Default Never summer legacy r vs sl r

Hey I was wondering what the differences between the boards were besides width. I am 190 lbs size 12 boots. I ride everything steeps chutes trees but I am thinking on hitting bigger like backcountry style jumps and I am not really into the park. I want to learn better spins too. Which one would you recommend.

Thanks
-Kyle

What length did you go for? I'm roughly the same size and tossing up between the 159 and 161 legacy.

I'm very, very close to buying the legacy r too, and am wondering about what length to go with. I'm 6'4", 210 lbs, and I'm now looking to improve on my spins. Any recommendations?

Snap!, I'm looking at both the SLr and the Legacy and too am 6ft4 and weigh approx 196 lbs (skinny bastard). I have UK size 11.5 salomon boots so really wanted to know which was my best bet? Did you choose what to go for?
I may go for the Legacy 166 for allround groomers, pow, natural hits and the odd kicker in a park.

Let me know what you went for.

Only get a wide board if you need to! I wear an 11 and don't ride a wide!

Well hopefully I can fit into the SLR. I currently ride a 9 year old Burton Canyon (168)so have no idea how a new board feels or rides so just gonna take a punt and learn to appreciate the difference. Does anyone know the stiffness rating of a canyon so I can compare it?
