Not at all. Sounds about right. If you do a lot of jibbing, you can even go a size smaller. Remember, the blunted tips means it rides like a couple cms longer.

Oh, I thought we were in the Evo thread lol. Duuuuhh.

So He's probably not looking to jib much so 152 is good.

It'll be a little stiffer.. Definelty not too big though.. I just got the 155 wide, I weigh a little less than 190 at the moment and I was a little suprised at how stiff it is

Wide models are always stiffer. All else but boot size equal, a 155w will be stiffer than a 155 reg for two riders.

Wider models support a bigger weight range than their regular width counterparts. So if I'm on a 160 regular and you weigh the same but with big feet... you can go down to a 155w and we should experience similar flex.

In theory that is since I don't ride wide boards lol.

Hey everyone, i think i've asked this question a few times but don't think anyone has answered yet.

I am probably going to get the 152 Proto CT but I have a size 10 boot. I ride goofy with a 24.5" stance angled 15/-12. Should get away with the CT or should I get the CTX

The CT waste is listed at 24.4 vs the CTX at 25.8

Wanted to add that I'm actually hesitant towards getting a CTX and would prefer riding the regular model.

+1 this question. I'm wearing a US size 11 and wondering if I can get away with the 152 CT.

I ride a 150 evo, and 154 proto with size 10.5 boots and no problems. I usuaully ride 15/-15 sometimes 18/-15, and a 22" stance.

I measured the proto 154, at the centre of the bindings is 26.2cm. The evo 150 is about 25.4.

You guys will be fine. You are listing the waist width. It'll be wider at the insert point.

I had high profile size 10 boots and my previous boards were all under 25cm at the waist (I like deeper sidecuts).

I be rockin that steezed duck 18/-12 @ 23.5"
