Exclamation Snowboard Sizing HELP

Hi,

I'm a 5'8 Male weighing 145 Pounds.
I recieved the 152 Never Summer Proto CT (Waist 24.4) last christmas along with large Burton Freestyle bindings and 2010 Nike Zoom Kaijus Size 11s.
Last season, I've been doing a lot of runs, jumps and mostly going down the mountain with speed. Every once in a wild I also like to hit in the park for a little bit.

However, the problem is that my friends are telling me my boots are too big for my board creating toe/heel drag.I guess I have recieved some, but not as much because I usually do quick turns.

Looking through my local shop, I'm able to trade in my 152 Proto CT for a 152(Waist 24.4) Proto CTX( Waist 25.8) for $50 More.

Based on the specifications and the pictures blow of my current Proto CT, do you think I should make the trade for the wider board or should i stick with the the narrow one I have. I'm moving more towards black diamond runs next year and more buttering next year.

Best,

-Ryan

Looks like your run a duck stance. Try on your gear at home and see how far you can go on your toe before it catches but from the pictures it looks like it'll take a lot for it to catch.

Difficult to tell from those pix (hint: take picture from 'below' the board and/or head-on), but does not look like you have an overhang problem. You probably would have to be tilting the board like a Eurocarver to have any real toe/heel drag.
