Flow Era is cheaper, more versatile rocker/camber, a very grippy 5 radial sidecut, rolled base between the feet, sintered base, and carbon in the tips.

A little more like the SL is the Drifter from Flow. $420 full retail for 2013 and has all the same tech hits as the Era but with a stiifer core profile and is directional twin.
Checked out the era, it's indeed as affordable as it gets.

Not so sure after seeing this though:

Srry, it wouldn't inbed for some odd reason.

Pretty stiff, very heavy. But than again, other reviews describe both the era and the drifter as not stiff at all
Either way, two great contenders at a VERY good price imo.

So would you guys say a Forum Destroyer of even a Smokin Superpark isn't worth the extra bones?
