Default 2006 Evo 91 V 07/08/09 Evo 90?

Hi

Whats the main difference (feel / range etc) between the 2006 Evo 91 and the later versions of this board (ie the 90)?

Are the later ones (07/08/09 90 shape) worth the extra spend as a light wind DTL board (to go with smaller Evos, ETs)?

Thanks a lot!
Northy

Bumping to the top to try and get a response please!

(ive seen a 06 at a good price so want to understand its shape compared to recent models)

Cheers,
Northy

I believe the 91 has an ever so slightly flatter rocker and in any case the XTV version got the "xtv treatment", ie a different v layout which make the board handle a faster top turn better. But the difference on the 91 -> 90 xtv is smaller than the 83 ->80 xtv in my opinion. Since I don't think you will use the 91/90 for fast wave riding so much (you have the 80, right) I think you can safely go for the 91.

I used to have a 91 myself btw and I had some really nice sessions on it.
