Default VERY URGENT! Rome Flag or Manual

Ok Ill explain why its so urgent later tonight but I need to know ASAP.
Im 6'4-6'5 or so, 220lb, size 14 boot. Im a beginner and want a board for free ride with MAYBE a little park for next season. Mainly freeride now though. Out of these which would be the best considering I can get both with a $50 range withing each other.

Rome Flag 168cm

OR

Rome Manual 162 (or whatever it is)

Both are wide boards which is what I need. I like the Manual's grpahics more but I think a better board > graphics.


Please answer ASAP.

Both will be great boards but if you ask me, I'd say get the Graft.

As far as the choices you listed I'd say get the Flag. They both have decent graphics

Alright, I couldnt take the risk of waiting for the board to sell out.

I just ordered a 168cm Rome Flag for $300 shipped. Graphics arent the BEST but it will def. match the bindings.

If you are a beginner that 168 might give you a little bit of a hard time at first but it will teach you how to ride without a doubt. You got a good price on it It won't matter if the bindings match it as you smoke people down the mountain

dude, the graft is a awesome board and i am thinking about getting one, but he said he mainly wants to do freeriding, and well, i dont think the graft is the best choice for that.

I don't think it'll give him too much of a hard time. He's 220, and should be able to toss the board around after a coupla days.
my 2 cents.

Note that I said "at first"

I agree he may be tearing it up after a little but a board that big is a handful to any new rider.
