Why not just get a Rome Artifact Rocker?

cuz i cant find it in my size at 147 and im looking for alternatives, im currently riding my friend's 147 RAR and its great, but its not mine lol, i have to give it back eventually. But he's likely going to borrow one of mine in the future so i may as well have something slightly different.

Gotcha. Makes sense.

You're totally out of my element with that type of board, so I'll let others chime in.

I'd look at the flow verve. I own both but IMO the verve is the better board. I like where it flexes and can still rail a nice carve. Not so much on the Artifact, tail starts to wash a bit but both are very similar.

thanks, ill take a look. flexwise im looking for something very similar to the RAR, i just dont want it any more noodly than that. Im probably coming off as being very picky, there is a possibility of me picking up my own RAR instead.

i think the flow verve is just a tad stiff, still looking for a noodle, i just don't want anything MORE noodly than the RAR.

Has anyone rode the 2014 arbor draft, is it comparable to the RAR? I've noticed this year they've replaced the bronze edges with steel edges hopefully making it more ridable outside the park.
