[QUOTE=lernr;503794]I'd get the Proto, and I am from WA (Lib Tech country).
NS has 3 year warranty, full metal edges, and better base.
better Base???... jeez I destroyed mine this year. Been riding for 20 years and don't go stupidly straight for suspect areas. But definitely found my Proto to have a softer, more gouge willing base out of the 5 boards I brought out with me this season.
having said that, by mid season I pretty much went exlcusive on my Proto. Love it. But the base is all messed up. IT will be my early season rock board next year, I'm afraid. Going to get a new one... and a size smaller than the 157 I rode this year.
**As an indicator of soft Ptex - noticed once or twice that when I gouged the base mid day... didn't need a sharp object to take away hanging ptex while on mountain... could just use my fingers to rip away, clean up.
