Unsure of my new setup, what to do?
My first board was a K2 Fuse.. which is a medium flex all mountain board which I progressed on quite a lot and rode for 3 years. I go on trips with a couple skiiers, so I wanted to get a faster more stable board that I could use to just bomb down runs and keep up with them. I bought a Rome Anthem which I have done about 5 days on now. It's definitely faster than my old board, but I'm not enjoying it as much. The Anthem is good on groomers, but it's not really fun to mess around.
I'm not sure if I should either.. get another all round do everything board, is there an all mountain board that is really good at everything? or is it going to be a compromise.. not bad in the park, not bad at fast runs?
Or is it a better idea to get a second board to play on and keep the anthem. A flexy park board and the stiff anthem I can switch between?
I like to ride the whole mountain, i like to go fast, i like to do jumps, i want to learn more spins and park tricks, I want to do everything really. Any suggestions?
Also I'm in Australia so our runs here are mostly man made snow, icey, crud, lol.. don't really get powder. I am 170cm (5'7) and 65kg (143lb) the Fuse was a 150cm, Anthem is a 153cm.
