Nitro Team Gullwing vs NS Evo/Revolver

Are these two boards comparable? Anyone have experience riding these decks? Both decks seem to have been rewarded with high praise in reviews and literature..

Yes these boards are comparable. The team gullwing is slightly stiffer torsionally than the evo. The revolver is much wider than the other two boards. The NS boards are hand made in Colorado with the best materials available. I hope you buy from a quality small producer in the U.S. rather than from an off shore factory that copied the NS design.

Both companies released alternative camber boards in 08-09 season. rocker camber and gullwing. So your words are bullshit. And Nitro is manufactured in Austria where its headquarters and prime consumers are. Where they rival Burton.Its not their fault theyve grown enough to spill over to the US. Its something to offer an opinion but no need to dirty it up with slandering an otherwise stainless company. cuz thas juss plain ignant.....

Not to mention that the camber profiles are slightly different. NS is positive camber from inserts to tip/tail while gullwing is positive camber under inserts

Also the team Gullwing is more comparable to the Proto than the Evo.

Not a stolen design either. Same season debut and the camber is less in the tips in Gullwwing. Only enough to level out the tips from the rocker. NS actually cambers back down.

How does this change the ride characteristics between the two boards. In other words what does camber from the inserts do vs camber under the inserts?

For the record Nitro's gullwing was in shops early/fall 2009 whereas Never Summer's Rocker/Camber Evo-R, Revolver-R, Legacy, SL-R and Infiity-R were in stores August 2008.

I was riding a Never Summer SLR in the Spring of 2008. I had a shop at the time and re-wrote my order after riding the board and was selling all five models later that Summer.

Having the camber directly underfoot like Nitro's Gullwing design feels more like a traditional cambered board because it's always pressured. While having the camber extended from the inserts to the tip and tail is more forgiving when flat basing and reduces drag, but provides the edge hold when you need it when the camber is pressed down in a carve. Rocker under the inserts gives you the benefit of a rocker design which is a surfy forgiving ride and incredible floatation in powder. Having the camber extended from the inserts out toward the tail enables a rider to really load up the tail for more spring/pop.

I bought my SubPop late December 2008
