I have lots of time on the 2013 Nug and 2 Sesh's on the 2014 5 '5. The 5/5 seems a little stiffer. Good though. Seems more stable in chop at higher Speed. Riding Toeside it tracks Awesome for me Upwind as it does Heel. Low End seems about the same. Can't be totally sure about that yet. Flew it w 19 Edge. This I know is that it turns as easy and TIGHTER than the 2013 for my 241 PIES!! It seems the 5 more Inches give it more stability.
However the 2013 is an AMAZING stick! I guess for me there are suttle differences but I feel the 5/5 gives me a little more advantage.
At our weight we can make the Nuggs do whatever we want. I felt the Newer Nug was as loose as the Old one when you want it to be. It's hard to describe. I like both boards however the new one does ride chop smoother for sure. I don't have enough time on the new one riding waves to give you better feedback than this for now. The New Nug for me goes upwind easier while riding Toeside.
