The geo is similar, so handling is close. Spooky is lighter and a bit stiffer, but the Tsunami was also an awesome frame. I like the andonized frame of the Spooky, and visually the external butting is cool. II bought Spooky because they were on sale at the time. However, $600 for the Tsunami with custom geo is a good deal IMO.

Good to hear. I knew the Tsunamis were a great deal, but I didn't realize they were that inexpensive - especially for custom geometry. Thanks for the feedback!

Not sure where is pricing is now but they will still be cheaper than most comparable non custom made in Asia brands. For a race bike it's a no-brainer IMO.

Horse that is superb. Apart from the tyres, but I'm sure you already know about that.
