The boards are identical in shape but the laminates are different (Core and topsheet). That changes response and feel - a little.

Bamboo veneer in the topsheet vs mixed wood inlay veneer - is there a difference? Possibly you will feel a bit more liveliness from the Bamboo but...

Both have a poplar core with bamboo stringers. The Coda has the stringers at the edges while the Element has the stringers at the midline. This can have a subtle effect on edging vs pop, but it is very subtle.

This is primarliy an issue of styling.
