Wait, you like the Merc (Flow) so you're wondering about the Evo (never summer?)
Or do you mean Era?
Verve is softer than the Era, and the Era is not all that soft if you're looking for something super easy to press. No experience on the Verve though.
I've only ridden the Era a couple of times but it's a fun board. And you can find it cheap.
Thanks for the input.
I did mean the Era. I updated that post to fix that mix up.
