can't decide on a board

I was set on the rome reverb rocker before, as you propably know from my last thread. Now I found the rome postermania and was wondering which is better. I want an all moutain freestyle board so I can carve and do park and jumps. I am looking at the 2012 models of these boards.I have thirtytwo binary boa boots and rome 390 boss bindings. I'm 5'8" 120 poundssize 9.5 boots if that matters also.

Poster is a beefed up Artifact. The rocker profile on the Reverb will better suit you.

Why would the reverb rocker be better?

Well I already said I want to be able to do everything, carve, pow, park, jumps. And they are both like the same price.

Rome reverb rocker. Theyre both the same when it comes to jibbing, and jumps. But if you want to carve then Id go with the reverb

Is the reverb rocker just a better board overall? If I wanted to do more park then would the postermania be better?

I would go with the reverb overall, its better park wise and mountain wise. Thats why its one of the top all mountain freestyle boards. It can carve and is very playful in the park.

The poster is just 1 step behind

Yea I am going to go with the reverb rocker, no one has ever mentioned the postermania to me before and I have posted a few threads on here and other forums so it must not be that great. Also the reverb rocker looks a lot better, the postermania is ugly.

Its the camber profiles. the Poster is flat to rocker where as the Reverb is rocker camber. So with the Reverb you can push on those cambered zones under your feet for a bit more oomph in a turn.
