I'm currently on last year's NS Proto CT...I was thinking about picking next's year EVO and was wondering if the two boards are too similar? (Turning 40 next Feb.)

No year of Proto will be similar to any year of Evo.

Oh please, Proto and Evo are pretty similar boards in most respects. Proto a touch stiffer and definitely more versatile, but otherwise not much in it.

I have one each in the same size and for me they perform wildly different. They are actually in my basement full of core shots I ride a hundred days a year - "oh please" ?

Proving yourself an internet snowboarder with access to catalogs as usual, fuck off.

Stay tuned for more in-depth thoughts...
Did you get a change to "break in" the board, Leo? How does it handle now?

I stand by my point. They are very similar boards blunt tipped true twins with RCR profiles and almost identical sidecuts, sintered bases, etc.
Main difference is that the Proto is a bit stiffer and has a few more carbon features. The effect on the ride is that the Proto is a little damper/less chattery and holds a carve/edge a little better at the limit. In contrast, the Evo is a bit more forgiving and quicker to turn.
Still very close though: The difference between the Proto and the Evo is less than between either one and over 90% of all boards out there hell, the difference between either and any other NS board is greater than between the two.

"Wildly different" would be something like poutanen's Virus, a short stubby pow board like a Fish or 420, etc.

PS: I get the catalogues because some of our shops sell these boards. Also means that I get to ride quite a few of them. So your ad hominem attack not only misses the point but is also incorrect.

If that was directed at me, then the answer is about 15-20 (not necessarily full) days for each deck.
