They are very similar. If you like the Vision, you will most likely love the Biscuit...mostly because it has the bad ass outfitting. I don't think I would drop the coin to get a new Biscuit though, you probably won't see that big of a difference.

I have a LL Biscuit 65. I'm a diehard LL fan. Outfitting > all else.

How about a Project 52!!!!

Biscuit is sweet, a great steep seem hole boat and no doubt Bad Ass outfitting is awesome. I have both a Biscuit and Project, been in the Project lot longer and feel its a better player and faster hull speed. Now cutting to the case, have sweet price on a Project 52 witch would be less gallons and easier to throw down, not to mention easier rolling as well. If you would like to chat give the shop a ring when you have time...


keep the hairy side up...

Actually, there are some fairly significant differences between the vision 56 and the biscuit 55- for one, the vision has those aggressive surfboard-inspired rails wheras the biscuit has more of a step rail with a relief edge. Both carve well, but the biscuit is a bit more forgiving when the edge is caught. Also, the vision is more of a big wave boat and as someone mentioned earlier, the biscuit excels in holes and has a ton of pop- having said that,it also does great on waves. The biscuit seems faster as well, partly due to the flattened stern rocker. The overall comfort is significant as well. My only beef with the biscuit, (I own both), is the depth of the cockpit near my hips-(I have a short torso). I installed the LL seat lift kit under the BA outfitting and mostly resolved this issue, and it gives me more leverage.

Either boat would serve you well

Shortbus thanks for the great response. Could you possibly answer a few more questions?

I've been paddling a Vision 44 but the boat is way too small for me so I've been looking to move up and been considering both of these. I'm a bit afraid of the Biscuit because I keep hearing about a lack of edges. How does that boat cartwheel or bow/stern squirt? I love the way my 44 handles and how I can slide down a wave really nicely but I love hearing about the pop of the biscuit. Any advice?

(still haven't been able to find a Biscuit to demo as that would be the most sure solution to my problem)
