    first of all just one to say hello as it s my first post.

    Has i haven t played yet vf evo ( not yet dispo in paris....) my suposition are purely based on video and what i have read.

    so, has you know SPOD make less dommage now, but it s still very long to execute, and it let you in a very long frame disavantage.

    In comparation , now yoho is a better float, shorter to execute (instead of you have to imput the command and not just putch 3 butons) and the frame disavantage it s better that SPOD (in guard impact).
    don t know exactly witch one will make more dommage ( not consireding wall condition witch may make spod more dommageable) .

    so here is my question, do you think that we just have to forget SPOD and just use YOHO?
    (i m not speaking about next a /versus/images/commands/B.gif/versus/images/commands/g.gif/versus/images/commands/p.gif/versus/images/commands/k.gif sabaki or in several wall condition like next sgplm).

    Hi Ranix, welcome to VFDC.

    In my opinion, I don't think the SPoD will be made useless by the improved Yoho now. The main reason is because the first hit of the SPoD (the stun palm) is a half-circular attack, which means you can only dodge in one direction to avoid being hit by it. The Yoho is a linear attack which can be safely dodged in either direction.

    So for opponents who like to dodge when they're disadvantaged, but don't choose the direction carefully, the SPoD will be a success but the Yoho will miss.

    ranix... another nice pro for the spod is that if the first hit connects vs. a grounded enemy the rest ALWAYS hits... but a yoho when the opponent is right against the wall, or a yoho vs. a crouch defender... might get you nothing. SPoD also has more forward range I think.

    no it's not... well, when you're first starting the SPoD looks cool. after doing it a tonsa times though it becomes to look dull. but it's like myke said; one of the semi-circular attacks that he has. and when you consider that you're beaning the opponent for a guarenteed 60+ pts of damage(i dunno how much the EVO SPoD does, and too lazy to look it up) for dodging to your back, that's really something.
