'08 Rome Mod
A sick ride...but has pro and cons.
PROs: The board is SUPER lightweight which makes it easy to spin and rip in the snow. It has a lot of pop off of kickers and small jumps...plus the soft nose/tail and soft torsional flex of the board allows you to stomp sketchy landings. Great board feel...decent in the pipe.
CONs: Lousy edge hold in rough terrain.
VERY NICE. I'm partial to Rome snowboards, this is my 5th in the last 2 years. You can't go wrong with Rome. If you like the looks of this board from the picture you will love it when you see it in person. Lots of detail that you can't see in the pic. Very light and snappy. Not your traditional park deck. I think it would suit for lighter riders as an all mountain twin tip. Out of the box it seems about as stiff as an agent, it is stiffer than my last year agent but that board is broken in. The tip and tail have been thinned out for low swing weight. THEY ARE VERY THIN at the tips, shockingly thin. I'm sure that this will be noticed while doing spins. It has a squared off tip and tail like the headroom or the seven, takes a little to get use to the look of it but it grows on you fast. Very light, very poppy, great jumper board. Dont think it will be the best on rails, but im staying away from rails for awhile with this deck.... Its the board Im most excited about this year.
