If you're worried about the Evo coping whole mountain - I rode it in the Alps and it handled everything just fine, steep blacks, charging, off-piste, sheet ice, moguls etc. The only thing that really gave it trouble was frozen rutted off piste conditions (like a frozen ploughed field) but I don't really blame the board there (at my level anyway) it was unridable.

However charging in slushy conditions particularly did push the board around a fair bit and I had to put in a lot of work and pick lines around things rather than through it.

When I tried the Proto, I immediately appreciated the extra stiffness in the board over anything lumpy though. It was still ok to butter and press.

Getting back on the Evo afterwards was super fun though - it is a playful board


The Proto 154 sounds like a good match for you. Either will do the riding you want just, with the sweetspot being a little nearer to each end of the scale.

Anyway FWIW I'm on an SL 155 for this season as I really only dabble in the park.

Okay, like Richie67 said, you really won't notice much of a difference. And, because you aren't past 6', I think you'll certainly be fine with the 154--that's what I would go with. ^^

What about me? I'm a size 9.5 boot, 172lbs and 5'7". I've heard the since the flex is rather soft on the Proto CT or new HD would that affect my board size? 154 or 157?
