Why would you discourage someone from providing useful information?small wave kiter wrote:Please don't compare Evo to nugget, they are very different!

I found the Vader a little to corky for me but the Evo and Vanguard just sat really well.topmick wrote:Do you have a Vader bigtone ?
I find it interesting that you rate the Vanguard ahead of the Vader, why is that so ?
Evo looks sick, I have to get one.
I ride them both, so I find them similar. Shape, size etc.small wave kiter wrote:Please don't compare Evo to nugget, they are very different!
I found both the Evo and Vanguard worked really well for my weight in the surf I was in. And I was not expecting the Evo to have the same lift/float/planing as the Vanguard, but it sure did have. I suspect the Vanguard will have better straight line speed but will not turn nearly as well as the Evo.Bushflyr wrote:bigtone667 wrote: IMHO, I rate the Vanguard and EVO as equal, and Vader just behind.
Thanks for the review, especially the fact that you've ridden all three boards as that really helps those of us with one or the other.
Can you elaborate on why you rate the VG and Evo, two very different boards, as "equal" and put the VD "behind" them? I'm not bashing you at all (I hope it didn't come out that way) I'm really curious as I currently ride a 5.4 VG and have been eyeballing the Evo really hard ever since it came out in regular surf construction. I've passed on getting the VD just because I thought it seemed pretty similar to the VG and there would be too much overlap having both of them.
