I have an evo and I love it. I've ridden a Proto for 2 days and it felt noticeably stiffer and more work to turn at first but then was hammering around with guys all on SLs and Heritages off piste and the Proto seemed to handle everything fine. And liked how it didn't get thrown about by the harder/lumpy snow as bad. But then switched back to my Evo and just loved how playful it was!! Just fun to butter up the piste, spin 1's etc. That was my 3rd week on the snow so really just still taking it all in...

Fast forward a (snow)week and I'm bombing everything like crazy on the evo, but the conditions are getting slushy and lumpy. The Evo is starting to feel short (154 @ 170lb) and a bit soft for the riding i'm doing. I wasn't getting overtaken by many people towards the end of that week but I was having to put a lot of work in with the legs...

So I'm feeling a Proto or Sl is going to be the more versatile board for me this season. Hope that perspective helps in some way.
