Default Okay I Narrowed it Down to 3!

Hey Guys,

Coming from an traditional Camber board, I'm looking for something more playful and different. I've been riding a 2007 Burton custom. I want to keep the board still All mountain capable, but with a tad towards the playful side. I have 2012 Cartel Bindings.

Narrowed it down to:
Never Summer Proto
Lib Tech Attack Banana
Gnu Riders Choice

Leaning towards the proto, but the Attack Banana is close behind.

What do you guys think?

Riders choice over attack banana. Proto just barely over riders choice for cost if the extra cost.

The riders choice is a good 120 cheaper then the proto is it worth it?

Should i be throwing the T.Rice in the mix? I was looking at it, but it seemed a little stiff for what I want.

The RC is definitely playful, going to be stiffer than the proto, more like an SL but less damp. I'd put it right between a proto and SL in terms of playfulness but probably just a bit more all mountain capable. Can't go wrong with either though

I own 2 of the 3 you listed (see sig) and its a tough call. I love both in slightly different ways. My Gnu RC kills it on icy/hardpack days and is a little more playful while the Proto has the faster base and more stability when landing jumps.

Damn this is tough. The Riders Choice color combo doesnt go with my outfit. I have grey pants and blue jacket...White boots with red accents.

Also, what does Blem-2013 mean on the EVO website.

It seems there is a GNU Riders choice for 20% off then there is one for 30% off that says Blem-2013..

I get trying to match your clothing, but once you get down to the board worrying about matching is silly imo. The Lib Tech TRS is a very similar board to the RC if you're looking for another option.

Blem means it has a minor cosmetic defect from the factory. They sell them for cheaper but it won't affect performance.
