Rome Factory Rocker or Postermania

I am stuck between these two boards. I ride the mountain most of the time but still am at the park a lot, usually rails and boxes, and i do jumps but nothing huge, not yet atleast, so basically i want whichever board is better for the mountain, but still fun at the park, what should i do?

The Postermania is basically the same thing as the Garage Rocker without the easy to repair base and the TTT Core Matrix. The Factory Rocker is a hybrid and not that great at rail.

Honestly between the two you're better off with the Postermania.

But you should consider the Garage Rocker instead. It has an easier base to repair, it better at jibs than both, and jumps. It does lack in the riding and in pow, but since you said you're mainly into park it shouldn't be a problem. And with quickrip it isn't really that bad for edge hold. Also it is the same budget as the others.

If you have the money and want a PURE park board, the Artifact is the board. It's the same price about too.

Basically, what camber type do you want and how much flex?

If it matters at all, I have the Garage Rocker. So any questions about it I can tell ya.

What the hell does the Garage rocker have to do with the Factory Rocker and Postermania? Fucking read. Here dude read this review The Angry Snowboarder Blog Archive 2012 Rome Factory Rocker Used and Reviewed boards solid and I liked it way more than the Postermania.

I know this may sounds stupid but which of these is better for just going down the mountain and stable at speed. Yes i know they have different cambers and rockers but im not to sure becuase the reviews do not say much on it. Any help would be appreciated.

The Factory Rocker. It's also better at riding down groomers than the Garage Rocker if you were referring to that too. The Factory Rocker is sort of like a low end, low budget all mountain board. Is around $300 your budget?

Why are you still talking about the Garage Rocker? That isn't even a board he mentioned.

Because I told him to give that a look too. I answered his question, I'm not telling him to get it, just to give it a look. He seemed to be more of a jib from what he said, and the Garage Rocker is a tad bit better on jibs than the two. And just as good at jumps.
