Mine is arriving Tuesday and I can't wait even though I won't be able to ride it.

L3monhead yah you're right I'm not familiar w/ reflex binders thanks for that.
But these bindings will have the same problem with any 4x4 or 4x2.

Lucas they do post the min/max stance on the board as part of the spec sheet (donkt they?) And then you can determine what stance options are possible based on the insert pattern.

From what I see there is a lot of people here who already have this board in size 154. One measurement is enough because other holes are 2cm's from each other and without messing with the set back (it is twinn so i want to keep it that way) in case of re:Flex bindings it gives you stance options every 4cm (2 cm's on the side).

You're my weight and that's the size I ride. I use the Proto for all-mountain freestyle.

I have a question regarding holes pattern on 154 size and stance options. The reason why I'm asking is because I will use it with burton cartel re:flex bindings which as all of reflex bindings have limited (to one) stance options in their discs. In this case my only stance options are limited to those coming from board.

Thanks, Lucas
I'm not 100% sure, but I think his concern might be what reference stance is. Without micro adjustments your options are either to go up/down 1.5" inches in stance width or 3/4" if you're willing to / want to mess with reference set-back. I would have similar concerns if I had Reflex bindings... enough that I might switch them out for Forum "good vibes" discs (which do have micro adjustment front-to-back but are hinged).

Reference on the 157 Proto and my 158 SL is 21.5". Assuming a 155 Proto has the same insert widths (not 100% sure on that, but seems reasonable), your options with a centered stance and Reflex bindings would be 20", 21.5", 23", and 24.5".

Here's a pic of the base.
Just received my Proto (white base) -- very excited, but I noticed that mines does not have "NS" on the base, unlike like Leo's pictures.

In any case, the carbonium topsheet is just gorgeous.

Got to say I love the topsheet, it just has that feeling of quality in it. The matte carbon fibre look helps to hide any scratches, if indeed there are any (haven't bothered to have a close look yet).

As far as comments I had read somewhere previously that you don't need a stomp pad on these carbonium topsheets, I found when riding a T-bar that my free foot could still slide around easily enough. I guess there's some measure of extra traction, but it's not like the topsheet grips like velcro or anything. That being said, I'll still make do without a stomp rather that put one on the nice looking topsheet, lol.

I make do with a regular board without a stomp pad so the carbonium should be fine.

Anyone want to trade a '10 Banana Magic 157 (+ cash) for a 154 Proto?

I love the Magic... but I think I need something a bit smaller/lighter.
