Thanks for writing that review, it was well written and I enjoyed reading it! The thing I don't like about my SL is that it's not playful enough, I never understood how everyone else made buttering look so damn easy until I tried the Proto, it seriously blew my mind! I think the 157 would be too much board for me due to how I plan on using it.

good deal. I think you'll be very happy with the 54 then!

I'm 6'2 about 92kgs (200lb) and looking at the proto in either the 157 or 160. I ride about 30% park and 70% the rest. Looking to get more in the park these days. Have size 11 boots ( have ions, keen for something softer like hails). Do you guys think a 157 will be sweet?

I had the same question when i bought my board earlier this year. You have to be careful with the Proto because although it may be a 157cm board in length, the edge is actually similar to a 162. I am 6'5 and riding the 157 so i think you should be fine. It may feel short but the long edge will make up for it.

57 will suit you if you want to do more park.

MY Proto came into the shop - I'm going with the 54. I'm 5'7", 170lbs so I think it should work

Can't wait for snow now dammit!

Can people chime in about bindings, because I just ordered the 157 and I can't decide on bindings. I figured it keep it on this thread and not start yet another Proto thread.

Basically, are Targas going to be too stiff? I love their cap strap more than the 390 Bosses, or should I just stick with the 390s and be done with it?

I am not hitting the park, just the kickers. But I do want a fun lively ride on the slopes, butters, presses, hitting rollers etc.. Think all mountain frisky.

Or are Fluxes that good? Because the DMCC Lights look killer but are so damn expensive compared to the 390 Bosses. I'm guessing the DS30s are probably too soft?

Help me out please!

Do you guys think size 11 burton boots ( with shrinkage tech) will be ok on the 157? The waist width is 25.3 and i ride 15, -9 about 22.5 apart.

You'll be perfectly fine. My friend David here rode my 157 Proto with his size 11 boots from ThirtyTwo brand.
