Default Arbor 2012 Draft Vs 2013 Draft???

Hey guys,
My boy was considering a Draft. He loved the 2012 we demo'd. He is looking at a 2013 Draft. He is complaining that the 2013 is a bit stiffer, even though he has never ridden the 2013.

Has anyone actually ridden both, if so can you tell me your thoughts on the comparison of the two. Only review I read was Angy's and he said it was only mildly stiffer.

Exactly, only mildly stiffer. Bascially stiffer enough to make it so that you can snap out of jib. It will still be super buttery.

There's the tiniest bit difference between the 13 and the 12. It's hardly noticeable, without a doubt you will still be able butter or jib anything. It only makes jumps and getting out of things more fun

That demo was probably broken in as well. Take that into account. It takes 15 days to break a board in.

15 days? Grab the nose of the board with both hands making sure the tail is dug firmly into the carpet proceed to straddle the board and bounce in the center of it with all your weight. Listen to the fiberglass crack and break in, boards done.
