Default 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.

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.
