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.
