I love all the votes for the Proto CT. It's a solid all round board that does everything well, but nothing great. And the people that are building a quiver including it? Wow. Only way I'd purchase a Proto, is if I was going one board quiver. Otherwise, there are better options for Park, Large Kickers, Big Mountain, etc.
Don't get me wrong. I really enjoyed my time on the Proto as a do it all board. But came away feeling everything it did was a B. Nothing excelled...
Spot on man... Felt the same way... just sold my Proto CT from last season for that reason... just didn't do anything great, and I am not a one board quiver kinda dude-breh. Also am not a fan of flying-v type hybrid rocker. More of a rock-flat(or camber)-rock kinda guy. Makes a lot more sense and produces a much more natural board flex progression.
