Well I like them both, but they are very different. The Molan I feel has a bit tighter control when its surfing on its hull, and it feels looser across the wave or pile, spins very well... The Vision has more rocker and lower volume ends and so it was for me much more predictable when engaging the bow or stern. The Molan is so bulbous that I find it more challenging to initiate and then it tends to cork out in random directions. When you do nail it, the loop goes huge though. The rocker of the Vision helped with surfing too.
As far as weight, I'm about 140 and feel almost too light for the Medium Molan. The length is good, but there is a bit too much air down around my feet. On the other hand, it's a very comfortable boat.
When I look at the bow of the new Pyranha Jed, it looks like they were trying to address that overly bulbous bow.
There is a huge amount of personal preference and style that goes into what you are going to like in a playboat.
I hope this helps!
