Picked up the proto Fr after demoing it at jay last season. Thing digs into carves and wants to keep going deeper. Board lets you confidently rip any terrain thrown your way.
This will be my 2nd season on this board. I love everything about it. I feel like I can just charge on it. Edge hold is spectacular. I doubt I’m challenging this board how it should be.
Not much to say. The board speaks for itself. Every day last season I wanted to ride this board, and was excited and pleased every time I did.
I’m 5’10”, 190 lbs., and I bought the 160 Proto FR this season. Rode it 18 days from ice to slush and from groomed to knee deep powder. Sometime my bindings were forward for a centered feel where I could lay it flat on toe and heel edges. On powder days I moved the bindings back and floated with ease and could carve open radiuses to tight tree turns. Absolutely zero complaints. I’ve snowboarded since the late 1980s, and I’ve never loved a board so much. Full disclosure: I do not ride terrain parks. I ride mostly resorts looking for the hidden stashes in the trees or carving the bowls. I prefer a stiff board with edge control. This board really shined when the fresh powder was ridden out and the runs were choppy sections of chunder . The Proto FR steadily sliced through without chatter or slipping out.
There are a ton of choices out there, and it can be overwhelming to pick a new board. You can rest assured that this board will not disappoint you. (My 2 cents). Plus NS builds bombproof boards that will last for many seasons. Thanks NS!
I am 6'4", 210lbs, size 11 boots size 12 foot size and I bought and rode the Proto Tripple Camber FR 162 DF. The stability of this board over variable late season conditions gave me so much confidence. It feels locked in like traditional camber but it isnt catchy feeling or overly stiff. It was surprisingly forgiving. I was able to lay over and reverse carve almost immediately and the lenght was perfect for me. Quick edge to edge in tight spots and had good float in powder. This board checks all the boxes for an all mountain free ride and I would highly reccomend it to anyone looking for a go anywhere do anything kind of board.
