Rome or Technine?

I've been snowboarding for some years now and I'm pretty comfortable in the park, groomed trails, back-country woods, etc. However, I'm looking for a board mainly for jibbing (boxes, rails, and other crazy stuff). I've heard Rome or Technine were the boards for me. what do you guys suggest?

i have been riding my technine for 2 years now and i love it. I have thought about buying a new board but its just unnecessary since this board is awesome.

Rome Boards 802

Artifact sounds like it could be a good pick. If you have specific questions about gear, don't hesitate to email us directly either at ridercouncil@romesnowboards.com and we'll get back to you soon as possible.

I'd probably suggest Rome as well. I've never ridden a technine board, but they don't have a great reputation with regards to their bindings so...

thanks for the input guys...I'll look into the rome Artifact and shoot you guys an email. Also, a question for RyCan3. Which Technine board do you have? and, would it be good for park or not? If not, which technine board would you recommend?

Forum.... Never ride technine, but that's just experience, i've ride the technine destroyer 2010 and lucas magoon 2010 and they both broke after a period of 2-4 months. And im not a noob boarder, i ride contests. Till now, Forum have been the most reliable boards. Im riding the Forum Contract 2011 now, and i can really recommend it for you! oh and btw, do not ride rocker. Chamber gives always the original board feeling, and rocker is for dudes that can't ride but want to spin on a rail without to much work

cheers

Board: Forum Contract 148, 150
Bindings: Forum Faction 2011, Union Contact 2011
