Getting ready to fly the velox here in a week or so (waiting on the motor) but i like the 71" slick much much mote than the 72sc. I have not flown the 74" edge. Though I liked the 51" slick better than the 48" edge and 55" edge.

72 SC is epic, no two ways about it. I like it more than the Slick for general hucking. Slicks I love when I'm siding on precision... Edge or Velox to get freaky with some hard throwing down. Edge is pretty amazing when it comes to authority of surfaces when stalled. big Velox pitch rate is sweet, but it still tracks absurdly well when you speed it up... all-round performance it's a seriously tough choice, but the Extras continue to be my reference point for simply being comfortable and happily throwing it into any attitude...

+one, more I fly my 72 the more I like it overall. Close to getting a gas 87 and not waiting for any other possible 50-60cc plane.

There was an upgrade for that, they both leak the same now.

Love my 72. Flown a 70 slick before but it wouldn't be fair for me to make a comparison due to my lack of stick time with it.

Flew a 103 extra and it was the sweetness for sure.
