I guess with the 154 and the slightly longer effective edge than my Rice I could even take it out when I'm out west for some fun or on groomer days!

i see a lot of proto guys out here...just wanted to get your thoughts
i got a 160 proto ct and im 6'4'' 210 lbs guy with a 11-11.5 size boots...you think i did ok with the sizing..i think i nailed it because i do all mountain freestyle stuff... meaning i like to boomb down fast down the track and also like to have fun on any feature that i can find..also was spending some time in the park on boxes and jumps...rode with factory 0 degrees bevel..

i guess i wanted to hear your opinions because i little worm is eating me in the back of my head saying that i could've gone with 157 proto..but then again...this is a good do it all stick and maybe the second one can be a bit of a noodle type and then i got it covered...but in all honesty i think proto will be ok for everything

I agree with Snowolf 157 would be too soft at your weight, it would lose a lot of the all mountain feel and be much more park oriented.

You got the right board enjoy it.

Yea, you could have gone with a 157... but the 160 was a MUCH better choice for you. The 157 wouldn't have been satisfying for you on the occasions you like to bomb runs.

that is exactly what i said to myself...didn't want to neglect that freeride component of my snowboarding,progressed so much with this stick past season its unreal..easily going through forest between the ski lift on black tracks in some icy conditions(it took some time to get buy the guys that are working on skilifts but it was worth it ))

thanks again for all the help,im really pleasantly surprised how upfront and honest everybody here is, but thats what i like about the us winter freeks,cool pips enjoying the wildness

I'm new and wanting some input. I moved to Denver and got 8 days in last year, prior to that, it had been 12 years since I had been on a board.

I bought a season pass this year and I'm looking for a different board. Last year, I rode a GNU Park Pickle 153 (it always felt a little squirrely).

I'm 5'9", 170-178 lbs, size 9 boot. I just bought last season's Nike Kaijus. I'm looking at NS boards and I really want to pull the trigger on the Proto CT 157.

Please give me your thoughts.

Here's what I like: I like to go all over the mountain, I like to race with friends, I really want learn to butter/jib this year, I'll do a little park riding, very small jumps and some rails, and definitely some woods riding.

I doubt it matters but I have the ride rodeo bindings from last year. Because I'm still learning, I don't know how to rate them. They held my foot in but I'd usually have to ratchet them down at the beginning of a new run.

I'm looking forward to opening day!

Park Pickle 153 at 180 lbs? Yea... not surprised that board is a little squirrelly for you.

I'm 5'9 ~155 lbs size 8 boots and I ride the Proto CT 154.

157 Proto CT will work for what you want to do. If you are doing more freeriding/treeriding ... than butter/jibs... might consider the Cobra - especially if you still have the Park Pickle.

Thanks man, I appreciate the help.

I pulled the trigger on the 157, selling the pickle.

I just picked up a 158 Proto... I was riding a 154 Evo at 200 to 210 pounds depending on my gym rat time of year. Same problem you had, 154 was too small for my weight and got squirrelly at times. I had to go bigger.
