Need suggestions for a new board; ride concept or rome anthem?
I'm in the market for a new board and all I really need is a freeride board that is extremely light, fast, and has the ability to carve well. I've checked out lots of brands and their top "lightest" boards including Rome's Design, Ride's Concept TMS and UL, Palmer's honeycomb 4, burton's vapor, etc. I'm quite interested in Ride's concept series. I've ridden a Palmer honeypro and I loved it. A lot quicker lighter than my other salomon so for my next board, I decided that I would look for something that is somewhat similiar to the Palmer Honeypro. Like I said, I really like Ride's concept series but do the boards meet what I'm looking for?
I've searched this entire forum for reviews and personal opinions on the boards listed above. Many people suggest the Rome Anthem and I'm willing to consider it. I hardly go to the jump park so I do not need a freestyle board.
I don't want to be spending more than $600 on the board itself. If anyone has any suggestions, please feel free to voice your opinion in this thread. Thanks
[EDIT] I also forgot to mention my stats.
style: regular, all mountain/free-ride
