Got a new board, have some old cartels, wanting to upgrade..

Sup guys,

I acquired a 2012 T.Rice Pro 153 not too long ago and I have some 08/09 Cartels. I put those on the board but I'm one of those people that feels a setup should be done entirely and not in parts. I'm mostly a freerider that loves treelines, backsides of mountains and the occasional groomer. I have gone to the park a couple of times but I've hit nothing more than a couple of small kickers and boxes. I'm thinking of the 2013 Cartels but I was also interested in the Rome 390 bosses. I don't have a local shop near me unless you consider Sports Authority and Dick's as "local shops". Lol.

I'd like some input on the stiffness of the 390 Bosses. I love my Cartels and I figure it'll be a world of difference getting up to the '13 model. I also have only ridden Cartels so it'd be nice for a change as well.

I'm thinking the Targa is better for you in the Rome lineup.

Targa over 390, Malavita over Cartel for 2013. I'd also look into Raiden Phantoms, Flow NX2 AT's, Flux SF45s, K2 Companies, or Salomon Chiefs.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
