Default Arbor Draft Vs Never Summer Evo.

So, I've ridden the Evo and totally adored it. Are these two boards very similar? I've heard less than positive things about the bronze edges on the Draft.... But it's a lot cheaper. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

Cheers

i have both and they are not similar at all
evo is way stiffer and can use as all mountain in a jiffy
draft is pretty soft and i wouldn't take it to a big mountain

Cheers for response Merv!

Hehe, I thought the Evo was well noodly compared to my Skate Banana. Is the Arbor Draft a good board then? I know that the Evo can be ridden all over. But i loved it for buttering and pressing. Is the arbor better for ground tricks and that? Do you ride both? Sorry about all the questions I just want to see if it would be worth owning both. Cause if i got the Draft now I would probably still get the evo and I don't have a lot of money to be blowing on boards!! Basically should I get both or just the Evo??

The Draft is a good job board. But thats about all its good at. If you want a capable park board for cheap look for a 2011 Salomon Drift rocker or a Flow Verve or Era.

The exact thing I want to do with this board is

THIS - ‪SNOW BOARD GROUND TRICK (?????MOVIE 09--10 TRUST6MEDIA (MASTER OF GROUND#02)(MAGIC BOARD)‬‏ - YouTube

That's not to say I will be able to do even a 20th of what they can but at least start learning to do it. I have a Skate Banana and a Proto CT - I love both boards I guess if i had to categorise - Proto -Jumping and carving SB - jibbing jumping and icy days and then the draft/evo for super buttering and pressing. ..... sound about right??

If you've already got a Proto and Nanner get the Draft. Its a super fun board.

Probably not. I always want new boards. Like always.
