26.1 is simply much too wide for a size 9 boot. You shouldn't go over 25.5 cm waist.
In fact, with a size 9 boot should not go over 25 cm WW (depending on the sidecut radius, of course - in case of the Proto both the 25.1cm on the 154 and the 24.4cm on the 152 would work for the guy).

That. And the fact that it will be much more difficult to pressure the edge effectively, compromising edge hold.

What is your intended use? 152 is really short for your weight. That's a jibbing size for you.

You weigh what I weighed at the time of this review. 157 is an all-mountain orientated size for that weight. 154 would be a good freestyle size. I personally wouldn't go shorter than a 54.

I would like to just have 1 board for everything.
I have a 156 custom x and a 155 sierra reverse crew right now but wanna sell both and have 1 board for everything. I don't do rails but i do go on boxes and the jumps and trying to get more into the freestyle stuff. Never really tried too much until now because all I wanted to do was go fast when I started snowboarding. I will eventually try a few rails though.

Would love some advice from you guys. I have a 2013 Proto 157. I'm 5'9" @ 200 pounds. Have always ridden traditional camber boards and been riding for 20+ years. I love everything about my Proto but at SPEED/straight bombing runs it feels, for lack of a better word, sketchy. I'm much more of an all mountain rider than park and at times feel I have over powered the Proto in turns as well. When I bought the 157 I had a Premier 165 which I have since had to sell. So my question is should I go Proto 160 or SL 161. I LOVE the pop of the Proto and how light and playful it is. Would I lose that with a 2013 SL?
Thanks in advance for your time and feedback.

Hey guys, im fairly new to the sport and need some advice.

Im trying to decide between the Evo and the Proto. I weigh around 180-190lbs ,size 10.5 K2 Ryder boots and 5ft 10in tall. I am more inclined towards the freestyle spectrum of things however i am just learning small jumps in the park, ideally i would like to ride 60% all mountain and 40% park.

I would prefer a board thats more fun than a straight out charger.

The main questions I have are , how much harder is it to butter and press on the Proto compared to the evo?

and how much more unstable is the evo at high speeds compared to the proto?Will the evo be sufficient as an all mountain board to go down black slopes and stuff?

Haven't ridden the Proto (but have the Evo). You can learn to butter the Proto, but you can't learn to un-chatter the Evo. I'd go Proto if I were you.

Thanks for the advice man, definitely leaning towards the proto.

I though I read in Leo's review that the Evo 4.0 doesn't have as much chatter in it due to the HD tech.
