Never Summer Evo or SL
Hey everyone, I'm pretty sure I' gonna buy an NS board this year. Probably gonna grab them at sale season (broke after buying season pass =(). Luckily here in Vancouver, not many people know about NS so the local shop will have a lot left in stock hopefully. I'm 5'5" 150lbs, may gain around 5 lbs more from lifting size 10 burton boots. I ride mostly blue groomers and some steep when the pow comes at Whistler. Going to start learning small jumps, 180s and 360s this season. I was torn between the Evo and SL.
Evo: heard some mix things about the flex. Some say its similar to SL but less damp and little bit torsionally softer. Some say its really soft.
SL: great for all mountain, some say its a medium stiff board.
I'm looking for an all mountain board that has good edge hold and carves well. First instinct told me to go SL but the Evo seems so much fun. Especially after seeing many of the guys on the team rip on the evo in the team movie. Size wise I was thinking 155. Leaning towards 155 so when powder day come at Whistler it will hold its own. I asked Vince and he said to go for the Evo, I just want to get some more opinions before I make my decision. Thanks.
