Pretty much says what most reviews I've seen are saying. A great board that fits into the Never Summer line up nicely.

(Hope you don't mind me jumping on your thread Leo)
Not at all

I'm a Lion, but I'm not territorial

And that wasn't some corny joke. My father actually named me after Leo the Lion haha.

You're not an August birthday are you? Now that would be weird, Leo a Leo!

Strangely my name's not Bob nor Robert and I'm not fat.

Yeah the CT had a small logo on it I did not pay attention if it was a sticker.I had to get that board out of my hands before I bought it.

Hey all! I'M looking to step up in terms of boards. I am currently riding a 156 K2 Raygun. As of now, IM just carving and cruising down hills. I really want to get into the playful things like jibbing, buttering, and small jumps(nothing to big :P). Without sacrificing too much on free ride, this seems to be the board, no? Anyone else have any experience on buttering? Think I saw one person who commented on that in this thread and he said it was good.

Also, im 5'8 about 150-160lbs, size 9 boots. I'M thinking 154? I'M assuming by my boot size, I want the CT not CTX. Any help would be great guys, thanks!

154 CT will definitely be a good size for you. The Proto is my all-around board of choice now. I do a lot of presses and like to butter so it's good enough for that. The Evo is better to press and butter on because of the softer flex, but it also means it's not as stable as the Proto for steeper/faster runs.

Since you sound like you want a board to do a little of everything well, I definitely think the Proto is going to be a sweet choice.

By the time you get really good at things like jibbing, you'll probably want to add another board to your collection by then anyway.

Proto CT all the way for you in my opinion.

Perfect! Looks like this will be my 2012 board! Great review, thanks bro!
btw, what are some good bindings from 2011. Looking to pick up something thats on sale now rather then getting something new later on. OR should I just use my 2011 K2 indys I have now?

based on your experience with the flex and it's performance, how well do you think this thing will do on 40ft + jumps?

@TheCity: I love my Rome 390 Boss on this board. However, if you manage to pick a pair up, I highly suggest you contact Rome right away and ask for replacement ladders and ratchets. Some of us had problems with those. I know it sounds bad, but Rome is awesome and they'll send it promptly. These minor changes results in an absolutely awesome pair of bindings.

Some other bindings I would put on this board:

Ride Delta

K2 Auto Uprise

Flow NXT-ATSE or M9SE

I don't touch jumps that size haha. Did great for all the things I did with it. Gaps and what not. I hit natural kickers through trees on it and it was awesome. The pop is just nice. Some of the sketchy landings rode out. I was easily able to correct my balance on bad landings. There was a run I was doing full speed on and there was a small hip before a transition into a steep run. I sent myself off that and rode out like I didn't even get air. Smooth. Does have a lively feel to it though, but I like that in my boards. I don't like super damp boards where I can't feel anything underfoot. I did the same type of full speed air catching on a boarder X course off a succession of rollers.

BurtonAvenger sent this flying through some kickers that size I believe so it's worth asking him about it.
