And thanks for your help, it is very appreciated.
Yeah I mean, if you want an all mountain board get either the Jam or the Goliath. ET is a more park specific true twin. The Jam is stiffer so for jibs I'd go with the Goliath.

I emailed bataleon, saying I wanted to start heading to the park more but will still be spending most of my time all over the mountain, they said the ET would be perfect

40% off snowboard gear at Action Village. My friend was able to snatch an ET before they sold out.

Have you ever dealt with Action Village? It seems like some of their deals are almost too good to be true.

They are reputable.

Capita snowboards are no longer 40% off. It looks like only selected brands and items have the discount.

That's my take.
We got a draw heret! Lol! But if the ET is just slighty better in stability, the Evo get a better overall result, as in Pow and Butter it's way better.

I thought the ET would be way more catch free, as there's no big tech for this purpose in the Evo (I guess..)

They both reduce catchiness, just different technologies used to achieve it.

You might want to consider the Riot. It's like the ET but stiffer and with a sinistered base so it can handle speed better. The speed and stiffness will make it better for jumps and pipe, but buttering around, while still possible, will be more difficult.
