For such a big saving I would go with the Proto CT personally, the HD is better for all mountain, but its not a totally different board by any means. I loved my Proto CT too.

I was all set on the Yes Asym for next year until I read this thread.

I had the Proto last year until it got stolen so I am not sure if I want another Never Summer.....

Sizing question. Picking up my hd tommorow.

77 kg (170 lbs)
170 cm (5'7)
Size 9 burton rulers
90% groomers 10% park in Australian conditions which means ice sheets in winter and slush in spring.
Annual trip to Japan or North America

Looking at either 152 or 154. Any suggestions?

I'm pretty similar size to you and have ordered a 154. If this is your quiver killer board and you are using it overseas you may even want to go bigger

Definitely at least 154. For Japan more like 157.

As others have said at least the 154.

I weigh more or less the same as you and find the 157 ideal for all round do it all riding.

Either will be fine.

The 154 will be a little more playful, easier to spin, but a little less stable at speed and a little less float in powder. The 157 will be more stable, better in pow, but slightly less playful.

If you ride at lower to medium speeds and like to play around a lot go with the 154.

If you prefer more speed and ride steeper terrain get the 157.
