online, these snowboard ships which i have never heard of ship very quickly. First emage, now acmeclimbing. Within an hour I have a ship notification. That is fast!

Welp, I just did it. Westmark ordered, for a very good price.
I'm such a gear head (in everything I do, photography, computers, TV, anything). Now I need to unload a 2011 Never Summer SL 151, white topsheet, excellent condition in the buy sell forum (or locally)

|L3mnhead||I think the micro camber on the Heritage does help spring or power you through the turn. The Coda's no slouch though. The hybrid bamboo core really has a lot of snap to it. They have a different feel about them, but they both get the job done.|

L3mnhead, thanks for the feedback dude. Diff boards...but its good feedback on the tech itself (RC vs system).
Bite is one thing...i never doubted arbor's mountain system to not have bite...its more the "spring load" feel you get from laying a carve down with a positive camber board...u know what I mean? You initiate the turn and when you locked in you allow the posi camber to push you through (bad explaination)....i dunno if i make any sense...
Did you find the micro cambers in the heritage to help with that?

I'm in a very similar circumstance to the OP...and im trying to decide between these 2 boards as well. Want to be able to bomb down with friends...but still be able to butter and play around when i get board (love east coast *sarcasm*). I'm even lighter than the OP...125...so my 151 custom posi camber is stiff for me. After reading responses...looks like I need to learn a better technique as well:P
In regards to the boards tho...I was all but going to pull the trigger on the westmark cause its centre reverse (good for buttering), has griptech (good for east coast ice) and reading reviews has good pop and decent damping (not dampening :P). However, I still love to carve...and unlike the evo which has micro-cambers...the westmark is just a full reverse...so I dunno how it feels when you lay into a carve. Nothng will beat a full positive for that...but a nice compromise would be nice

|rgrwilco||You cant just pull and push and expect to press/butter/whatever. You need to throw your weight into it. Trust me, you throw your weight into either the nose or tail and the board will lock into it. Its freaking reverse camber, come on man.|
