I can't say what the damage would have been if it was my premier but I've nailed so many rocks with that board and everytime I had a hard time finding the damage on the base. I sense that is not the case with the proto.
I have much less days on my 2010 Premier. However, I just spent a week in Jackson Hole which still had some thin cover in areas and I nailed a bunch of rocks and boulders nearly every day. It still has nothing but surface scratches. Only 1 bigger gouge near the edge that I may have to keep an eye on.
