Why get a Proto if you mostly ride park? I'd say you should be looking into the Evo for that kind of money and intent.

You're comparing two very different boards dude, what kind of debating have you been doing? And a size 11 foot and what is very likely a good duck stance for park, you could rock a wide board, but you definitely don't need one.

You can't go wrong with the Rook.

The Proto is overpriced and overhyped mediocrity.

The Rook is definitely a great option. Others to look into: Flow Era, Signal Freedom Machine, Burton Process Camber or Parkitect, Rossi Trickstick, Echelon Orion, Salomon Villain or Sabotage, or a Yes Jackpot.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

I rode a 157 Proto with size 11s and no toe drag whatsoever. You do not need a wide.

It's pretty obvious on here that Nivek is butt hurt over something involving NS.

I wouldn't worry about it Decade. There are better boards out there, but the proto is a great board. You'll be hard pressed to find anyone who's ridden one who shares the same opinion as Nivek in that it's mediocre.
