Rome Detail

I just purchased a Rome Detail women's board off of ebay for $200. I was told that it's a really good board, someone said it was basically a smaller version of the Artifact which I've heard great things about. I'm upgrading from a way too big (155) LTD board to the Detail which I got in a 140 (I'm only about 105lbs with a 7-7.5 boot). If all goes well I'll be putting Flow Pro FS bindings on it. I can't wait to get in on the snow! What do you think?
I'm also looking for some good boots with an easy lacing system (I have a hard time tightening regular laces because I'm a weak little girly girl). I need some that won't break the bank... I was looking at some Burton Mint '07s for $85, any other suggestions?

Note: I'm still just a beginner, I've taken about 6-8 lessons but I want this board to last me a few seasons.

Boots wise, just try stuff on. It's hard to say what will and will not fit your feet because we don't live with them.

the board will be awesome, Rome makes a great product I ride a Flag myself and I almost bought my girl the Detail. In terms of boots try them all out. My gf had issues with Nitro's quick lace system and I did too so you want to make sure you can work everything right when buying them...
