Biggest difference I noticed riding them back to back was dampening and weight.

Yes, and both the same size. Both can be considered quiver killers I suppose, but at the same time there almost never is one board that does it all perfectly.

Hi Joe,

The sidecut on the SL will not be setback, but the bindings will be setback by about 0.5". If you move the bindings forward, you will get a ride like that of a true twin.

Thanks for the support of NS!

Very interesting. That is in direct conflict with their marketing materials and with what Gags (and other sales guys) have been telling people.
