the board is awesome, feels great, but does not have the low end of your misfit, so expect that. The stance is also narrower. The rocker on the street is pretty big, especially compared to the misfit...however i got rid of my street and got a hadlow, same feeling as the street but better low end. I would say the low end between the street and the 146 misfit is 4-5 knots at 200 lbs...the hadlow is only like 3 knots behind the misfit...that huge concave helps...

Hmmm, kind of difficult to compare the Street to your Misfit 146x43.5 since the largest Street is 137x42.5, this is a big difference in size. However, for its size, I've found the Street to have very good low end performance and still maintains great control when the wind is cranking. I would say the Street has a wide wind range. I don't think I'd want to be on a 146x43.5 in high winds. I would also bet the Street is lighter and rides smoother. The Street is really a fun & amazing ride in the 137x42.5 size (haven't tried it in other sizes).
