Default which Rome Board

Im 5'10 160lbs and live in denver, CO. Ive been riding for about 2 yrs now but this is my first year where i live close to a mountain. I want a board that i can take all mountain/groomers but kills it in the park and is soft enough to butter as well. Right now im looking at the Rome Reverb Rocker and the Garage Rocker

Been riding my first Rome board this year and is fantastic for its purpose. Between the two Rome boards I would say the Garage Rocker, the Reverb looks more on the stiff side, so less buttery. Though I hear the Westmark and Blacklist are fantastic boards that might serve you well all mountain and in the park.

Edit: Something like a Ride Machete might work too.

Ride machete is a pretty stiff board.

if money isn't an issue get a never summer evo

if it is then look at Ride Kink, Signal Park Flat, capita horrorscope Fk, Flow Era, all under $375

if you are really strapped for cash get a blank snowboards reverse 151-$199 bucks and actually a pretty good board.

The Garage Rocker is a good park or small mtn board, but the top sheet isn't that durable. The Reverb is an all around better board, but the flex and other tech might be a little off from what you want. Check out Rome's website. There is pretty much everything there you will ever need to know about the board. I really wish other websites were as helpful.....and honest.

I didn't realize the Machete was that stiff, riding a Rome Anthem atm so it must feel soft to me, Signal Park Flat is def a good suggestion though, especially with money as an issue pretty good noards for the money.

Yeah, their website is good with info, and their customer service is superb. Think I will be sticking with Rome for a while. My Anthem cut through nearly pure ice at points on a windy day at Whiteface last week, and not at slow speeds. That's without having any of their Quickrip tech.

Ya, my Garage has it and it's pretty legit. No real problems on pure ice....except that awful noise.

That awful noise bothered me less and less when I realized this thing had no problem with it. Felt bad for my friend on my old Burton board sliding out all over the place, but not quite enough to switch boards
