Rome Anthem 156 vs. Burton Custom 156
I am going to buy a new board soon. I was all set to buy a custom 156, but then I started lookin more at the romes. I love the look of the Anthem and believe that it is a better quality board. I will be using it on a small resort on hardpacked and icy conditions, doing a few big jumps and the random rail or box. I weigh 175ish so I wanted to get a 156 board and be able to throw it around easy. I am an intermediate rider.
What do you all think. Will the rome be too stiff? Is the custom bad on icy conditions? Will the 1 degree base edge bevel on the rome need to be tuned to 2 degrees for doing small tricks and boxes etc? What degree does the custom have? How light is the Anthem compared to the custom?
Let me know what you think. I really like the specs of the custom, 10mm setback vs. 20 mm setback, softer flex, but man that anthem looks sooo sweet and I think it will be more stable bombing down the hill.
Please help me decide. If you have experience on these boards let me know what you think of them.
