Never Summer SL-R

Is there an SL-R with a green base? I thought I saw one, but when I google online I can only find ones with black base.

Also, to SL-R owners, what do you think of it? How does it compare vs evo-r? Thanks.

What's the best price you've found for an SL-R? I was looking around for one too.

yeah im looking for a 155cm. im only 140lbs at 5'10".

i hear its more flexible than the evo-r but doesn't chatter as much as the evo-r.

does anyone know if i will be able to butter and press easily on a 155cm at 140lbs?

Yeah there is one with a neon green base and white top sheet. The main difference between the SL R and Evo R would be that the SL r has more dampening. Also the evo is a centered twin and the Sl r is directional I believe.

There are...140lbs should be riding a 151..im 135ish..probably 140ish with boots and gear and ride a 151 fine through even some deep ass powder...the board loves to float..
I have a neon green base one, they are out there but theres no way to know unless you ask the seller what they are going to send you. Some are black/black, some are white/black base others are black/green...

I absolutely love my SL-R to death and have zero regrets paying 440 for it earlier in the season, which was still a good deal when most were still at 495 MSRP...i had so much fun last night at our local skibowl..all along the left of the groomed area was a big chopped up powder area nobody was really going through..i could just cut through that crap like butter the boards so stiff in the nose. Was bouncing around in some pretty ridiculous choppy waist deep powder today at Meadows too, a few times i thought i was going to sink since i was taking it a bit slow being the first time i'd dropped into that area...never did though. In short if you can still find a SL-R in your size, buy it, you wont regret it. 3 year warranty too, which is just phenominal...they also do really good repairs i hear if something happens thats not covered in warranty(like you smash it into a rock or something)...the warranty more or less just covers defects..like delaminating or anything else if it should ever happen which i've never heard of on NS boards..built like tanks they are.

Looking around i found this, they probably only have a few left so i'd buy soon if 151 is your size.

Never used the site, but decent deal considering their so hard to find. A lot of shops are still charging MSRP because people will pay it.

I found a brand new '09 one for $320 shipped, but it sold before I had a chance

I also found a shop that has the new 2010 version for around $375 shipped. Should I get it? Damn, that's alot to spend right now because: I'm broke, it's late in the season, I already have several other boards, etc...
