Should I get a 59 Rome Anthem? Yay or nay?
I found a Rome Anthem 159 online for what seems to be a fair price. I'm wondering if it's the right board for me. According to the Rome website, this board seems tailor made for me but I wanted some real feedback. I'm 5'10, ~155 lbs, and I would like a stable high speed carving board. But I would also like one thats somewhat forgiving to cruise around with when I feel like it. Not gonna freestyle with it. I will mainly be riding in SoCal conditions... hard stuff and slush... no pow, only groomers. Will a 59 be too long/stiff?... I currently ride a 58 Forum which is a "4" on their flex scale and I want a more advanced board.
I saw a pic of the topsheet for the '09 model. Curious if they made any changes too the specs that I should hold out for...
Is $275 total (would be $255 shipped, damn CA sales tax!) shipped a fair price?
