Hey new to the board.........

Hey wats up first off. Im from Central Jersey and been snowboardin for about 5 years in Poconos, NJ and Canada. I wouldnt call myself advanced or anything but im definitely no beginner. I like to just cruise down the mountain and hit jumps. I hit the rails once in awhile.

I need alittle help choosing another board. I been checking the site out and was planning on getting the K2 Darkstar but ive been seeing some bad reviews about it being too stiff and thin. I have a 10.5 boot size, 5'10, 165lbs. I was also checking out the Burton Custom and the K2 Believer. If you got any input or new suggestions for a board on how i ride let me know. Im not trying to pay over 400 for the board. Ive been seeing a lot of good things about Rome Boards too. thanks

Where did you find reviews saying the darkstar was too stiff and thin? The believer and the Darkstar are both what you are looking for.

Take every review with a grain of salt.

Yea i do trust me. I see a lot of people on here suck off Rome. I dont know much about Rome and how good or bad they are. I usually hear good things about them though. Should i look more at the Rome Agent or K2 Darkstar

How about the 2008 Burton Custom board? Sierra Snow has it half off. Any reviews on this board compared to the new Darkstar?
