Neversummer Proto CT
 
Hi guys, I'm looking for a new board and the NS Proto CT popped on my radar.
Actually i own a ' 11 Lib T.Rice (with HP) 157, a '10 Drake Df1 (156) and a '10 Gnu Park Piclke (155).
I am spending about 60 days in a year on the hill, I feel confortable on euro carving (yeah, easy on the Alps ;) ), basic freestyle moves (fs3, cab3, bs3 and switch bs1... next season i want to get the four 540s!) and not-so-deep powder. I'm a small guy, about 140 lbs and about 6 and a half feet tall (180cm if I don't failed on the calculation).

I love the feeling of the Hoursepower, the dampening effect and lightness of the basalt and the rocker-camber combination, but suddenly I noticed that i just hate my Gnu :(
The BTX sucks for me, I'm looking for another Park/AllMountainFreestyle board, but i don't wanna buy board very similar to the T.Rice.

Is the NS any softer/forgiving than the Lib? O should I look on the Evo?


Sorry for my grammar/spellcheck fails, I'm working on my foreign languages :(

Just for the record, 180 cm is more around 5 feet 10 inches. The Proto sounds good, the evo might be better considering that you don't want something a lot like your t rice. However, they'll be almost impossible to find around this time in the season.

I would go for the Evo if you are concerned about it being too similar to the Rice.

The Proto CT is more playful and forgiving than the T. Rice. Much easier to flex. You will have entirely different boards in your quiver.

Go with the Evo.
