I can't say with certainty about this year's decks, but NS boards have historically run on tad on the stiff side. I had the 08 System. It was a little stiff for the park, and a little soft for death speed runs down blacks. It was amazing everywhere else. The 08 has a slightly set-back stance (3/4 to 1 inch. I can't remember). Flex pattern is slightly directional, but still rode well going switch. If you can find a deal on the SL, check that out, too. That deck is little bit stiffer than the System and will handle speed a bit better.
