One caveat of the Evo is dampening or lack thereof.
Outside the park, you're going to get chatter on the faster runs especially if you draw out your carve.
I remedy this problem even when hitting the steeper runs by constantly switching from edge-to-edge.
But expect similar performance from any other freestyle board. Just a tip for you is all.
I actually like the Park Pickle. I'd take that over a Skate Banana any day of the week. I don't find it quite as snappy as the Evo though. Flex-wise, I think the two are similar with the Evo having a little more torsional flex.
Edge hold... Simply put... Nothing grips like Magnetraction and that's the bottom line. In fact, many complain that it grips too much. This can be resolved by detuning the edges. You'll still get plenty of grip thanks to the additional contact points. It just won't have that bite.
The asymmetrical sidecut does nothing for me. I put a little forward lean on my highbacks so there's that.
Between Evo and PP, I prefer Evo. More pop and more versatile IMO. I like the RC on the Evo over the PTX on the PP.
The Burton Hero is another solid choice. Love that board. Burton's V-Rocker is mellow and fun. The Hero handles its own on the groomers while still being a park board. Poppy, fast, and responsive.
