I have kind of a strange question. I was just hired at REI which has opened the door to some amazing discounts from a few board brands. I was convinced that the Proto 155 CTX would be my next board but now it seems like I should at least investigate other choices and save some money.
I understand there are obvious features that NS boards (especially 20th anniversary) hold over other brands but I was wondering if anyone could pick an equivalent board to the Proto from any of the following brands: GNU, K2, Burton, Arbor, Ride, Salomon and Rossignol.
Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
