Default K2 www vs Rome artifact

I know I already have a pretty nice stick already but hey I just sold my old sierra crew so time for a new board!

Iím learning butters presses n stuff and feel like I can use something softer than the ET Iím riding.

So some local guy is selling a mint 2010 K2 WWW 145cm for 180, and I found a brand new 2011 Rome artifact 150 being sold online for 199. From what I know these two sticks are pretty similar. Only concern is that the K2 could be a tad short. But isnít that what you want in a jib board? What do you guys think?

BTW Iím 135lb riding a 151 ET which feels like the right size.

im 155 and i ride a 151 so i think a 145 might be a tad too short. i was told by several board shops and i checked a bunch of the size charts and they all say i should be riding something in the 154 range. 151 feels right for me though. i just bought a horrscope fk and it was between that, the artifact and the www. i didnt get the artifaact because of this vid which made it look like a freakin rubber band. im sure its good but it looked a little too soft to me.

from what i was told a shorter board will go slower and a ridiculously soft board like the artifact or www will wobble at high speeds. from what im reading those 2 boards are among the softest on the market.

I have ridden both and I am about the same weight as you and have a Rome Artifact Rocker 152 so take it from someone who has ridden in. If you want a jib board that will SLAY butters presses and Rail get the artifact rocker. I have tried my friends WWW and it just did not do it for me. Its soft but its just no fun to ride. I would say DEFINITELY go with the Artifact Rocker especially with a price you cant beat.

rode both and decided to get the artifact instead. both are sketchy in warp speed but I felt like the artifact held better. fairly equal on rails and boxes
