Old Burn vs. New Burn

I'm looking at getting a Burn. I've heard some people say that they liked the old Burn better than the new. However, I don't know what the difference is between the two. Anyone have any insight?

I just got a 2010 Burn about a month ago and love it so far. I upgraded from a H3. If you check out the 2010 on CKS's website they give details about the changes from 2009. I agree it seems to auto-boof, it's fast, and is very easy to roll. The outfitting is Connect 30, not much different from last year's.

I own an old medium burn but paddle a large new burn for work and they both seem pretty similar. The new one definitely boofs well and seems a bit faster but hard to tell if that is the new design or the extra length. I like the old burn a bit better but I think that's because it fits me a bit better and is outfitted a bit better for me. I think the major difference is the new burn has a bit softer edges and a bit more rocker, but I could be wrong about that. Outfitting is mostly the same. Both are great boats and I've been happy with them both.
