Is it the slightly stiffer one (more like Proto's flex) or is it as flexi as the 2011 and 2012 model will be? I have a Proto currently and tried the 2011 (the one with never summer written in big scary writing) and loved it. I want the soft flexing one!
Don't get me wrong BA, that Proto is totally wicked - but goddamn you for selling that Evo. I like the Skate Banana as much as the Proto CT BTW - don't know how to justify getting rid of either one! Probably just keep buying boards until I'm out on the streets. Actually I reckon I could stack my boards up in a teepee type affair and I could live under them anyway. Win win!
I am saying I want the Evo cause I have tried it - is the Blacklist or the Westmark as playful as the Evo??? I just want something noodly and UBER fun cause IMO (FACT) the SB should be compared to the Proto and not the Evo cause they are much more similar boards.
Any other suggestions? Would you say wait it out and get the 2012 Evo? I know you rated it more cause of the blunted tips - but I'm no pro, would it make a difference for me? or the Blacklist? I know what Nivek would say!
Cheers in advance (if you help that is - otherwise "your mother")
SB shouldn't even be on the same level as the Proto or the Evo it's too soft and loses all pop in 20 days. Honestly if you're putting the proto and sb on the same level and the evo in there as well the Blacklist and Westmark aren't for you. Maybe the Draft if you're looking at Arbor instead.
I looked into the draft - really like the graphics and sound of that board but heard that the bronze edge on the draft was less than desirable!? Really like it mind!
I reckon I must have a one off SB cause it's done about 30 days and is popping as well as the Proto - but maybe I haven't got popping the CT nailed yet?! That all said I just like having a magnetraction board for icy days!
Is the blacklist similarly stiff to the Proto not the Evo then?
Not with my UK size 8 feet unfortunately pal. It's times like these I wish I didn't have such girl sized feet! I call them ninja feet though. For kicking ass! Why get rid of it? What didn't work for you? I reckon I might have an interested mate!! I'll ask him!
