The Proto def handles. I drop the chute at 50mpg regularly. It's such a fun board for the conditions out here. The thing rips the hardpack.

I didn't even try it on the Evo. Too much torsional flex. It gets way too loose at higher speeds. Conditions would really have to be ripe. It's just not what it's made for.

yea i was never big on gunning it til i got the alpine replay app and i could check my top speeds..i hit 35mph on the evo but all i could think the entire time was "you better be CAREFUL cause youre about 2 seconds from eating shit"... it made me realize that though the board does ALMOST everything I want, I wouldnt mind something a little stiffer and poppier for all mountain.

thanks for the info man.

What will change from the current SL to the 2014? I think I've found my first snowboard, that thing looks sweet and I'm ready to quit using rentals!

I hit 43 mph on the Cobra last week, and my buddy who hits 50 with a skate banana was testing my other friend's 2013 '54 proto and was zooming right by me.

Shit with the new and improved shape on the Proto designed to help it float better I might not even need a Cobra anymore. Might spring for a '14 Proto and get it over with.

I have never seen so many people say they are going to buy a board like I have seen about the '14 proto.

Extremo, you and the boys better put in a word with NS to manufacture a warehouse full of these suckers.

I hit 50 on the revolver.. according to the app on my phone anyway. It was probably more like 45, but that was after the just groomed and it was smooth as butter.

Yeah, this was Mammoth ungroomed ugly stuff on some parts, smooth and soft in others, crud, and the occasional mogul mine field.

What kind of phone? I find the variations between speeds to be caused by different phones, moreso than the apps (i.e. two apps read the same speed on one phone, while the same app is wildly different between two phones).
