I would prefer a board thats more fun than a straight out charger.

The main questions I have are , how much harder is it to butter and press on the Proto compared to the evo?

and how much more unstable is the evo at high speeds compared to the proto?Will the evo be sufficient as an all mountain board to go down black slopes and stuff?
Haven't ridden the Proto (but have the Evo). You can learn to butter the Proto, but you can't learn to un-chatter the Evo. I'd go Proto if I were you.
