Sorry but there's no substitute for just trying the boats out for yourself. I've seen too many people who love one and hate the other...
I think I developed my current love (for a Nomad) by paddling in an RPM for so many years on pretty much everything and then hating the way most creek boats feel (for me.) I loved the RPM because it doesn't feel grabby, has tremendous secondary stability, carves great and is easy to roll. So I was looking for a creeker with a similar feel. The Nomad is the only one that gave me that and it feels easy to switch back and forth. The Burn felt slow, clunky and I found the Fluid to be awkward. (Stomper I never tried.)
I also tried the Habitat (down Wooley creek) and felt like the currents were grabbing the sidewalls and making it less stable.
The Nomad doesn't quite have the secondary stability that the RPM does and I have to roll it more; it doesn't carve as well but then I haven't noticed that any creekers gave me that feel. It boofs fine, rolls fine and feels comfy working through holes. It really felt good immediately unlike many boats that take getting used to. My only serious complaint is that it leaks like a sieve. (I still haven't gotten around to adding sealant to the holes.) Other than poor design on through-hull screwholes (vs Jackson) I think you could also wish for a better plastic such as Prijon that will take more abuse (like Brush Cr).
Hope that helps?
For what its worth I do one extra test on new boats besides just paddling them hard. I do an upstream lean to see whether I get snapped over too easily. I want a boat that is a little forgiving for creeks.
