Hi folks, I am at a crossroads and maybe the community here can help me make a choice...I am a proud rider of a Prior Khyber 165cm split with AT boots and Dynafit conversion. I love this board. I love the directional shape and set-back and typically ride a narrow stance for my 5'11", 190lb frame. But alas, I've been bitten by the snowkiting bug and my current setup is hairy-scary in reverse.
I am looking for a more symmetrical board that I will set up with a duck stance configuration and learn to turn on. I was eyeing up the Prior AMF split as it fits the profile, but I am torn between the 162 and 165. My total weight is up to 205-210lb with pack on.
Then, I come across the Never Summer Heritage Split. It looks like a sweet board, but I know too little. On limited reading, I gather that it is super stiff with very aggressive sidecut.
Any thoughts on a comparison between these two boards? Are they even comparable?
