In my opinion, yes. It is still softer in the middle though. I think the low profile tips give off the illusion of being less playful too. Presses aren't as high, but I feel way more stable doing them on the HD.

It's not substantially less playful so don't get me wrong. Just noticeable when you switch between the CT and HD.

What do you think of the Proto HD for an intermediate rider who never goes in the park, natural jumps only? I spent a lot of time in the trees last time. Probably 70% off in the trees 30% on groomed stuff.

The Proto HD is awesome in the trees. Though I prefer the Evo over it because I'm usually messing around in there.

I think the HD would be right up your alley. Kills the groomers and is a lot of fun in the trees. As for jumping, it's my go-to board for that. The pop is excellent and everything from take-off to landing feels solid.

Great, thanks for the feedback. I was set on the SL, but then heard a lot of good things about the Proto HD on here. I like how it's lighter. I actually prefer the white on the 2014 SL to the 2014 Proto graphics... But I'm not getting it to look at

A lot of love is gained from the carbonium topsheet alone. So you might end up liking the Proto HD's topsheet and graphics better once it's in your hands.

I did like the topsheet on the CT's I looked at, I guess if I get the Proto HD I'll save a few bucks not having to buy a stomp pad. It's a pretty cool texture.

How is it in Pow? Yes I know it's a twin

Don't get a lot of pow days here (i think I've had one in four years of being a weekend warrior) but I'd still like to know if its something I can bring with me on Japan/USA trips, I won't be getting dropped off at the top of some Alaskan mountain or anything like that but would be nice to know whether my leg will be burning trying to get down the bottom after a big snow dump.
