Official manufacturer description

The ProtoSlinger features our new Shockwave Rocker Camber Profile and Asymmetrical edge bite. Not only is this board the end-all be-all of freestyle snowboards, it also excels where a freestyle snowboard isn’t supposed to. It’s a pow floating, trench digging, huge boosting, soft flexing oxymoron.

Is there such a thing as a hard-charging, park destroying, street cleaning, pow shred stick, that brings the steez out of every turn? You may have stumbled upon it here. The Protoslinger, a true twin deck, offers a playful and precise ride that can suit the intermediate rider looking for a board to progress on, to the most technical freestyle rider. It features the Shock Wave Rocker Camber profile which provides explosive pop, precise edge hold, and a playful feel. Enhanced heel side edge hold and trench digging with the Asymmetrical edge bite. 4/10 flex and dampening. Don't be fooled by the softer flex, it is still very stable at speed, with V-shaped carbon stringers at the tip and tail, and down the gut of the board. This is one lively Mo-Fo that needs an owner who thinks outside the box. Throw a couple back in the parking lot and get after it!

The Proto Slinger is the perfect board for the all-mountain freestyle rider who likes to play in the park. Never Summer did a great job of creating a board that is super maneuverable and flexy, but still has some good stability and pop. The Proto Slinger is pretty easy to ride and makes rails and butters much easier, but can also ride with some speed and has a lot of pop and dampening for bigger jumps. Amazing turning experience with quick turn initiation and also will hold an edge for some quick carves. Good at speed but not a bomber. Will float a bit in powder. Really has no flaws.

Freestyle board that can handle jibs all over the mountain.

-it's longer camber areas underfoot gives you explosive pop and stability, and the smaller rocker area in between, retains quick turn and initiation & floatation through pow.

-Asymmetrical heel edge enhances edge hold helping you stomp in you landings.
