IMO, the Proto pretty much makes the SL obsolete. I'm not sure why anyone would go SL > Proto if buying new. NS is wise to keep it around as it's been their most popular board, but from an objective standpoint, there's really no reason to pick it over the Proto.

IMO, the NS portfolio is starting to get pretty crowded. If I was a one board guy, for the way I primarily ride, I'd be struggling to choose between the Proto, Cobra, and Heritage. I could make a strong argument for all of them, but I'd probably end up going Cobra. Not sure what the hell that had to do with this thread. Sorry for rambling.
That's a bummer to hear...I just purchased a 155 SL. Wonder if I should have gotten a proto instead.

Depends on your riding style. The SL/Legacy was a better fit for me.

If you're riding in east TN, I don't think it really matters.

Just be happy when you actually do have something resembling snow to slide around on.

one of these days I'm going to convince my wife to move away from her family and move out west where I can actually get on some real snow!

Nah, I respect you guys that hang in there and ride on bullshit. I grew up in western NC within an hour or so of 3-4 slopes and I never rode until moving to CO. Just didn't seem worth it.

I'm guessing you're talking about Cataloochie, Beech, Sugar and the like?

I head up to Cat every now and then (about 2 hour drive) since they get snow down a lot sooner than in TN. It's not too bad.

Sure beats the alternative of not riding at all
