Thanks for advice; contradictory advice is helpful as it does point out pitfalls as well as benefits.
Bit confused however as its pointed out Evo is more highly rockered board of the two mentioned. (Acid/Evo)
Thought higher rocker increased control in gnarly conditions ?
A mate reckons Evo one size smaller will give same control as Acid ??
(ie Evo 80 on a par with Acid 86 ???)
Think best bet is to try it !!! (Got Evo 80 now but not used it in condition mentioned )
Thanks anyhow .
