I would hope that when you're ordering you could specify which color way you'd like. Im sure if you ask, they will deliver. It's not as though your asking for much.

pmoa, as of now all these proto's that are out have been passed around by Never Summer for demo'ing and testing, before they start shipping them to shops. Thats what I'm understanding at the moment, anyway.

True that... well I'll be getting picky when I order mine for sure!

Think some online stores have broke it down by topsheet colorway but when ordering for the most part you get what is sent to you. If you have a shop near you your best bet would be to stop in as early as possible.

The season is almost upon us!!!!

Board reviewers for the most part. Worked for the heritage! Last year almost every person who reviewed the heritage said they were most likely gonna buy one. That was one of the main selling point for me when picking it up. Now you prob can only find the heritage in selected sizes if lucky.

Its deff good press when everyone who rides it likes it, though that is yet to be determined with the proto.

I wonder if you contacted an online store by phone or email if they'd be willing to check and see if they had the colorway you wanted. I can think of a few who probably would'nt mind... but I could be wrong! Its my money though, so I should be able to get the one I so choose...

Just my opinion though.

Either way, I'm still very excited about this board. I was considering the SL before, but the winning combination of a SL/Legacy and an EVO-R is very appealing...

Yea I got to test one from my local shop(Heritage) and loved it. I wonder if i can get away with a 154 on this board. I weigh 190. Or should I get the 157? hmmmmmm....Wonder if I can pre-Order one of these bad boys

The Angry Snowboarder Blog Archive 2012 Never Summer Proto CT Used and Abused

Read through that review, and the posts after it below. Granted, he was riding the CT-X(wide) version, but everything I've read so far says it rides a little longer than the actual length NS gave for it. So a 158 rides like a 160. This is because of a longer effective edge than usual for each size. Both the 157 and 158X(wide) have basically the same length of effective edge as my 160W Sierra Crew of 125.

Heck, post up on AG with everyone else after you read it if you want, I'm sure they'd be more than willing to point you to a good size for your dimensions.
