Coming from the EVO, would you recommend the SL as a speed slayer? Or would you find it wiser to go to the Heritage since I already have an EVO? I know you don't have a heritage, but I'm curious if you think the SL will handle well enough at speed to be worth it?

Thanks in advance.

Edit: I ride an EVO in a 158. I'm thinking of, instead of the Heritage, doing the SL in a larger size. Extra sidecut but still a little more flexible of a board. Anyone have thoughts/comments?
The SL is smoother ride, that's for sure, however, it still gets pushed around if going fast enough. If you are keeping the Evo, step up to the Heritage or something similar. That's just my opinion. The SL is noticeably more damp than the EVO, but if you're going to have a quiver of two, go all the way and cover both ends. The Evo and Sl aren't a bad quiver. The heritage would make a much better one IMO.
