Do you think i would feel better in the 161?

Proto vs SL what do you feel better for all mountain riding but not doing rails or boxe?

I think its personal preference re size. The 158 is fine but if you prefer to go fast on groomers and want better edge hold the 161 would be a bit better.

Re Proto vs SL
Again it depends on what your version of all mountain is. The proto is definitely lighter and would be better if you play around a lot on the slopes doing spins and things along that nature. SL would be a bit better at more carving and going fast situations. Both boards can do what the other does but there is compromise.
