You're going to love the Proto.
i personally disagree he claims he rides park mostly... ion and slx are going to be way stiff.... i would prolly go with burtion hails or grails for the nice articulting cuffs, and they are both very well padded and comfortable boots... more comfortable on the hails, but more response from the grail

Yeah, each to their own. I don't find my Ion's too stiff for park - Jumps/boxes(although I don't do too many rails). I doubt jibbing would be high on his agenda after deciding to get a Proto.

Interesting... Evo is better on the rails, Proto better on the jumps. Both are very good in both aspects though. You'll love it either way.

I personally use the restricted Hails. Took a little getting used to because they are the softest boots I ever owned. I absolutely love them now because they are super comfy. Try on a lot of boots and get the one that fits the best.

i got the hails too... just not restricted... because they are just super comfy... and it seems that with the articulating cuffs they are not too soft....

hey guys i have the chance of getting a never summer with good price

I wanted a proto 157 but they are sold out....

Do you think the 158 CTX for my 10.5 burton ion would be too wide? does it slow much edge to edge?

or a proto 160? but i read it rides like a 163....

Or should i go to 158 or 161 SL ? ( 1.86m and 95 kg )

thanks

So you weigh 200lb+. I'd do a 160 Proto. No CTX. It's too wide for for your boot size. And man, you're tall!

Nope. Different footbed is all. Restricted has EST footbed. It has less bulk.
