Ben was kind enough to let me get a pull on one of these at SEFF this year and in the 3 minutes I had my hands on it I could tell that it was very different from my 70" Slick.
The thing that I really noticed was that knife edge performance was very different. The Extra just felt much more "locked in" especially going from normal to high beta knife edge. With the Slick it seems to start to wander a good bit when you go really high beta, but I didn't notice that quality with the Extra. Maybe Ben is just much better at knife edge mixing than I am
