Rome Flag Sidecut
I've been looking to get an AT/Freeride board for groomers, powder, trees, and big kickers. I have seen a lot of good reviews about the Rome Flag here and at other places and the tech listed on Rome's website seems very impressive.
The only concern I had was about the sidecut (For the 168, it is listed at 8.08m). This is fairly small when compared to other companies high end freeride boards:
NS Titan TX - 9.3/10/7.8 tri radius
Nitro Pantera Wide - 9.4/8.4 dual progressive
Ride Yukon - 9.6/8.6/9.6
Arbor Roundhouse - 9.7/8.8/9.7
With a smaller radius (my current board is 8.4m) is the Flag going to be able to take high speed turns/carves as well? Or, is it going to try to turn sharper than I want to, resulting in skidding or a little washout?
