Proto CT Questions
Hey guys, I've been trying to get my hands on a Proto for a month now after reading the plethora of love being shown for it here on the forum, and personally demoing it around christmas time, and have negotiated a good deal on either a 154 or a 157. So my first question is, weighing around 160 with size 10.5 vans aura boots(a little bulky), which size would you guys go with. Im used to riding a 156 cambered board and I know that since the proto has blunted tips it rides like its a size or two larger so I figured I could go with the 154 for a "funner" feel. On the other hand, this is gonna be my quiver killer so it would be in my best interest to go with a 157 to be better in the pow and all-mountain capabilities right? Its so tough...
Second question is what other boards out there compete with the proto in the do-it-all category? I fell so deeply in love with the proto after riding it for a day that I've been blinded to see any other options haha. But now that I'm close to finally pulling the trigger I wanted a final confirmation that I'm getting what's best for my money.
Thanks in advance guys,
