my 2011 ET classic bombs hills like a giant POS. i know they have changed the base to sintered and also changed the tbt this year..but is it a different board? i highly doubt the new et is damp, which you need SOME dampness if bombing hills matters.

havent ridden the other 2, the proto is going to handle hill bombing the best, the evo is going to jib the best, the ET may be a fine choice for you. after a few months on my ET i wont be using it for anything other than a rail trash street board and loaner. perhaps some of their other boards would bomb hills, but like i have said before, my ET is slow, then when i do get it going, it sucks ass: bumpy, edge catchy, unstable, chattery. also the classic camber in the ET sucks ass if you ever get in powder. the NS boards will float way better but maybe thats not an issue.

if you want a board that inspires confidence at speed it will have nothing in common with a jib board. something to consider about your number 1 and number 2 criteria. you hear words like "confidence at speed" describing boards like the lib t. rice, ride highlife, NS heritage and NS premier f1, all of which are hill bombing boards, not jib boards, not even twin.

confidence at speed is gained through a stiff, damp board. jibbing is done with a noodle that has bindings. i guess they both have bindings. similarties end there.

Thanks alot for your reply..I have no clue what the differences are between the 2011 and 2012.But I already have a skate banana,And I need something more stable on the icy steeps of the East Coast.As far as powder goes Its only a added bonus..We dont get alot of the pow here.what is your height and weight if you don't mind me asking?Also Im just trying to find the best fit I can,I know that there is no board perfect for both.
