New Board Suggestions

Hi all,

I currently ride a Ride Solace 2011 women's board, and I'm finding that it's just too flexible/not responsive enough. As it is, my board seems to have uneven flex in it- only flexes at the nose and tail, it doesn't carve very well(its a very soft board). I rode my fiance's Burton 7 last time we went snowboarding and I fell in love. I think his board is one of the first 7's they made, he said it was around 8 years old. Some of the reasons I fell in love with his board were that fact that it is soo responsive, it's stiff but not a 2x4, and the edges grip ridiculously well whether it's on ice or snow. I'm not at all interested in a park board. I live in Virginia, which seems to be the ice capital at most times so something with as much grab and responsiveness as the old 7's board would be killer. I am 5'8", 160 lbs goofy if that helps at all. Let me know if there's anything else I can contribute!!

I was actually thinking about the Rome Lo-Fi Camber. I think they also make a v-rocker version too, not to be confused. Anyone heard anything about this board?

Gnu B-pro or Roxy Envi, they both have magnetraction which is really good for gripping ice, not sure hat your budget is though.

Dude, suckin at somethin' is just the first step to bein' sorta good at somethin'

Haha, if I made him give up that board I'd never hear the end of it!! Of course I really don't blame him that board is beast! Here is his exact board:

Honestly, if they made more boards to perform like his does(especially for carving), there would be no need to make any other.
