Default Neversummer SL-R or Evo-R

Which one has more flex? NS site rates the SL-R as 5 and the Evo as 6 (higher being stiffer) but I read somewhere on the forum that the Evo is actually more flexible.
I rode a skate banana last year ant it was a lot of fun to play around. Not very stable when it comes to high speed though.
So Iím looking for a board that will be fun to play with (presses, butters, etc) but still have decent stability when riding it fast. Would the Evo or SL-R do?
What size will work for me? Iím 5í10 / 165 lbs. 151 may be?

That apparently was a misprint in the cataloge and on the site. If I had legit hills to go to i'd get the sl-r, if it's just crappy hills and parks, i'd go evo-r. What board size do you have now? Would you like ot go bigger or smaller?



edit- ALOT of peeps are looking into the n.s. thing this year. It's making me scared if i'll be able to get the revolver 153.

Misprint meaning that the Evo has more flex to it?
Currently I have a 148 banana which feels kind of short but it’s easy to spin and a 154 K2 believer which is really nice for carving and fast riding but feels more “heavy” when spinning. So I’m thinking 151 might be just right.

The hill I’m riding here is really small (30-40 sec straight down). That’s why I’m looking for a board to goof around. I’ll keep the believer just in case I get a chance to ride a bigger hill/mountain.

You’re right on the NS boards. I’ve never read/heard anyone complains from a NS board and people are showing more and more interest. There are still few last year Evo boards online and the price is not bad at all.

yes the evo has more flew then the sl. the sl is basically a stiffer version of the evo. i own the evo-r from last year and it was an amazing board. handled the park awesome and i took it everywhere else on the mtn with no problems. i think youll be happy with it if you decide to buy one.

Does anybody know if the circuit is supposed to be more flexy than the Evo? They're rated both at 4 this year.

Circuit R is their price point jib stick it's a lot softer than the Evo. It has 3 layers of fiberglass compared to 5 and a different core profiling.
