Should I sell the Evo?
Just got back from Tignes.
I'm a hair under 5'11" and a hair over 180lbs (just for reference). When abroad, I love riding off of the pistes and freestyling about and generally seem to find new ways to tear my base apart. But am basically everywhere but the park (that is, until I'm in the domes where I mainly hit the kickers and rails and boxes all day long)
Rode for 6 full days, 5 on the Proto 157 and 1 on the Evo 154.
Firstly, FUCK I LOVE THAT PROTO!!!! That said, I didn't find the boards to be very different at all. I'm sure you'll all jump up and tell me that's mental but I'm finding it hard to justify having two boards which I feel are damn near identical - unless the Evo is going to completely rip up the domes where I had been previously using a Skate Banana 156.
I thought that the Evo was going to be seriously noticeably softer than the Proto but feel that it really wasn't! I'm beginning to think I should have gone for a 152 (as the 2009 151 I tried seemed so much more fun and soft). Or just gone with a different board altogether......
Thoughts anyone? Even just at home when flexing them I thought they were worryingly similar..... Did I happen to pick up an odd Evo with a stiffer flex than it should have had??
If it's a real goose, is it propaganda?
