Mainly, what are the disadvantages of riding a slightly stiffer board with a slightly less stiff binding? Thank ya
You'll be just fine.
I think you'll see the Proto being more playful than you think. With the crazy new tech and shapes these days, it's much more difficult to find flex patterns without actually riding it. Pressing the board by hand doesn't give a good measurement these days. My Heritage feels very stiff when flexed by hand, but I can bend it all over the place when I rip with it. And at the same time the tail seems to have magical powers if I land tail heavy, and it suddenly plops me back down instead of spitting me over backwards.
