Late to the show [Proto CT Thread]

Hey Guys,

I'm way late to the show. To make it short and sweet. I currently ride a 2011 Banana on Force Bindings. I want the Never Summer Proto CT in 157. Two questions:

1.) If possible, can someone PM me a place to order it.

2.) Am I making the right choice for a good all-mountain board?

Thanks for the help, and if i'm SOL on getting this board before my next boarding trip, i'll just wait to get it next year (hopefully that isn't the case).

Thanks All.

If you are in Canada:
Never Summer Proto CT Snowboard - Alter Ego Sports :: Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada

We'd need more info to say that this is the good board for you (height, weight, boot size, riding style, location, etc...)

Thanks Simon.. I'm 5-11, Size 10.5 Boot and I weigh 205lbs. I don't do park except some small boxes and small ramps, mostly I just do all-mountain. I've only been boarding for 4 years, and the past two seasons I have been riding on my Banana.

i had a 59w banana like a couple years ago. shit sucks compared to the ct. i ride a 157 as well. make sure you bevel/detune before you ride boxes/rails.

Sounds a bit like my stats (6'1", 220) and my riding style. I ride a 160 CTX(size 12 boots) and it's perfect!

As for the detuning, I'm still hesitating because I never had problems on rails yet, and I really like the edge hold when carving. I did catch an edge badly buttering though...

Since I don't do park, i'm hoping this CT is a better ride than my Skate Banana. Another quick question, has anyone ever rode the CT with Union Force Bindings? Or should I invest in new bindings for the CT? Thanks all.
