Default Rome garage rocker/factory

Couple quick question, looking for a snowboard located in virginia that has groomers and hard packed.

On the evo outlet. There is the garage rocker '13 and '14 for sale, they list the '14 more all mountain, true?

There's also the rome factory rocker. One is rcr and the other is crc. I like the 14' garage rocker so spend some time in park as well as cruising the mountain.

I have a Garage Rocker (2013) that I bought for specifically park riding at the small local hill when i cant get to the mountains.

It is alot of fun and I have used it on no-sno days at Sunshine, but its not a great all mountain board. You can ride it everywhere, the "quickrip sidecut" actually gives this a decent amount of edge hold, but its pretty soft and not that lively.

If price is your concern (i see those boards are both under 175) and you want to ride everywhere, I would strongly suggest passing on the Garage Rocker and getting the Factory Rocker or even Reverb Rocker(this has a sintered base which is worth the $40 imo). They are stiffer and will ride better all around the mountain.

If you can spring for something around the $225 range, the K2 Raygun is a very popular board round here....I havent ridden it but its got some stellar reviews.

Thanks for the reply, That's why I am curious about the 14' rocker, I pmed one person who has the 14' and said it was stiff enough to ride the mountain. I have a limited budget and would like to stay under 200 as I still have the bindings consider.

your call.....but for $20, to have something with a bit of camber in it might not hurt.

Thank you, I may go for the reverb, being all camber. Varying opinions between rcr and crc.
