I just received my Proto CT from BC Surf and Skate and it came with the black base. I didn't order it this way nor expect it but I'm damn stoked!

sl is far from a freeride oriented board, IMO. After around 25-30 days on my sl-r it started to soften up, by the time it had ~90 days when I sold it it had gotten quite soft, like nose press to the moon soft if I really layed into one. With the changes to the core the last couple of years i'm not sure how one would break in now, but its something to think about.

thanks for any help
Eh, I'm the wrong person to ask for detuning advice. I have never detuned any of my edges and I've only sharpened my edges once on my second board I owned.

I'm not a jibber (I just 50/50 logs and some boxes), but I can see detuning being beneficial for jibs. I really don't think you need to bother detuning right now. Ride it first and see what you'll be doing in the park. If you really start to get into jibs, then ask the park rats for detuning advice. Otherwise, just ride the thing and make sure you wax regularly.

If you use the board for free riding and jibbing, I would put the 88 degree bevel on the side to match that 2 degree base bevel to keep a 90 degree edge.

So the Proto CTX comes with a 2 degree base bevel from the factory? If so, what side bevel does it come with?

It comes from Never Summer with a straight 90/0 degree edge.
