Default nitro rook 2014vs NS proto hdx 2014

hi i am buying a new board and was wondering which board is better and if either of them are a great choice for an advanced rider (money is not an issue) any other boards you would recommend. i ride every terrane. i race slalom compete in park and ride lots of powder.

thank you

If money is really no issue and those are truly your intended uses, then you should get 2 (or 3) boards. No single board will be great all of these.

money is not an issue for a single board, i know its hard to get a board that handles everything but any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

What your asking for doesn't exist.

There is no competition park board that floats in pow and can euro carve (race).

i know that there are no board that actually do it. i just need one that can get close or the best one out there. i am not about to drop over 1000 on just a board (not including bindings and boots.). any info on either the rook or proto HDX ?

thanks

Again, you're asking for an everything board that doesn't exist. Before anyone can recommend something, you need to give some indication of what you want the board to excel at.

Like I only use groomers to get to the park

Or

I haul ass so much I don't even see the park go by

Or

If there's no fresh I'm sleeping in


Given that, the proto is an all mountain twin, and the rook appears to be a more park/jib/butter specific board. Just from the description I read, no personal experience, I don't think you'll be wanting to carve a slalom steep on the rook. So generally the proto leans more all mountain, which is I guess what you asked for and the rook doesn't.

you seem new to this forum... seeing that youve only posted 3 times. in this exact thread.
but.....
if you scroll up near the top. theres a SEARCH function. there have been countless topics on the Proto and Rook. instead of having us try and read your thoughts and decipher your words. do a little research on your own. then ask educated questions after that.

Sounds like money is an issue then. So what's your real budget for a deck? BTW you could do a pow, or park deck with an all mt deck for under a grand.

money is not an issue for 1 board. i mean keep it under 800 (i do not know many if any boards that are over 800 that i would actually need) i need the closest thing you can get to a quiver killer??

thank you
