I think it would be unfortunate to not see at least some of the review information on here. If people don't like it they don't have to read it or comment. But there will be plenty others (probably more) that will welcome the info.

Yea, and I've already been asked for comparisons. I'm the only one in the position to directly compare the previous Proto and Evo to the new ones. Although my old models are last year's rather than this year's, nothing has changed so it'll be a fair comparison.

And in the event that I can't land a Heritage or a Legacy for a deal before next season, I will surely be interested in how the new line will compare overall so that I can make the decision to either buy a 2013 model at/near full price or a 2014 model.

The tech on this year's Legacy and next year's is the same, IIRC with the exception of the new matte topsheet. I saw Leo's matte Evo and it's a nice feature.

They did do a slight upgrade from mine (2012) to the 2013 model though. Something about carbon fibers. I think it was to add pop or something.

Well in any event it will be better than the board I currently have. I will say this though, it's been a good one to learn on and made a world of difference compared to some of the sketchy rentals I got at Crystal and Caberfae. I'm just ready for something better.

The steepest discounts I've seen on a new NS from the previous year was around a hundred bucks, funky sizes obviously since the common ones sell out.

I don't think you'll find a new NS for less than $400.

Thanks for the info. I'm willing to spend that but I'm also willing to wait and see if I can get that discount too. If it were strictly MY choice I'd just buy one at full price now. But, there's always the wife.....

haha, yeah. I got lucky with a wife as obsessed as me.

...and I paid her off with her own Infinity.

So I'm basically forcing my wife out of the house this weekend to head up to Highlands without me. She'll go ride with a group of friends of ours.

So.

What do *I* do while she's gone? All I've got so far is a Halo 4 marathon session but I see that getting old by Friday night.
