Or you could get a Flow Verve or Era brand new for the price of last years Evo/Revolver...

Similar camber profile, in my experience same edge gripability, better base profile, and lighter.

Both come in 152 and being wider than average will more than likely fit your 12's. The Verve is fairly close to the Evo flex wise. The Era fits somewhere in the middle between the Evo and Proto.

Nothing similar as far as camber, closest to the way the Evo rides is probably either the Green Machine or Indoor FK. Capitas bases are weaker than average, they get torn up pretty quick on jibs. I owned an Indoor and didn't really like it, except in deep snow. FK is one of the most fun camber styles to ride for twins in deep snow. I had a Scaremaster and untill all the rocker stuff hit the market it was one of my favorite sticks. I loathe Urban FK like is on the Horror, a 147 Kink was more stable than a 155 Horror with UFK. I got similar stability out of a 154 Arbor Blacklist as I did a 159 Black Board Of Death. So that's not great.

oh okay. after much researching i found out the problem. I wear between 9.5-10.5 shoes but my boot size is a 12. I think I was fitted wrong when I bought my boots (k2 maysis'). I'm going to talk to my mom about getting me new boots, and I believe I'll only be slimming down to a 9.5-10.5 boot. Thus, a 152 evo will be perfectly fine. And this leads me to another quesiton. I have Large Rome 390 Bosses. If I slim down to a 9.5 boot size, will I also need smaller bindings?

Might depend on the boot, best to ask Rome. Get boots then ask.

Also being in something sub 11 opens up a ton of other options. I rode Bear nearly exclusively this last year. I started the season weighing close to what you do and my go to board before I gained weight was a Signal Park Flat 152. $360 and a bombproof sintered base. Local too. Another great option that is also local is the Echelon Rounds

I would say no. I've got the same bindings and wear the same size boot you're looking at (9.5). I ordered a S/M rome boss binding first, and when it came I adjusted everything really big and, to be fair, i could get in it but I was like "fuck this". The toe strap just barely reached.

Got the bigger ones and they fit really good. In short, I'd say you're fine.

No. We've got 9 libertines and 10 TmTwo's. The both work well in l/xl targa's and force sl's.

x2. I ride 8.5 in boots and the S/M romes barely make it. I have L/XL on my other board and the fit is a he// of a lot better.

I walk around in 10s for all my street shoes, but because they fit me very well, I wear 32s in a 9.

I have a friend who walks around in 8.5's and wears size 11boots because he puts 2 pairs of thick socks on to ride and then goes and gets wide board too! He crazy!

Everyone everywhere will tell you having boots that fit is the only VERY important part of your equipment. Have bindings that don't fall off and down the hill u go!
