Default Narrowed down my board choice, Never Summer or ROME

Ok well i've narrowed it down to three boards:

08 Never Summer SL 158 (cant find any 2007)
08 Never Summer Legacy 159 (the 08 is supposed to be a mid-wide SL, so a bit more flex and a bit lighter)
07 Rome Flag 157 ($125 cheaper then the rest, but with the NS I can get a extra 1 year warrenty = 4 year warrenty)

What are your thoughts on these? Like I said im 6'1 165lbs, size 11.5 boots. Burton Co2 bindings.

I havent been a park rider but I want to get in there this summer so I want a board that will do 'alright' in there. I really want a Free Ride board that will do decent in the park. Id say I spend 30% off the track in the powder/trees, 40% on the track, 30% in the park. Might start hitting up the park a bit more though. I want a board that I can keep for a few years and sort of 'grow into' id say im a intermediate level rider.

Thanks!!!

a warranty on a board is useless
all manufactures will replace if it is a know defect

The NS SL might be your best bet...Legacy might be too damp for the park.

I guess, but even if its past the 1-2 year warranty?

Anyways need more opinions!! I would go with the Rome in a heartbeat because its quite a bit cheaper but I hate the graphics on it! Unless you guys think its a better board for me.

thanks

You'll notice defects pretty damn fast. Also remember, warranties dont cover wear and tear from rails, rocks, jumps, etc. If you split an edge, damage the core, or crack the board from park stuff NS and all other companies will laugh in your face if you send it to them asking for a replacement.
