Don't know much about that board haven't looking into it yet but he tried to sell me an Evo, I told him I'll never ever go into a park... So since I decided to try something different legacy it was, apparently the F1 and Raptor are very similar... Dummy?? Lol
You better have big feet: The Legacy is a (mid-)wide version of the SL. It is actually quite a bit wider than your F1. Otherwise not a bad choice, but the Evo would not have been bad either - it is far more than just a park board. In fact, Evo is probably best for tree runs.

At least the bit about the F1 and the Raptor being similar is correct.

Why do you think 17 people died at keystone last year when there wasnt even enough snow to open terrain that would interest experts?

You can tell who the noobs are by how fucking stupid fast they are going.

Probably stick with the stiffer bindings - you will need all the help you can get to put pressure on that edge...

1cm width can make a big difference in edge pressure and edge-to-edge quickness. Honestly, with size 10.5 feet you could (and probably should) have just gone with the regular SL.
