Which Rome board ?

Hi All,

Can't decide on the following -

Rome Garage Rocker 148
Rome Artifact 147

This is mostly going to be for snowdomes and park riding , if I get the chance to go to the mountains this year !!
Both are pretty similar but the the garage Rocket is 65 cheaper so not sure.

As you can tell from the snowdome comment I am UK based so mostly rails and boxes in the domes , possibly urban riding if the UK gets any snow !

I know there are other jibbing boards but I kinda like these two and have always liked any Rome boards I owned.

Any feedback would be much appreciated.

1st off, I LOVE rome. As you can see by my name. lol. So anyways, I've owned 5 artifacts, and they're my favorite board ever. It completely smashes all the rails I put her on. No doubt about that. As for the garage rocker, it seems like it's not quite made with the same materials. My friend owns one, and he said he wishes it wasn't as stiff. I've never ridden it though. I actually just emailed Rome the other day. I want a new rome board, because that's what I ride, and didn't want the artifact because it's a noodle on jumps. They said that they suggest the reverb rocker for me if I want to hit small jumps, but still kill like the artifact does.

All in all, with the artifact, you won't regret a damn decision.

Many thanks for the advice, I think it is the Artifact then. Going to get the rocker version as it suit the riding I want to do rather than the camber version. Cant wait until the morning to go and get one , already reserved one at my local snowboard shop. let me know what the reverb rocker is like if you get one as I will be looking at more of a jumps/cruising board in the new year and was looking at the Postermania.
