K2 Raygun vs Rossignol Templar vs Rome Tour

Hi all,
Just joined up, looks like a great forum. I'm practically a total beginner looking for a first board that's easy to learn and also allow me to ride a few years while progressing. (Weight ~155lbs, height 5'7", age 29)

These 3 are ones I'm looking at and all are going for great prices online from what I've seen. I live in the south east Ontario region in Canada so would likely be going to hills in this area. I'm currently leaning towards the Rossignol because of the great price it seems to be going at, relative to the features it has. I also understand Rossi doesn't have the greatest reputation in the snowboard community though?

The Raygun seems to be well-liked around here, and the Rome Tour I haven't seen much on but from reviews appears to be a good all-around beginner board.

Any thoughts on these?

Thanks!

So I pulled the trigger on the Templar. The price just seemed to be too good ($162 - $10 "welcome" coupon code).

Any thoughts? The Raygun as I mentioned gets a lotta love (awards, etc), and it was also a decent price ($190 on evo).

I'm deciding between the Raygun and the Templar right now. Leaning twaddle the Templar, but would love to hear from some more experienced riders.
Cheers.

I just bought the Templar, price was too good to pass up and was recommended for the icey NE conditions i will ride in. Have about 8-10 passes on it and like it so far. Handles good on the icey stuff. Granted im far from experienced.

entirely irrelevant and purely cosmetic, but does the topsheet look as brown as they do in the pics, or is it darker? (i assume you got the 2013 which has been on sale)
