157.

You want to take it in pow, you want it to be your mountain killer. Your quiver is more balanced if you have a 154 evo for certain days and a 157 for others.

The TFA is stiffer (marginally). And the BSOD has no issues riding switch.
Cheers for the reply mate, i've got the evo for playing around and it's fine on most reds just the choppier runs, blacks and pow i struggle on it. I'm leaning towards the TFA purely for the dampening as i think going from the evo the bsod would feel a bit like a plank.

BSOD is a progressive side cut, so it feels like a directional deck, where the TFA feels like a true twin.
Hope that helps.

Nose Dradamous Progressive sidecut is on BSOD, radial on the TFA. BSOD more directional, TFA - twin. BSOD lighter, and nimble, TFA turns on a dime, gives you nine cent change.

Taskmaster Thanks for the input bswrecka and Nolefan. Was there any particular reason you warned to stay away from Capita? Defo not after a big mountain board so the 2 YES's are out, not thought about the Signals tbh.

Awesome cheers mate. I love the Evo but on the steeper, cruddier reds & blacks it's a bit of a nightmare at times and don't even get me started on trying to ride it in pow ha ha. I think with me doing the BASI 2 i will definately need a more all mountain focused board and looking at the tech and speaking with the Capita guys the TFA will defo suit me better than the BSOD, the core profile and stiffness should give me a bit more dampening and i'm probably more inclined to go for the progressive sidecut too.

Again all feedback mucho appreciated.
