I'm confident it can handle pow. The foot we got here the other week rode beautifully with the Proto.

As for cliff dropping, 5-8 is no biggy. I'm sure it can handle it fine. Go bigger and I'd want something stiffer under my feet. I did some in Tahoe on my mid-stiff Turbo Dream (same as you, 5-8ft) and it was smooth as a baby elephant's bottom. Well, my TD does have harsmellow though

Keep in mind, Travis Rice goes friggen huge on this board off of cliffs. On the Never Summer side, I'm inclined to think the Raptor or even Heritage is better suited to that type of big mountain riding.

Angry Snowboarder's intern jibbed with it and said it was good on the rails.

No, I'd group it with the Skate Banana, TRS, and Park Pickle... I like the Proto much more than all of those.

I dont know if it has simular.(havent tried mag) But Vario grip HOLDS through it all pretty damn good. The other day everything was ice, it was like concrete. The Vario grip held like a mofo. I didnt have a single prob with it during that sesh.

From someone whoes used to ridding ice, vario holds amazingly.

Yea, I ride ice all the time too. Vario works plain and simple. Magnetraction does too.

By the way, the Proto has a hybrid rocker unlike the Park Pickle and Skate Banana.
