Im the same weight and shoe size as you. I have the 158 flow era. I find it to be a bit small for what you are looking for but doable. A little small for pow days. However mine is from the year before they blunted it so maybe it will be a bit better now?

I have a 160 blacklist that should do what you want. I have not ridden it pow yet however. If you are in the usa there is one on gear trade for a smoking deal.

I'm looking for an alternative to the Proto, which I love but it seems maybe I'm missing out on some other great boards... My knees are old. I have an Evil Twin that is stiffer yet not at all damp it bucks all over, so by comparison I'm looking for something that will provide a bit of a smoother ride.

I'm also 6'-4" 205lb, size 12 but I still prefer a traditional camber board. I mainly ride East Coast hard pack, some powder up North if I'm lucky and about 10% park. I still have a K2 Zeppelin Wide 163 that is my go to board. I also have a NS Legacy I bought new and rode for about 2 days but didn't really like it. Having learned on a camber board I just can't get used to these hybrid decks. I'm probably gonna sell the Legacy and maybe pick up a Slayblade, Arbor Roundhouse CX or Jones Aviator.
