Default RE: What Evo to partner an Evo 74 ?

got E83 and E74 (now E75 xtv )
E83 is big, big enough for sailing 6m but i sail 5.8 to 5.3.
the scoop is flat and rocker is low making the board efficient in low gusty wind, making this board a good challenger when sailing underpowered 5.3.Just hollow 2m waves become hard to deal with E83, preferring 1m/1.5 waves.
I think the new XTV80 is more rockered and lifted, so it should be slightly a more radical beast than E83.
I found E92 is really a specific board for low 12knots wave environment, E83 can catch waves with 14knts generating speed.
hope it help
