What never summer for me?:D
 
Hey guys:D

I am from Portugal and i am looking for a snowboard:D

I am 1.86m and 90kg and wear size 10.5 boots:D

My setup is:

Bataleon The jam 161
Cartel restricted and malavita
burton ION


I use the bataleon as my all board and i love it:D

But i was trying to go down a bit for a fun board that still could do everything:D

i came across the neversummer brand:D

And i am torn in PROTO Vs SL for 2012.... qhat do you think guys?

For my style of riding (not agressive most of time , grooms, powder , some small jumps and some speed ) will the PROTO be enough or the SL be better?


And syze...??

I would like to go about 159-160 and i hear the PROTO 157 has more efective edge than a 161 burton custom...

Does this mean i could go with a 157 PROTO or 158 SL ou better to up for 160 PROTO or 161 SL as a all do board?:D


thanks guys!!!!!

update guys:D

got burton malavita and cartel restricted::D

i am getting a proto CT 158 for the malavitas:D get them white or black?:)


And for the other board i was thinking of a SL ( 158 or 161 )? or should the HERITAGE would be better to complement the PROTO?

are the SL and proto a bit similar?

thanks guys:D

Grab the Heritage or... hell grab a Raptor. The SL is too close in characteristics to the Proto to have both.

thanks

He doesn't have an SL, he has a Jam.

I'd go for the Proto if you want something more playful. Of course I have no idea how the jam performs.

I would go with the Heritage & the Proto.

Raines 11-11-2011 04:12 AM

Unless I read wrong he ordered the Proto already lol

i didnt order yet:D:D:D

I have the option of ordering 2 boards for good price...

I am 1.86 m and 90kg...

I was into trying the PROTO and the SL as the more all round boards...

I have decided for the 157 PROTO.


And i was thinking of the 158 or 160 SL...

But i started thinking that the 2 boards could be much alike... so i sell one then ... or i buy 2 diferent boards now...

I think the raptor would be too much for me...

Raines 11-15-2011 09:15 AM

Ok guys the shop where i buy has this options...:)


SL 158 / 161 For my 1.86m , 90kg and 10.5 Could i use the 158 for all mountain everything or woulb be better with the 161? i dont do jibs and boxes...

Does the SL ride switch well?

they have the proto CTX 158 - will this be too much for my 10.5 burton ion? will edge to edge be much slower?

Or maybe the EVO 157? too soft?

thanks guys:D i am ordering very soon:D

It would be my all mountain do it all board:D
