Before Ola chimes in, I'll offer you my experience. I use a Kode predecessor Acid74 for high wind bump/jump (also a step down from Kombat86). I'm 86kg gusty freshwater sailor, so it's used only when it's really howling. Couldn't be happier with it's behavior/control in 30-40+ knots and chaotic water state. The differences may come down to personal riding style, but I believe most of bump/jump sailors will prefer "solid directional" ride (acid/Kode) over a "skatey loose" one (evo or quad). If you actually ride waves, then it's another story.
What's your weight and what sails will you use?
