|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?|

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

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

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

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?

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.

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
