Just bought my first NS. I got the Military Edition Cobra and will be mounting my white Forum Republics on her. Can't wait.

I think it is a ok - it is a Banana Magic after all (the only Lib board that I am really jonesing for - unlike NS where I have ~3 on my 'must try' list but sadly will probably not get the chance to ride).

Thanks for the info. I've been so happy with 32, probably have to be pried off my feet to switch.

2009/2010 NS Evo

I joined this forum originally looking for advise on a new board, being totally out of the loop on technology and brands. I rode an Atomic Hatchet for years, but was interested in what the world of non-traditional camber had to offer.

Of course, my fellow forum members pointed me towards Never Summer. After some stressful deliberation I went with the Evo. Since then my Hatchet has occupied the dark recesses of my closet, because the Evo is just so much fun to ride.

For me personally, my riding improved immediately after getting on the thing because I wasn't constantly leery of catching an edge and face slamming. Despite it being labelled as a "park" board, the thing handles the mountain like a dream and makes freeriding more creative and exciting. Couldn't be happier with my Never Summer.

Great descriptions. Love it when those camber zones kick in. Can't wait to lay down some carves. You carve, you carve, no slide.

I'm sure if you win we could arrange something. Sounds like a Summit or Raptor might compliment the freampow quiver.

Glad you like the black version.

Thanks for the support and good look with the contest.


Thats the answer I was hoping for.

Now I will be having dreams about the 161 summit until the winner is announced.

The proto does remarkably well in say 40 to 50cm of pow, but some days its more like twice or even 3 times that here in Japan.

A summit should keep me floating above and allow me to get deeper into the BC which is one of my goals for this next season.

I Was searching for a new board to take to bigger resorts. A more jack of all trades board. Been interested in the RC profile for along time but could never afford it. Got a good deal on a 2012 158 SL and am stoked to try it out this year! Never stop hearing good things about what Never Summer is doing.

I love the Proto CT with the RC technology. I feel it offers a great blend of rocker playability and camber stability. Plain and simple, the combination makes it fun to ride!
