Default NS board choice..........

I'm narrowing down the choices again. Have read a billion threads on NS boards, and am starting to lean toward that direction.
I'm 6'3, size 12 boot, love riding POW, and don't hit the park at all.

Im leaning toward these 3 boards, but can't seem to chose 1;
1) Raptor X 161 (263mm)
2) Premier F1 161 (256mm)
3) Proto CT 160 (255mm)

I think I've chosen to buy Rome Targas too. Anyone have experience with this combo?

cheers

You love pow, and don't hit the park? Get that Proto out of there.

Cobra is another deck that does well in the POW they say. and does well on groomers.

If you don't hit the park at all... drop the Proto CT. I own one and I love it, but it is primarily a park board.

With Size 12 boots, you feet are too big for the F1 (I didn't see a wide version of the F1 on NS's website).

So that leaves you with Raptor X 161. Done. Choice made.

I would have said Raptor for the simple choice that if that is the market of board you are in for, and you are already spending $200+ over budget-priced decks, why not get all the good shit like Carbonium and every tech feature available.
