It'll ride like a 162 max. That doesn't mean it will handle like one. Just means you have the stability and edge hold of a longer board, but the swing weight of a smaller one.

I'm 6'1", around 210-220..I currently ride an old Rome Agent 158 (maybe an '06?, cambered) which I do really like, but its time for an upgrade. I'm looking for something a little more playful. I probably ride around 80% mountain / 20% park...want a board i can mess around with on the groomers, do ground tricks, hit the rollers, etc. I'm an eastcoaster and don't see too much powder.

After a ton of reading I feel like I've settled on the Proto CT, though I have more recently thinking about the EVO, but I feel it might be a bit too park oriented (I don't do too much jibbing and dont plan to).

So my question for you guys, based on what I've told you, does the Proto seem like a good match for me? I also considered a Ride Machete and I demo'd a Lib Tech TRS last yr which I really liked. How does the proto compare?

Lastly, at ~215lbs, will a 157 do the trick? I'd like to keep the board as short as reasonably possible for the type of riding I do. I'm afraid I might not like the feel of the 160 with its extra long effective edge given the board I've been riding the past 4-5 yrs. Mainly concerned about ability to handle the deep stuff, since thats the only time I'd really need the length. Anyone else out there 200+ on 157 and have no problems in pow?

Thanks!

Finally got my 154 proto ct, after hearing from 4 different stores in Ontario, Canada was sold out of proto. But lucky me I picked up a demo board today at Sanction for $300 like new, no binding circles and it had green sidewalls! White base, black eagle, red logo. You guys should ask if they have demo boards because they don't mention it and they had came up with the price of $300 for a demo board compared to $589+Tax = $660.

My size ?..

Hey peeps..

First of all im from Denmark and aint sure i got all the spelling just right.

Ive got yet another sizing question for the Proto CT since this got to be my next board..

Iím 6.1 and 190-200lbs depending on the christmas and size 9.5 US size boot. ^^

Up until now i have been riding a Flow Infinite 163 and riding like 60% on the slopes (groomed/High speed carving). 25% backcountry and 15% park..

What i want with this board is mainly to have fun on the slopes and hitting som jump in the park and backcountry and maybe some pow.

So question is what way to go the 157 or the 160..

THX.

Sorry I meant southern ontario, like meltdown, hustler, boardsports and a few others around the area said they can't get anymore and said on wednesday they were sold out/unable to order more, sanction is the only one left with a 157 in stock from weeks ago, I don't know if they have an order limit in a contract with neversummer or not

I also noticed that all the stores I called said there were exactly x amount left of size x of proto or heritage, so I'm assuming they all get it from the same supplier
