The Proto CT is a true twin, all mountain freestyle kind of board. It is designed to be playful and snappy, designed more for jumps and being able to hold its own on the whole mountain.

IMO, the Heritage is more of a freeride board, and not as playful or forgiving as the Proto would be. I also believe it is a directional twin, similar to the SL.

Here is a decent run-down of some of the different NS boards:

The flex of the Proto is stiffer, but the same dampness.

Proto/SL sounds right up your alley if you're sticking with Never Summer.

Looking to butter and possibly jib later? Doesn't sound like the Trice would be the right board. Maybe the Riders Choice.

Arbor Coda but I'm not sure how well the full rocker arbors ride on the East coast. I've hit ice with mine before but I'm on edge until I can get out of there (and if it's the whole mountain I just go home). I've been on the Coda on something right next to ice and it was fine.
thanks for the feedback.

does anyone know of any board similar to Proto/SL from other brands? Something so I can expand my list on this type of board.

Also, would you say T.Rice is more of powder board?
