Default Re: REVIEW; Neversummer Raptor 156

Apologies for the semi-thread jack, but was looking to get the 2013 Raptor as my freeride stick. Currently have a 153 NS SL and was looking to get a 156 Raptor. I was pretty much set on getting this year's version, but hearing how next year's version was stiffer and damper, I'm debating now. So I have two questions...

1) For anyone that has had an opportunity to ride both, is there a noticeable difference, particularly in regards to carving fast, between the Raptor and the SL to justify the cost?

2) For anyone that has, or will have, an opportunity to ride a 2014 Raptor, and has also had an opportunity to ride a past years version (doesn't have to be 2013), could you comment on the differences. I know that the numbers say, but I'm just curious if there's actually a difference when riding the board.

My stats...

5'7" 150 7.5 boot
