This or the SL would definitely be the best contenders for your next ride. The Proto is a twin while the SL is a directional twin with more dampening.

Personally, I'd do the Proto to keep things playful unless you are dead certain that you are going to stay away from freestyle.

In that case, actually I'd say get the Heritage.

So wait, you want to compare a slightly tapered, set back, freeride board (Raptor) with True Twin, center stance board (Banana Magic) as being comparable?
Ha, that is hilarious.

Said I'm guessing for a reason. I've never been on the raptor. I'm talking from a flex stand point. Don't know the specs of raptor or exact flex for that matter. Would have to look at the catalog for that.

Also from the angle of being a freeride board. Actually, guess I would consider the Magic a stiffer all-mountain freestyle.

Is this BA's intern?

Raptor = Billy Goat or C2 Dark Series no where near as close as the Banana magic.

My guess was plainly wrong. Thanks for the clarification BA.

Because you haven't started your 100 days of reviews yet

Serious answer: Snowolf stickied them.

Damn bro, you on your rag or something? What's with this sudden hard on for attacking me? Think what you want, I told you all I had to say. If you don't believe me, then its in your own little head.

Funny how you call my review all rainbows yet your own review talks nothing, but positive things about the same board. All this because I thanked Vince and Tracey in my review? And saying I "guess" about some board comparison? Wow man.

I do nothing to provoke you and yet you pick a fight. Kind of like that Locals article you did about the tourists that start bar fights for no reason.

You bring up this whole Never Summer thing, yet you say nothing about all my other love I show for boards like TD, Machete, and Banana Magic. And now you're giving me crap because a mod stickied this post? I had nothing to do with that and I'll let Snowolf explain himself.
