Sing the blues a different day sister. The Rome Blue Snowboard is all about speed, response, and more pop than commercial radio stations.

This board is my favorite, so much my favorite that I own the 2006-2007 and I just picked up this model (08-09)! Not an entry level board by any means. It can handle anything, it's aggressive and amazing for carving. A little more effort and reaction time needed for quick turns in the trees as it is a little stiffer torsionally, but if you're looking at this board, you can probably handle it. If not, get a smooth-flexing entry level board and make sure it's a Rome :)
Longitudinal flex allows for easy ollies, 180's and plenty of pop. Stable on jump landings too and I beat it up a little on rails. If you want to get real buttery, get the Rome Detail or Lo-Fi. All around great ride for intermediate to advanced women and forces you to progress. I've gotten so much more confidence in my riding in 2 years, that I can't imagine how I'll be riding in 2 more on these boards.
I'm probably going to be owning a Rome park board soon just because I love them and I'm sure it will stand up to the abuse like the Blue has oh and the Rome Madisions' go great with this board!
Oh it's fast!
I bought this board at the end of this season '09 and it was pretty much the most amazing thing. Looking at boards all year I am so glad I chose this one. Even wearing it in my living room it popped me like a trampoline!
I took it to the bird and it was soo fast I could barely keep up with it, even though I was strapped in.
Met some dudes on the hill and they all said, "You're pretty good for a girl." Aww shucks fellas, just because I'm faster that you!!!!
Great response and pop off any lip. Light weight and holds it own. Go shred it up!

Aside from beating my ragged old men's board like a red-headed stepchild, my Rome Blue is super responsive with a great carve and nice pop. I got last year's version of this board, and I am completely thrilled with it. I can't compare it to any other women's boards, but compared to other boards I've ridden it has prefect flex and does just as well (if not better) in deep pow.
I am looking at the Rome Blue and Salomon...
I am looking at the Rome Blue and Salomon Lotus snowboards for my daughter. Which is the better board for all around mountain riding? She is an aggressive rider and weighs about 138.
Do you mean the Never Summer Lotus? I'm not aware of Backcountry having a Salomon Lotus. But both would be a good choice for her. I'm guessing this is for a present for her so you couldn't ask her which design she likes more. Either one is great for all mountain riding. I might lean toward the Never Summer simply because they make really good quality products and back their boards with a 3 year warranty. That is almost unheard of.
so is this actuall an all mountain board...
so is this actuall an all mountain board or rather built to hit the park?!
It's an all mountain, but definately equipped to handle the park as well.
