SL describes it as a twin shape. that would mean the sidecut as well. It's best to contact NS, but again, who would notice a 1/2" setback. If you are good enough to notice it, you're good enough to ride it too IMO.
I threw in an email to NS re: the Proto's flex, as well as the SL "true twin capability" with regards to it's sidecut. I'll post up their reply.

THE REPLY: and may I say WOW, how quick they were to respond. VERY IMPRESSED!!!!!!!!!

(Copy and Pasted)

Hello! I have a few questions that I was unable to locate answers for online.

The Proto: Is it a TRUE TWIN? It states it is on the website but some of the reviews I read state that it is Directional twin with regards to flex pattern.

The SL - (a) Are the shape and sidecut twin? (b) what about flex pattern? I have read that if you shift the bindings forward the SL is essentially true twin, however if the sidecut is NOT true twin, it would not become a true twin if I slid the binding forward to a cantered stance.

Im getting one or the other for sure - cant make up my mind :-)

thank you!

Hi Marc,

The Proto CT is a true twin in every way, sidecuts, flex patterns, and binding stance. The SL is a directional twin, so it has symmetrical sidecuts and flex patterns with the binding stance slightly set back. If you move the bindings forward, you will get a ride like that of a true twin. Hope this helps!

Thanks for the support of NS!




....AND NOW my decision is that much harder, LOL!
