Not the best pics to demonstrate the difference, but hopefully you can get the point from them. But, I laid my 158 Evo beside snowklingers 153 Proto and they were virtually identical length contact point to contact point.
Ahh I see. The blunt shape pushes the edges out as opposed to the metal edges of a thinner board being in the air.
