A black topsheet would look super sick on this thing. I'd love to see pictures if they confirm this idea.

I was originally set on a 157 Proto but after BA rode the 154 and said it was good for charging, I'm second guessing my first choice. The 154 would be appealing for it's maneuverability but I wouldn't want to loose any stability for bombing down runs. As others have said, a few cm's shouldn't really make that big of a difference but I plan on making this my main board for a long while so I want to squeeze every ounce of "best fit for me" out of it.

Anyone have suggestions?
At your weight and what you're looking to do... If I were you, I'd definitely get the 154.

I think a black topsheet would look pretty sick and make the colors on the Proto pop, but... it will also blend in with the rest of their carbonium boards since they are all black. I'd still personally choose white for that fact. White carbonium looks sick.

They should do a carbon fiber colored carbonium topsheet. That would be really awesome.

Thanks Leo.

Hmmm, carbon fiber carbonium topsheet... new ideas for 2013 possibly?

The black carbonium topsheet on the Heritage and Raptor already looks like carbon fiber.

No sir, it doesn't. Carbon fiber has a silver/gray tint to it.
