Wes_Dark ok legacy is on the list.

What about YES boards or a capita?

Mystery2many Out of all the boards I've owned and rode. The proto is a board for someone who needs aggressiveness. Like I said before. Legacy. Which is the wide SL. Dude. I promise you the legacy is for you. The proto is not your style.

Wes_Dark Why do they say soft, easily flexible boards are good for beginners? If you're 200lbs and can flex a 5 as easily as somebody 150 can flex a 4, wouldn't they both be acceptable beginner boards?

And because I was considering it based if those two reasons and was hoping somebody here could shed some light on which to proceed lookig into and which are wastes of time.
owning a proto, and demoing the assassin, the assassin is a tad stiffer

Height is just a general marker. If you are your target height and weight for your age, you can generally tell your size

So far my list is an evil twin, ns revolver, ns proto hdx. Salomon villain or assassin.

I just want to know if I'll have enough leverage to flex a stiffer proto hdx that it won't hinder my progression.

For bindings I think the research says Rome 390 boss or union force. Or union contact. Boots would be burton rulers or 32 lashed.

Again, hate to post this because these are out up every hour but I just had to ask.
If your worried about the flex of the protohd than why are you considering the assassin?

cav0011 just look at what the actual effective edge is. My 156 parkbaord and my 159 evil twin have the same length. Different models have different lengths so just look for the right number for you.
01-09-2014 08:33 PM
Wes_Dark And from the longer effective edge the proto has, a 157 feels like a 160?

but a 157 in other boards would be alright I'm assuming? Like those salomon or that evil twin?

yeah, anyhow a board has no idea how tall you are. The only time height is a factor at all is for your stance width. Most boards will accommodate a huge range of stances so it is not a big issue anymore.
