More in the park than out = Evo
More out the park than in = SL

Easy.

Halfway in between = Proto.

The Evo is basically a park stick that can hold it's own outside the park.
The SL is a great all-around board with a slight setback. It's a slightly directional twin that's stiffer than the SL, but still soft enough to have fun on.
The Proto is a true twin with blunted tips with a flex similar to that of the SL.

Or the SL just because it is less limited than the Evo. The Evo will fold in pow and flutter at speed.

Imo the Evo should be reserved as a jib board (there are just WAYYY better all mountain alternatives).

The SL will be there as your skills grow and allow you to take it anywhere. If I was considering an SL however, I would get the Proto instead hands down unless money is the factor.

Pretty much answered u already so just quoted myself

If you are riding really light, say 135-150lbs on a 154 Evo, you may like that. I was 180lbs on a 154 and for me, it is just not enough board outside of jibbing.

The Proto dominates everything but once broken in is easily pressable.

You'll have to ask a more specific question if this doesn't cover it.

Yes I have '54s in both sitting downstairs.
