Arbor Element, Never Summer SL, Rome Anthem

Am I correct to assume that these are pretty similar as all-mountain boards? If so, how would you rank them and are there other boards you would recommend along the same vein?

I'm looking for an all-mountain (mostly freeride) board that's maneuverable, somewhat forgiving, but stable at high speeds.

i reckon you'll find alot of proponents for the neversummer sl-r in here. apparently they are really really good, and bomb proof.

im just about to jump on the neversummer bandwagon myself- evo-r to come soon! (i have a nagging suspicion that its going to make me spooge when i ride it for the first time)

I like the SL-R. I own an Arbor. I think either fit the bill of what you're looking for. Haven't ridden the Anthem for a few years but my recollection is that it was OK, but nothing special. Just my .02.

So you'd go with the SL-R over the Element?

I like the SL-R. I own an Arbor. Granted, I got a smokin' deal on the Arbor as a shop manager. If I could have gotten the same deal on the SL-R, I might have bought an SL-R as well. But if I were in a position where I had to pay MSRP, and could only afford one, I'd go with the Arbor, because I prefer the Arbor for my personal tastes. You may find one of the others more to your liking. I know it may be difficult to demo any and/or all of them before buying, but that would be my recommendation. I realize this is probably of little help to you, but just clarifying that I prefer the Arbor of the three, and think either the Arbor or SL-R would make you happy based upon your post.

Are you talking about an SL-R or an SL(camber version)?

I had more fun on both the sl and sl-r than my 2007 arbor element. Not sure if anything changed with the element since then, but I would recommend the sl-r out of all three. At the end of the day it won't really matter which you choose though, they are all great boards.
