Cheers for all the feed back. Haha as is the trouble when getting on board with forums, just when you think you've got a short list, more options open up.
Will look into the other boards you've mentioned. Preferably would like to get a ride as I can order it through work and save myself a bit of cash. But the Proto is so tasty...
I would say stick with your shortlist since people agree that the boards are the right type of board for you. There are dozens of great, fun to ride snowboards out there made by many brands. There are fanboys and haters for all brands. Since you have the Evo, you know what Never Summer boards ride like and that helps a lot. Eventually, I'm sure you will want to try a board from a different brand (and you definitely should)... but when you are just starting out. Any board that is a good fit and your are comfortable/familiar is going to do the job.
