Mildly used NS Proto CT 157. Probably around 15 days use. Mostly trails, but a few tree runs and park laps. NO jibbing whatsoever. I am overly afraid of rails... did 50-50 a couple boxes though.

What you would expect from a mildly used board. Some minor skuffs, one small chip (0.5 cm) in the topsheet (carbonium is bomb proof) and no edge or base damage.

Great board, but wanted something slightly longer... Amazing control, great pop and very good stability considering it is a more flexible board. I am 200 lbs and the 157 still floated in powder... not like a pow board, but I was impressed nonetheless.

300 + shipping, OBO. Retails for 550 new. You won't find this board for sale anywhere... because they sell out so quick. You rarely find used ones for sale... because they are so awesome!

I got one about two weeks ago for $385 NEW. Just gotta put in the time to do the research. $340 still isn't bad though considering they are hard to find

You are a lucky one. Thing is, I can sell it next September when there are none around for the same price. I figured I would put it up now, so anyone who realizes that they are few and far between can jump on it early. Also why I put OBO on there.

Also, the only ones I have seen on sale are the smallest and largest sizes. Lowest price I saw was $410

good call by you i just checked it quick and since they had all the sizes in the drop down box i just assumed they had them since they weren't gone or scratched out. Looks like they only have the 154...

I wouldn't have posted it if there was a surplus available. I'm not going to have to try too hard to get rid of it, it's an awesome board with limited used availability. It has just enough days on it to be slightly broken in, so in the land of used items, it is what you want.

I wasn't trying to say they were everywhere or there was a "surplus" just stating that I found one and the site I was on had a few sizes available (clearly I was mistaken). :icon_scratch:

Its nice to see that youve come here and used most of your total post count to interfere with a longtime contributor. Not that it has any bearing on the sale, I'm just saying that if you are not a useless piece of shit, you are at least bad at first impressions.

I mean wtf is your reason for existing on this forum? exactly?

I see you werent being a dick with your words per se, but I am lol.

Lucky I'm not in charge (no disrespect to those who are by any means) I'd banhammer your ass based on principle and sticky the thread like a head on a spike.

I was just trying to point out what I thought was a good deal. I'm glad you can be a dick here because like most Internet shit talkers I'm sure you're a little twat in real life. I would love to see you in the ring/field/mat.

Personally, as a newbie, i would get too know people before starting an argument, feel out what is acceptable and what kind of banter goes down with what kind of people.

Generally with any kind of forum, you will find people that are new are looked at in a different way, this is human nature, and i understand what you posted in thinking it could be helpful, but at the same time almost condescending that he was trying to say and sell his board for more than it's worth...

Well, the board is worth what someone will pay for it, and that is what the OP wants, and i'm sure that many will see that as a bargain, and to be fair, it is pretty cheap...!!!

I love a bargain myself, but i would not try to sabotage a post by sourcing it from elsewhere in what is basically a FOR SALE THREAD of someone else...

And i would not give the attitude back after receiving a flaming post, it is the internet, and that is what happens to people that are not known... ;)

Oh and...

FREE BUMP... :giggle:

I kinda wanted to chew him out, but I figured everyone looking would search online... realize it was the only one around... and come back looking for a board.

BigmountainVMD - nice board hope you sell it. I would be interested but I need a CTX (fat as fuck feet).

Flee21 - I'm just going to say thanks, because whether you intentionally tried to hijack BigmountainsVMD's "for sale," post or not you made my morning. Everyone ripping on you has started my workday off great.

First and foremost want to say sorry to Bigmountain. I realize my initial post was pretty much a dick move. It wasn't my intention. I was just stoked to get one for under $400 (and it was in my size). I really wasn't trying to threadjack you or say your board was listed at a bad price. I'm just hyped about getting one based off all the reviews I've read on here/other sites. Sorry man.

As far as first impressions are concerned this definitely wasn't an ideal one for me so we will just need to go on from there. Didn't mean to rub anyone the wrong way and I get that you guys have been here for a while and you have every right to tell me what's acceptable and what isn't. I'll pay a little more attention before posting next time.

It's all good man. No harm done.
