I've been shopping on there for a new medium flexing deck for my lady, so I've been thinking about the Rome Lo-Fi. The Burton Deja Vu is way too soft for what you're describing. My girl demoed it before and it's super soft. The Rome Gold on the other hand, sounds like a plank despite a rocker/camber profile. Did you consider the Rome Vinyl and the Ride Farah? Those seem like much better options than either you chose. Based on how different the 2 you mentioned were, I suspect you need to do alot more research beyond price and pretty graphics.
