NS Evo or Revolver?

Hey guys, Im definatly getting one of these two boards (maybe I will even give a look into the proto) But I am 5'10, 205 pounds and a 10.5 boot size. Do I need the revolver or will the 160 evo be fine?

For us to help you, you need to help us.

What type of riding do you predominantly do? Snow conditions? etc.

For you to help him, you need to help yourself and know that the revolver and the evo are the same board but the revolver is for wider feet. Think he gave enough info in his post.

He also mentions considering the Proto which is a different board so I think that if he doesn't ride park then the proto might be better.

Evo. You don't need a wide.

And yeah, I'd definitely look into the Proto.

because it's a park stick, but you are a pretty big guy so the 160 might be needed. you are way over the weight range for the 157.

any possible chance to demo?

I'm 6'2" and about 215 with a 10.5 boot and I ride the 160 Evo with Large Cartels and they fit on there just fine, but your at about the max boot size for the width of the Evo IMO
