Sorry to thread jack but can u guys help me out with this same question. I'm 5'9" 165lbs. I ride relatively small east coast hills (camelback, whitetail, liberty). My riding style is riding switch, butters, spins, natural hits, and an occasional hard charge down the hill. I do not go in the park. I'm leaning evo because of the softer flex and the small hills I ride, but they can't get quite choppy and I'm not sure how it would hold up. I was waiting for the proto hd reviews, which is another story, which one is it? If it's the eve what bindings? Please help. Thanks.
