Hey, I was searching for Neversummer Proto CT (was wondering if any stores were already selling the 2012 models) and found this thread. So I justed demo'd the 2012 Proto CT 154 along with the 2012 Evo 154 and 2012 SLR 153 and 155 and thought I'd chime in (only read a few of the pages on this thread) an quickly say that for me the Proto CT 154 would be fine for pretty much any "normal" size jump (the biggest jump I've done was around 65 ft when I was younger).
The board is a lot of fun... much lighter than old Neversummer boards, with a really snappy nose/tail (Evo is more buttery, SL is more solid/damp/stable)
Info about myself:
I'm 5'9" 150 lbs, have been riding for 14 seasons at roughly 30 day a season. Consider myself an expert freerider (can handle any inbounds slope) and an advanced freestyle rider (comfortable throwing spins on 35-40 ft jumps). I currently own a 2008 NS SLR 155 and have previous owned a 2005 NS Evo 155 and a 2008 NS SL 155.
@LEO - I just got a pair of Rome 390 BOSS and like them a lot... what is issue with the strap ladders?
