Never Summer Proto CTX

I was wondering if anyone has experience with this board. I'm bigger but am looking for a more all around twin that I can take in the park and definitely think the Proto will be my next purchase. I was wondering if I should get the 155 CTX or the 158 CTX considering the blunted tips make the board ride bigger than it is. I'm 6'3 around 190. This board will mostly be my smaller mountain/park board. Thanks all.

Go to equipment reviews and look at the Proto CT reviews. Angrysnowboarder has two reviews of the Proto CT as well.

Ya, I've read Leo's review on the Proto as well as the angry snowboarders. I also checked one out at my local shop where the owner actually has one. One of the employees suggested a 158 CTX but because I'm using it mostly in the park I'm wondering if I could get away with the 155.

My guess is the 155 should do you fine

I'm your weight and have a 157 CT. I might actually go up to the 160 for Tahoe mostly-mountain riding. If you're in an area that gets pretty chopped up, I would probably go 158. If you're on smaller hills or usually riding pretty consistent, decent quality snow, then you the 155 should be fine.

I'll be mainly riding Kirkwood with maybe a few days at northstar and bear valley. I have a 159 Heritage X and just wanted something smaller for the park, I was looking at the Revolver until I saw this board that's why I was thinking about the smaller CTX.

Personally, if i already had a heritage i would get a softer park board than the proto.
