A mate and I are heading up to Canada for a month and intend on riding all of the good mountains throughout BC and Alberta. At the moment I'm riding a head "force 1 kers" 156, I've been pretty happy with it, it seems to be a good sort of all round board. Ive been riding for about two years on and off, and am reasonably competent on all double blacks now. I love powder, glades and love going as fast as I can! I've been looking a bringing a second board with me and have sort of narrowed it down to two boards, either a proto CT 157 or a cobra 158.
There isn't really anything in particular I don't like about my current board, I just want something that will excell in the conditions we are going to be riding in.
I've read so many positive reviews on both boards, but Im concerned I'm getting ahead of myself and may not even be riding at a high enough level to get the benefits of either of these boards.
Which one would better suited, or am I just wasting money?
