Is the SL-R tail stiffer than the tip

Ok I've heard varying responses to this question and I was curious if anyone knows for certain. I know the SL-R is a directional twin but my understanding is that other than the inserts being set back an inch or so that the board is essentially a twin. Also I know that most directional twins are definitely stiffer at the rear of the board. After having ridden the board this past week I definitely feel like the tail is noticeably stiffer than the tip. I wrote a message to the info email at NS but still no response after 2 days.

What bothers me most is that the guy at the shop told me the stiffness on each end was the same since they were out of EVO-R's which is a true twin :-/

Anyone got answers?
