He's ranking flex the same way all snowboard companies do it. the smaller the number, the more buttery the board is.

Fairly stiffer in relation to the Evo. Not fairly stiffer in general.

optical lol i googled for that picture actually, I was dead set on the EVO but as said earlier my buddy uses that as his main stick so i would like to be a little different even though his is last years model. I have read your reviews countless times thus far and its such a hard decision. Thanks alot for the input on size that was my biggest worry as im a little inbetween on the height/weight guidelines

Leo You're using my Evo picture as your Avatar, but you're getting the Proto? LoL.

Anyway, the 152 is the smallest size it comes in. I'd say it's a little big for you. Nothing too bad though. Proto is fairly stiffer than the Evo so just keep that in mind.

If you choose the Evo, go with 150. I take it that you read my reviews since you have that picture so you know everything I have to say already

I only gave it one shot on my last run of the year so yeah, if I gave it more than 10 minutes I'm sure I would have gotten it. That said I'd rather learn on a softer board I do plan on picking up something more stiff this season

CheeseForSteeze I am 145 and if I had gone with the Evo, I would have gone 150 since with the contact points pushed and nose/tail blunted, you can get away with it. The 150 rides longer than the 151 from last season. I had no problem doing whatever with the Evo 151.

I went with an EVO which others have said have zero problem riding the rest of the mountain except the bigger features and bombing real fast.

optical Im not exactly new i just havent gone in the last 4-5 years, I have 4-5 years experience and am just getting back into it. Come to think of it i went 2-3 times 2 years ago and its was just like hoping on a bike. The reason i want the proto over the evo is a buddy of mine has the evo and well i like to be different even though thousands have the proto no one i know has it.
