definitely is... I'm super stoked on Rome right now wish I would've given them a chance a few years ago, but went with Ride instead, no regrets with my Ride equipment, just wished someone would've opened my eyes a bit sooner. The guys at Rome are like us, they want the customers to be happy and are willing to do what it takes to make it so. When I was up in the air about what to get, they basically said to me, when you get up to Stowe give me a ring and I'll let you demo a board from our Factory, if I don't have one available I'll stop at one of the shops and get you a free demo anyway just so you can try it out. They're all about meeting up with them and taking runs. What other company does that? Totally closed me on the merits of them as a growing company which I will now support 110%.
