Forum Recon vs Rome Solution

Here's the deal. There is about a $50 difference. I am a 30 year old beginner buying by his first snowboard. I will pobably never leave a groom trail. Is this money well spent to up grade to the Rome Solution, or should I save the money and stick it into good boots?

Thanks for all the help.

Eww, you're 30?

lol jk I have no idea what either of the boards are like, but if you're a beginner I'd definitely stick the money into the boots, so your equipment is good all around.

I agree with Badmojo you need a well balance set. Boots are very important, if you are riding with uncomfortable boots it can be a pain in the ass. I don't have any knowledge of the forum board but maybe some one here can help you with that. Just make sure yo buy a well balanced set if not soon you will find yourself upgrading and spending more money that you really needed to. Look for good deals there are plenty off half off items all over the internet, you can get a good deal in a good set. Remember to try the boots before buying them, each manufacturer have there own type of boots and some may fit you better than others.

Definitely invest more money into boots that fit great and go for the cheaper board. I personally have a new Forum Recon and it's a great board to learn on. You can find it for about 150 online, and as mentioned above, if has it up it's around ~$125 shipped. It has a lot of flex making it easier to learn. From the reviews Ive read, they're not that great for freestyle riding. I'm strictly a groomed run cruiser/carver myself and it seems to work great for that purpose for the price.
