Yes. A 153 Proto has virtually the same effective edge length as my non-blunted 158 Evo.
When it comes to dampness and stiffness, most all NS boards will be stiffer and damper than other companies' similar boards. Meaning that a NS park stick will be stiffer and damper than most companies' parks sticks, etc.
One of the reasons why I recommended against the Heritage for you is your weight. It's just going to be a lot of board for someone as light as you are.
