NS Legacy 165W Review

I took the board out for its day on the snow. There was not much powder to get a super detailed report on how it would handle in super deep powder. the was five or so inches of new in spots, the board floated like a dream. This was my first experience on a NS R.C. board. On the groomers the board also held its own, because of the R.C. between your feet and the normal camber outside it carved and handle exactly like a normal cambered board would. Over all impressions of the board were fantastic. I would highly recommend this board to anyone. The board has an extremely fast base, because of its base it also sucks up the wax. As for the park this board just doesn't belong there. It handles jumps OK but the tail does seem to want to washout form underneath you sometimes. But if you plan to ride the steep and deep along with some cruising of the groomers this board is a must. The tail has good pop, and the board is very quick edge to edge. The board was paired with 09 Rome 390's.

Thanks for the review, what you describe is very similiar to the experience I had a few weeks ago when I took my Legacy-R out. I really thought the RC was going to have a big learning curve but it seemed rather easy to pick-up (probably since it's only between your feet like you said). I'm hopping to take it out in some POW soon to see what the RC can really do. Interesting about the speed of the board, I put speed paste on mine before taking it out and figured that was why it was so damn quick. Sounds like the simple wax will do just fine.

How do you like the 390s paired with the board? I was thinking about getting them but I have read that they are more freestyle oriented and the Legacy isn't made for that. I was also considering Union Force SL's. I have the same board (Legacy-R 166). Do you have a pic of the bindings on the board?

390's. . . . .

yeah i had the same thought about putting the freestyle bindings on a free ride board. But to be honest i loved them. they had great feel but also gave me the stiffness that e prefure when riding the all mountain boards. Not at this time but i can get some if you'd like.

What color did you go with? I'm wondering how they look on the board. If its not too much trouble then snap a pic or two, but if you can't then that's cool too.
