Hello

Am thinking of pre-ordering a proto in the UK. It seems it may be difficult to demo one here so just wanted opinions on what size to go for?

height 5'9'' (short, v stocky build)
weight 220-230lbs (210 on a very good month )
feet size 11 us (UK 10)
intermediate skill
all mountain and a bit of park
duck stance 15/15 wide

I currently ride a 156 Imperivm Snowboards - DJ VI Series which is great apart from my boots overhang a full inch on both the toe and heel. I have started to get some toe drag on very steep runs with this but never enough to make me face plant.

The Proto CT 157 specs are pretty much the same as the DJVI, wider by a couple of mm so I am looking at that, although the the wide version 158 CTX has also got my attention because of my boot overhang.

Any opinions / help welcome.

Posted a link to part 2 of this review on the first post. You'll see David Z's take on this board as well as a little more info from me about how it rode with different bindings and on different terrain.

Great review guys!
What size boots does David Z wear?

I'm going to go w/ the 154 Evo next season, hopefully my 10.5US will not cause too much toe/heel drag.

Hi Ten,

Maxtrack are the distributers in the UK and I know there is a Proto CT in a 157 and a 158 CTX (I've ridden and reviewed it ) in the UK. You may be lucky and get to try one after the May Board Test in Kaunertal. The 157 seems quite narrow so you may be best on a 158 CTX. You can find a contact on Welcome to Never Summer - Snowboards, Skateboards and clothing | Never Summer Industries if you need any info or PM me.

I linked it at the top of the first post. It's not part 2 per-se, just some more info regarding my other sessions with this board. It also includes my friend's review as well (David Z, it's his blog).

Review on the site includes both of our reviews. This was a super fun board when I finally got to ride it for a full weekend in March. Carves well, jibs well, pretty stable for a twin park-oriented board so you could take it anywhere on the mountain & have fun with it, low swing weight. Just all around fun to ride.

I'd buy it if I had $600 to budget for another deck...
