Default Rome Gargage rocker - flat, rocker outside bindings twin

Hi all,
I rode rome garage rocker 156 for the past 2 days, bottom profile is flat till outside of bindings. I like the board for the most part. My usual stance is 21.5" wide and I unfortunatley cant get the stance that narrow unless I drop to their 152 which is too small. looking for suggestions for alternative board.
Thanks!

K2 WWW Rocker Type: Rocker/Flat/Rocker same as Garage Rocker K2 is a higher end board.

The 152 rides like a 156 because its blunted both at the tip and tail.

Stoked that you have been loving the GR. The Min stance is 22 inches u to 159 cm. You can easily get to 21.5 on the 156 by switching your disc slides to horizontal.

Bingo! good call Wiredsport.
I do like this board. I have been riding it in a 152 and got the 156 for more contact length (not sure if this is 'effective edge' or 'running length' in Rome speak) but didn't realize 156 came with wider inserts.
I'm going to slide the binding discs and try it out next weekend and will hopefully click with this board.
Thanks!
