The Pyro is flat, with an asymmetric shape - tighter heel side radius/sidecut.

Right off, I noticed that the occasional heelside judder and washout was pretty much eliminated with this board.

That said, I noticed that while my heel side carves are tight and clean, my toe side carves are a bit more smeared than my other boards (Rossi Angus, Never Summer Legacy). It feels like when I start to initiate my toe side turn, the board responds and gets me in the direction I want to go very quickly, before I can solidly engage the edge toe side like I do heel side (while with other boards, I'm usually better toe side than heel side).

Tips/suggestions?
