Burton Antler vs NS Proto CT/CTX
I have been looking at the burton antler and the ns pro to ct/ctx for a good all around mountain board. The proto seem like an awesome board I am digging the 3 year warranty, but I also like the idea of the burton antler being between a joystick and custom x. The downside of the antler is the only place I can find a review on the antler is Burton Antler Snowboard Snowboard Review 2013 - YouTube
I live in minneapolis, minnesota. I will be going to local hills 90% of them time. (Normally decent snow, but almost always groomers).
Groomers: This is a must for a board. I will be mainly going down flat snowboard runs. I want to have fun going down. Buttering is something I want to progress into this winter.
Jibs: don't care much about this right now. Might do 5% of my time on a board doing this.
Buttering: This is something I would like to get into. I am new to it, but in minnesota, it is something that can bring joy to the hills. We are flat here, but some places capitalize on this and buttering can become and art here. Flat long runs are around here.
Overall Park: plan on doing jumps/kickers. Not to many rails at all. 180/360's are what I want to do on natural terrain.
What I want: A fun ride. Knowing I am not going to be in Colorado or anywhere with serious hills like that, what you would you suggest?
