IMO, magnetraction holds a bit better then the variogrip on NS boards, however after riding a bunch and dulling the edges, the Libs maintain their edge hold better. I really liked my Proto on the ice when I bought it (no detune of the edges) but after I ripped around for a few weeks the edges dulled out it really lacked ice hold compared to my T. Rice. That being said, as long as it wasn't a bulletproof day, I would ride the Proto. I took that thing off some good sized jumps (35+) and it was fine. I also prefer the base on the Proto as it seemed to hold wax better and feel less sticky in-between waxings. And the carbonium topsheet on the Proto is really tough. My Libs always get torn up really quick.

That being said, you will likely find a TRS on sale before a Proto.

Thanks everybody for your suggestions. Unfortunately, the person that was selling the proto (my friend) wants to keep it now.. After all that dilemma. Furthermore, all the protos are sold in Canada, I've looked pretty much everywhere. I'll be purchasing the TRS on sale, and will look for a cobra next season as well.

Thanks everybody for your generous comments!

Make imaginary line on the mountain how will you ride it ! from the top to the bottom !! so is that , check where you live what is the snow condition most of the time !! thats is more important ! what the board does is what the rider wants !
