Which Board should i buy?
hello guys, i am looking to buy a new board for this upcoming season. I have a list of boards that interest me because of their purpose and graphic. I will be riding mainly park but also all mountain at mammoth lakes, CA. I am 5' 10" 170. My boot size is a 11.5/12 US. And i will need some help on what size of board also. So my first choice is the proto ctx. I like this board because of its hybrid rocker/camber profile. Also the wide base. I have researched this board for years, and i have seen that this board has a 6 flex (perfect amount for me) the reviewers have also stated that this board is perfect for all mountain/ park. now here are the others boards, i will save time and not explain them.
GNU Park Pickle
Scott Stevens Pro Model Capita
Stepchild Latchkey
Stepchild Joe Sexton
NS Proto CTX
NS Evo
Signal Park Camber

skill level: intermediate-advacned. I ride double blacks all day, and im starting to learn the basics of rails/bigger jumps. I ride mammoth so the park is advanced/intermediate. Sorry for not adding.

thanks and please explain why i should get which board you think. :)

I would stray from the Stepchild boards, build quality has declined. That is just my opinion.

If you are looking for one board to do it all:

NS Proto is the winner here I think. Midrange flex, good for the mountain and the park. Build quality is there as well.

Man this is such broad question. No mention on skill level, favorite type of terrain etc means internet suggestions may not be of much use.

I would say since you have been researching the NS Proto for years and you like the reported flex pattern just pull the trigger on that one. The NS group of guys make great products and you're supporting local Denver, CO business. The only downside of NS in my opinion is their graphics. I find them to be some of the worst in the industry but that is just my opinion. Others may really like them.

sorry about not posting the skill level, but thanks for your patience. And yeah thats what im thinking of doing actually. My friend recently bought a NS revolver and is in love with it. And its the same rocker/camber profile of the proto.

you think so? and i would go for the latchkey, but their boards seem too small. sounds good!
