Ya I thought it was the same show I'm just surprised you managed to find one at that price!
Sounds like you did well though -- which retailer was it?

I think we both went to the same show...Toronto Ski and Snowboard show at the exhibition place?
I went on Sunday though - am not sure if the dealer had the same offer on the other days. The offer definitely seemed like a steal (especially since he offered it to me as soon as I picked up the board without any haggling). There was another 154 there as well, along with a 152 and number of evos. From what I was told they were all part of this "great deal" that he had received and so they were 350 for the protos and 300 for the evos (2013 all of them).
As I mentioned above there is some minor damage in two different edge sections of the topsheet, and a tiny bit of rust on one section of the tail. It's probably nothing I wouldn't have done to the board after a couple of runs down a hill...I'm more paranoid as I'm pretty sure I didn't get an honest history of the board.
Well...that and the lack of warranty.

|Cormier||At 350 you got a steal though! Which show were you at?|

Don't see anything...It's probably a demo board though. I just assumed all Never Summer's were covered by the 3yr it never occurred to me to double check the fact.
Pretty sure it's never been ridden, but I do see some very minor scuffing on it. It's a final sale anyways so hopefully it wasn't badly treated while at the store :S
Thank you for the info though. I now know for next time

Have a really odd question...figure I'll post it here.
Went to the snowboard show today, and I picked up a 154 for what seemed a really good deal (350+tax)
Funny thing I realized after I got home...my board doesn't have that last line in it below the address that lists the size of the board. I did some googling, and most every 2013 I find seems to have that little bit of info in it.
I know this is really strange, but I'm actually paranoid BECAUSE of the low price. I'm wondering if this means the board was an older version, or maybe had been sitting around for a while.
The guy who sold it to me just said the board had been given to him by the rep at a low price, but I just want to make sure I didn't somehow get scammed.

Some more detail -- still hard to get a feel for the topsheet and crazy colour combo in pictures

Picked up my own Never Summer Proto CT 2013 at the show today! The last 154 left. Obviously there were no old NS boards to be found, but I got this one for $530.99+tax which isn't bad.
I'm really impressed with the topsheet in person it's badass.
Will post up some pix in a bit

Really eh? Ya my anagram was a flat shape I believe but it took a lot of effort -- the skate banana must have been night/day!
I looked at a few Arbors, my buddies are all really into them... Mainly I was looking Coda or Element. I might be wrong but aren't they either full or full reverse camber? Like no hybrid? I had heard their grip-tech is very good too
That said, as you mentioned the new TRSs have been improving magne traction quite a bit...
You like the Proto-- but you're also (judgin by the SB) quite a freestyle rider?

|syphabiscuit||Savage!!! I started on an Anagram (full camber) 158 and the thing nearly killed me!!! And I'm 180lbs!! Then I got a 156 skate banana (09/10 i think) which revolutionised my riding! Then I got a Proto which I adore!! I rode the very same skate banana the other day at the dome after getting off the Evo. It showed me how much ... Better ...vario grip is compared to the older magnetraction - although they have lots of different ones now which are supposed to be a lot less aggressive. Has no one mentioned Arbor Blacklist? It's mid wide and highly regarded.|
