i just pickedup the NS heritage. havnt rode it but all the research pointed me towards it. the 2014 r stiffer than 13.i went for the heritage because of the higher dampening but with mid flex it will soak up a lot more vibration than a legacy. heritage is built with better materials also. legacy is more a park board with good pop, but if pop is what u want then go for the proto 2014. if i had a xtra 500 layin around i would get that one to.
