Default First post!! Looking for new board

Hey all, just joined this great forum. Been snowboarding for 2 years now, prob a total of 12 trips. I been hitting the park a lot last year and looking at progressing. I got a Rome machine 2010 I believe . I weigh 200-210 6ft 2in the machine is a 159. So I been looking at a softer board , because I also like to do butters. I was looking at the Rome artifact 155. With the contact bindings( can't remember the name of the bindings) is this a good board. I don't hit jumps that' much and I'f so not huge. I hit rails a lot and do some all mountain riding but I ride in NJ and Pennsylvania so the mountain isn't big. Any suggestions would be good, board and binding setup thx.

Stoked. The Artifact is an Amazing deck. Please post up your foot size as well so we can all make some solid suggestions.

Hi,

The Artifact Rocker 155 Wide will be a lot of fun for you. This is a pure skate style deck and will be awesome for rails, presses, butters, boxes etc. If you has stressed the All Mountain part of your description, that would be a different story but for an amazing play board on a smaller mountain...you cannnot find better.

390's in L/XL or Flow M9 XL will be sick.

Alright thx man. Would I be able to take off my , I think Rome arsenals off my other board for the time being and use them, don't have the funds for bindings at the moment. Should be interchangeable correct, no matter the year?

Our top choices for conventional bindings are Rome and Flux. We have had nothing but incredible relations with those brands - AWESOME people that make extraordinarily durable snowboard products. But...I am entirely biased.

Alright , been looking at the 390's lot of people saying they have problems with it being a bit to small for 13 size boots, and Iwould not perfer the m9, any other suggestions? I saw the flux tt30's how are they?
