Are you still growing?

152 would be a more freeride orientated size for you.

So I'm strongly considering spending $100 more just to get the LTD edition graphics... I think they would look excellent paired with my black Now IPOs

Well, if you got the dough, why not?

Got to ride my Proto finally on NYE... Love it... Paired it up with some Vita's and I had a badass night. Good start to the season.

Question Help me please!

Hopefully some knowledgeable people are still watching this thread. I am going to be purchasing a Never Summer Proto CTX probably today and was wondering if you could help me on sizing. I am 6' and 165 pounds to start with. I currently ride an old cambered Morrow Revert X 157 just so you know where I am coming from (I know, OLD BOARD 1997). I am looking at either getting the CTX in a 155 or a 158. I need the CTX version due to my size 12 Nike Kaiju's and Never Summer suggests I ride a wide. I mainly do freeride and freestyle as I live in the midwest, but I try to take an annual Mountain trip out west. I am actually going to Crystal Mountain in Washington Friday-Sunday this weekend! With all of this in mind, since I have heard with the blunted tips make this board ride like it is 3cm longer than normal, what would you suggest that I purchase? 155 or 158? My other option is the Legacy, but I have never had a true twin tip, so I am not fully sure... I think I want to try something different since it would be nice to learn to ride switch better...

155 in my opinion all the way. I'm 180lbs and ride a 157. I wouldn't want it any bigger.

The 157 is a more freeride orientated size for your weight.

I agree with Leo. I was surprised how well the 154 I demoed did for my 200lbs weight. If I can ride that then the 155 should be fine for you.

Leo, a 157 isn't an option for me as I need the CTX which only comes in 155 or 158 in my size range. Do you think I would have any issues with stability on the 155? Keep in mind, I do like to bomb runs sometimes just for fun, but for the most part I am just carving at a fast pace. I like speed, but I love to pop off any roller or jump whenever I find one. Also keep in mind that I will be using this an an all-mountain board whenever I go out west with the chance to hit powder... I can't afford multiple boards, nor do I go enough to justify it, hence why it has taken me this long to upgrade my boards! ha ha! Thanks again for the fast responses.

Mysticfalcon - How tall are you? Just wondering so I can gauge the difference between us.

That's why he suggested the 155. I'd say go 155, I feel like 158 would be overkill if you mainly ride smaller hills.
