Thumbs up How does the Proto compare?

Hey guys,
I was wondering if anyone knows how this board stacks up against the LibTech T.rice? I'm in the market for a new board this fall and I have no experience with NS, so it would be a bit of a gamble for me. I have a Custom flying V and I'm getting rid of it because it's pretty bad on hardpack or ice and I don't really like EST. I ride mainly slackcountry poaching and hits/park jumps. Any help would be great

I've ridden the T Rice and it was okay, didn't really do it for me though. Like the SL way better which is the same flex as the Proto, or so I hear. NS has great build quality so you don't need to worry there.

Leaning towards the T.rice because even though I loved the stiffness and precision of my CustomX, I want it in an RC. Also looking forward to trying magnatraction once our mountains turn icy in january
