    I own both, you cannot really go wrong with either one.

    The KORAL's run short, right above the knee line, whereas the Sprawls run a bit longer.

    Overall though I like the material of the Sprawls better.

    If I had to pick one I'd go with the Sprawls. IMO.

    I would go with the sprawls. They material in them is nicer and I think they tend to fit a little better. Atleast on me anyway.

    Don't own Sprawls but I LOVE my Koral shorts. Very comfortable and never in the way with the split seams. The material is very tough and not likely to ever tear.

    I've always been curious about Korals, but I keep hearing bad things about the quality. Sprawls on the other hand I wanted to hate, but I have to admit that I ended up loving them and now own 3 pairs. They are just so well made and comfortable.

    Do you mean, like too rough?

    I am looking to get a new pair for sure. Have sprawls, but wanted to try something new.

    yes, rough, stiff and heavier.

    Out of Sprawl, Koral, Truth, Nogi and Clinchgear...i like Clinch gear the best, then Sprawl and then Nogi.

    Truth and Koral are too rough/heavy for my tastes.

    Sprawl for me. I haven't got to try the Koral VT Pros, but the rip-stop material doesn't sound to my liking. I've also read mixed reviews on them.
