Hah that's actually pretty tough, they both go so well with the board. If I had to pick I'd go with the blue because it's a little more low key than the red, which suits the rest of the board. For better or worse, the sizes available are far too big so I'll never have to make that choice myself. Both look great though, keep up all the good work guys.

I like the blue too. We did 60% of them blue just for the reason you stated, so that sounds like it was the right call.

The Heritage is such a great board and I would love to expand the sizes. However it probably isn't likely since we already make a board that is very similar(SL) in 151 and 153. But I'll pitch your suggestion on making some smaller sizes. Thanks.

I have the Proto with the white carbonium topsheet and it's still pretty clean. It has some dirty spots, but that's mainly because I only cleaned it at the end of the season for storage.

I just wiped it with some orange cleaner and most of the grime and stuff came off. The smudges leftover are from my bindings.

If you want to keep it clean, just wipe it regularly and you won't have a problem.

I know B.Gilly is more conscious of his boards' cleanliness and his Proto still looks brand new. He's actually the one that told me to clean the top with the orange cleaner that I use on the base as well.

Heritage in a 153/154 please

Yes I know that is cutting into SL territory but a lightweight such as myself would love more options

I would have bought a Proto in 150 btw ..

Thanks Leo . Binding smudges are not an issue, can't help those. Its just the rest of the board's look...

Due to the rising cost of ammo, do not expect a warning shot! Sorry for the inconvenience.

Yea I completely understand you guys can only make boards in sizes enough people will be willing to buy. But If I had one wish, it would be to have the proto ct in like 149. It would be a dream come true.

I like the blue because it would reflect well off the snow, but I LOVE being able to see the guts thru the red....

If there was a way to make the blue more transparent, phewwwwwww

It's kinda opposite of the awesomeness that Arbos does with their topsheets.

I really prefer subdued graphics on boards. I love the subtle topsheet that is most visible... however I love the transparent red base that doesn't get seen as much. Wow, the more I talk about this board the more I get excited to ride it
