Rome 390 vs k2 formula

well just trying to see if the romes are worth the extra 30 bucks k2 has all the same features. but are the formulas and 390s comparable in flex because ive heard the new rocklock highback makes the formulas too stiff now because im looking for that middle of the road flex that performs well for most aspects of boarding

Honestly the new Formula highback still feels plenty flexy to me. My buddy that's 6'4" 220 picked up a set for AM use too. Go for it.

If you're interested in last year's Formulas, I've got a set of larges in black. Used 5 times, and are in excellent shape. I'd let them go for $85 shipped. Can send pics if you're interested.
