Default Wait, should i return my board?? or am i being paranoid?

Some of you might remember, I was looking for a pure park/jib/butter board to compliment my 154 Burton custom that i use for everything else. I wana ride park more(total park noob). So, i picked up a 153 Rome Artifact, hearing that it was one of the softer boards out there. Anyways, Flexing it by hand, they feel almost the same to me(is this a horrible way to judge?). The Rome is only my 3rd board. The first being a crappy/stiff Ride. Will i notice a difference riding the artifact? Or will it be similar to my custom? I just picked up my custom this past year so Im wondering if i should keep the artifact?

maybe im going through buyers remorse. Idk.. but if the Artifact is gona definately be different i'll be stoked to keep it.

Hand flexing a board does nothing!! Go ride it...It's wayyy different then the Custom!

Your probably only applying, what? 20-30lbs MAX using your hand...Definitely need to get out and ride it, you need the weight on it to notice anything...

I ride a 150 artifact 1985 and love it in the park. Ive only been on it a few times and from those times ive already noticed a big diff in flex compared to my other boards. This board butters so easy and once it breaks in it should be even better.

Yeah i would have liked to have a rockered board, but its slim pickins right now and i dont want to wait til skidazzle. I originally was lookin for a k2 www rocker.

Out of curiosity what other boards did you ride before your artifact?

Made the switch from a Custom to an Artifact two years ago. IMO, one of the funnest decks to progress your jib game.

I thought the same thing when I picked up my WWW rocker. Once I strapped it in, it is insanely softer, you'll definitaley notice once your feet are strapped to that thing!

I just recieved my new board in the mail ther capita survival indoor fk and it's supposed to be flaxible and I was bending it with my hand and it seemed really stiff. Then I assembled it and then took it to the nearest hill and had some fun. when I strapped in it was flexing like crazy, when I made it flex that is. So no worries just ride it haev fun and you'll see a huge difference.
