Being that this was my first experience with Never Summer, I gotta say it is a great board. I demoed so many boards both 2011 and 2012 and the Proto is on my top 5 list.
I'm looking forward to riding more NS boards now because I'm sure my list will be altered afterwards lol.
I definitely didn't expect to become a hardcore supporter this quickly, but I am. I can't deny the quality and performance of the Proto CT. You'll be very happy with this board if you pick it up.
Out of curiosity, what would be your other 4?
