Almost every board has a little bit of overhang, you should be fine though. I have the 32 lashed, Rome Libertine and both are no problem on this board. Depends on the boot also, different boots are different sizes.

In general though, like BA said. A 10 on it will be fine on the board.

Awesome, after what my buddy said I really didnt want to go wide, plus because of my body weight the wide only comes 152 or 156 and I'm a little upset I even have to do a 153 for the reg, wanted a short board this year but I guess it's either cut a limb off, stop lifting, or settle for a bigger board haha

Yeah like they were saying you'll be one on a reg. I wear size 10 vans boots and I ride my artifact regular and it works perfect.

Have you checked out the shank you can get on the 49 just fine with a 10.

No what's the shank?

And the artifact has a 150 but it says max weight is 170, kind of wanted a shorter board, I enjoy it more for spins and want to begin flipping this year but I don't plan on cutting weight so I'm assuming the 153 has to suffice unless you guys think I'm safe on a 150 being over weight 10-15lbs

Ok talked to a rep at EVO.com and he's saying that with me being 180 I'm fine on the 150 even though the board size chart says 170. He said they more so are saying that if I'm over 170 and trying to ride on powder, etc it'll be hard. He said that if I am 5'5 180 and want a strictly park board and maybe so a couple regular runs out of the day, 150 is the board to get. What you guys think?

He said the board isn't going to snap and since I'm 180 an athletic, not obese at 5'5 I will have no problem maneuvering the board and picking up speed on it.

Final opinions? Rome artifact rocker 150, or 153?

Artifact and Mod are different boards. Don't get me wrong, the Artifact can still do what the Mod can. But not as well. The Artifact is a noodley jib/park oriented board and the Mod Rocker is a park/ all mountain board. They both can hold their own outside of their specialties, but aren't going to be superb. Those are the stats, it's up to you to take it and decide what you like best. Ride them if you get the chance before buying them.

I decided on the artifact. The shank is double the budget for this season.

Now it's just deciding the size. 150 or 153
