My thinking with gear is that I use it alot, same thinking as the rubber on my tires (having a summer and winter set), so I may as well get a couple sets of everything in order to ease up on the wear and tear.
My Proto has almost 100 days on it and is super beat down, several core shots and the bottom and edges are just shredded. As such I needed a second board just to take the pressure off the Proto so it can spend some time not getting beat up and maybe even getting fixed. So I got an Evo. Now I realize I need another Proto, because it just slays all the gnar so hard, so early next year I will probably be replacing the shredded Betty with a new HD version.
