Hi,

Does anyone know if there are any major differences to the Evil Twin from last seasons?

I've got the opportunity to pick up a mint condition Evil Twin from last season & want to check that it's still a decent board even compared to the new improved model this year.

Thanks!

the nose / tail is shaped different, there are slight differences but the technology is still the same.

From what I recall, I think this year's ET is same as last years ET artist edition.

Nose and tail shape is different between artist edition from last year and the ET this year, but your point might still be true.

Aside from the blunted tips the other major difference is that this year they put a sintered base on it, which, IMHO is significant.

There are substantial diferences. The new tip/tail transitions and shape change the contact length of any given size by roughly 4 cm. That is a lot and needs to be considered when sizing.

To anybody asking for help from WiredSport, I would research carefully before putting down your money on a board. WiredSport recommended a size 152 PURE JIB board for me and I weigh 130 pounds lmao. So make sure you research before listening to this guy.

Yea, tell me about it. I was lucky that I made a new thread and most of the people recommended a 149. Other wise would have dropped 400$ on a 152 and wasted my money.
