Like I said, tell me if this is on everyones board, because I didn't see i on the pics
It may not be the season yet, but by just strapping it on in my living room and doing some ollies I can tell that it is awesome. Only think I don't like is that there is a big black spot on the boar and that all the cool graphics get covered up by my binding. DOuble whammy right there, but besides that I love this board.
Anything and everything
This board is the shizzzz. I rode the Machine for my first full season, this year and last, and I have to say that it is hands down one of the best wide decks out on the market. Pop core is super playful and has crazy snap when hitting anything. I take it from park to trees to steeps and anywhere in between. If you are looking for a wide board that does it all, then this is the one to get. Im 5'11, 165lbs with size 12 feet, and I ride a 154w. Trust in Rome, they will not do you wrong

G'day snowboarding buds!... who better to ask then people who ride the boards. My question is, I'm 6,2 and 200lb's with a size 13 boot and looking to get better at buttering and park riding and was considering the Rome Machine 157/159 or the Rome Riff. What do you think would be better for the above or should I consider an even wider board such as the Lib Skate Banana BTX or the GNU Carbon Credit?
Previously owned a Rome Agent and loved it but wasn't wide enough as I got heel and toe drag so I sold it and got a Capita Stairmaster and not a fan.....
Thanks in advance for any insight guys!...
From your mate downunder.
i have the machine 57 im 62 175 with 12s for flippers i also had a riff last year. in whistler the riff delaminated and the nose broke in under 3 weeks of riding it! huge dissapointment cuz it rode so great. no idea if theyve fixed the problem this year but for warrantee instead of getting a new riff they sent me a machine with 390s. i got the 57 and it was maybe a lil softer but not super noticeable. ive found its not good for rippin it fast into the big cheese wedges but pretty good in the park. i have a ride dh2 as well so i use my machine for park days and dh2 for the big jumps and big mtn days.
I definatley loved the riff before it exploded but if they have fixed the problems with the riff its definatly better for all around. If ur just doin park or jibs the machine is cheaper and does the job. dont detune ur edges tho cuz riding hard pack with it or holding an edge into a jump is super hairy
Thanks for the advice Leeroy!
Ended up getting a 155 Rome Riff and can't wait to use it, but have to wait another 4 months for the first flack of snow to hit Oz.....
But on the up side, heading to Banff at the end of the year! woohoo!!!....
Just another one, where would be the best place to board in the US of A??..
Once again, thanks mate, much appreciated.
I've been riding the machine for about 3 years now and it's hands down the best board i've ever owned. I'm 6'0" 160 and I ride the 154. There really isn't anything you can't do on this board,bombing groomers, rails, kickers, pow, it tames it all. The mountain is my playground and this board allows me do do basically anything that I want. Good board for any terrain. The new graphics are sick, get one while it's hot.

This board rocks. I have ridden the past 2 years models, and I couldn't be happier. I'm 6'1", about 250, and I've been riding the 157. It performs well all around the mountain, but is a bit too soft for super high speeds in cruddier snow. This problem could be alleviated for me personally with a little bigger size, but when it comes to park riding, or turning the whole mountain into a park, the 57 is on point. I can ride deep pow, carve on groomers, and hit small to medium kickers with out any problems. I don't hit any jumps bigger than 25 feet, but I could imagine at my weight, this board might be a bit squirrelly! This year i'm going to try a 159 for a little extra umph!

hi, i am in london and a question would be if you coud post a board as a gift so i wouldnt need to pay custom charges?
I would try asking dogfunk directly through the 800 number, or try live chat, it's absolutely the quickest and easiest way to contact DF!
good luck bro
