Good point. I haven't actually ridden the Heritage - so yea it might be "too much board" for someone starting out as the old saying goes

On my last/second trip snowboarding in January I actually ended up demoing an Evo (don't ask me how. I told the folks at the shop that I wanted a demo and I ended up on the Evo without really knowing much about it). I actually enjoyed how easy it was to manipulate, but I did NOT enjoy how damp it was. I had no idea that I was on a board primarily meant for the park.

I was originally leaning toward the SL, then got on the Proto CT hype train (the graphics and topsheet are awesome). Now you guys have me leaning back toward the SL! Guess I just need to make a decision and pull the trigger on one or the other.

I would say the SL as well. The SL is a great deck - I learned to ride on one last and loved it. I went with a Heritage this year and love it... however it would have been too much board for me last year. The SL is definitely more forgiving.

Thanks for the input! Looks like I'm going with the SL. Now the question is what size? 158 or 161? Also, any recommendations on bindings?

not sure what the problem is with your stickers but I haven't had any of my vinyl diecuts begin to come off, not even a corner lifting. I've only put 3 resort days on my proto though.... been riding my horrorscope a lot this year.

the carbonium topsheet apparently chips. the scratch resist is cool but a skier ran over my board at the base lodge today and took a chunk of it off. not like i care but just thought i'd toss it out there incase anyone ever wondered.

the snow was dreamy today, this thing raped the mountain today. i figured out some more sweet spots, and the nollies were insane once i figured out how to really use those v-beams.

took it jibbing as well which is something i normally never do, and after a new wax last night buttering was a dream as well.

quiver killer right hurrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Will do. Thanks again to the folks that pushed me back toward the SL.

Would you guys recommend the 160 ct or the 158 ctx for a 12 size boot 190lbs?
