I've ridden a 153 at 140lbs (hell that's how I learned). What's a cm. My only concern would be width but he's cool there.

Thanks Guys!

I ordered the Blacklist =).

Hopefully this board will be as good as the Proto (which just got stolen yesterday).

Does anyone have any idea how the two compare?

I would say the proto would be stiffer then the blacklist. Also with the arbor being a true rocker it will feel a little different when you first ride it. I will have more to add to the review after this weekend is up, also will add my evo review to the mix.

Thanks guys for all the help.

I ended up returning the Blacklist and getting a 150 Westmark.

I debated long and hard between the two and really wanted to try the Blacklist, but in the end, I preferred a shorter board.

The Westmark is great. Its rides really well and is lightweight. The one thing I do miss about the Proto is the dampening.

hey no worries 154 is short for me and I love riding a short board, you think the proto was damp try the SL or raptor.

Have you guys tried the Coda? I've been riding it but curious how it compares, the griptech is def awesome and pops way better than my previous board.
The one thing I dislike about the Coda, the bamboo top sheet is extremely fragile, other boarders and skiers occasionally hitting my board tons of chips on edges. I won't lie the graphics won me over, I was looking at Westmark and Blacklist as well. Wonder if the Blacklist is a worthy upgrade.

I will agree on the topsheet. I had my Westmark leaned up against my bed and it slid down (not to the side, but actually slid down in the direction a snowboard usually travels) about a foot and lightly bumped into my computer chair which caused a nice chip on the tail. Will it mess with the way it rides? Nope. Is it delicate as fuck so far? Yup.

it fell down a FOOT and the topsheet chipped?
That really is kind of ridiculously brittle. I think I've come across a couple threads complaining about the durability of Arbor boards in general (not just the topsheet). Can't really confirm as I don't own one.
