So... Should I aim for a 150 or a 152 Evo? Just to re-state, 5'9" 110 lbs. I'll be using it all-mountain, so would going a bit longer with the 152 be the idea?

I'd do the 150. Technically, you can go lower than that at your weight, but you are light for your height.

Looking for some input on this board. Going out to utah next season and looking to replace my 2011 skate banana 156w with the proto ctx 155? Any advice for me on this board? Seems like a legit quiver killer. Does anyone recommend keeping the banana over the proto for utah or should i just try and get rid of it?

I am leaning towards the 155 as I am 6'1" 155lbs and I have heard it rides a little longer. I'm probably about a 50/50 split between park and freeriding. I like to rip and do some jibbing here and there and I mess around with jumps up to like 40ft.

hey there leo great review i'm thinking of getting the proto whenever it comes out( if anyone knows how i can get my hands on one early like some people have already would really like to know) as for size i could use some help.
i'm 5'10 1/2. 183lbs but on a diet so that is dropping and will until the season starts. i have a gnu 157 now and was wondering if i should try a little shorter or stay at 157 for the proto.
planing on doing mostly groomers. but would like to start jibbing and buttering while hitting small/medium jumps.not doing any big kickers till i get more comfortable with jumps
thanks for any advice guys

The proto tends to ride a little longer, the 154 feels more like 156ish to me. I think most shops will be shipping them early August.

Daddies board shop is shipping aug 1st
Colorado ski shop ships early august
bcsurf says in stock, but not sure if they are shipping them (never ordered anything from them)

Nope, daddies board shop has an account on this forum. I think I recall them sometimes posting discounts and stuff too. I usually try to buy local, but I don't think my local shop will be getting any NS Infinity's in, and I will probably order one for my gf from daddies in a few days or so.

I've bought NS from Daddies before, no problems with them.
