Default Burton hero vs never summer evo?

hey guys i got to demo the burton hero on saturday and it was really the only park board i have ridden. I loved this board for park even though it was a 155 and i weigh 105.I would get the hero but i just got a new pair of rides and cannot afford to get another pair of bindings, so i am trying to find a board that is as similar as possible to the hero, would you guys suggest a never summer evo-r for me? I really want this board to excel in the park and be super easy to press and butter. I also want this board to be able to ride powder and be stable off jumps and landing jumps. Also, how does the hero and evo compare as far as cath-free edges because that was one thing that i really liked about the hero.

personally I would go with the evo. It has the rocker camber tech that is forgiving with those landings. catch free. It also provide float on powder, high speed stability, and a pretty good pop. this board does excel in the park and I believe that neversummer has a 3 year warranty on the boards.

he is a lightweight though, reckon the evo will be too stiff for him since he wants easy butters etc?

I know for a fact it is if you want a NS that rides like a Hero go with the Circuit R.
