I noticed this as well when I bought my Rome Gold in December. Based on my weight (around 115-120), their size chart made it seem like I would be better with the 152 (so I would be in the middle of the weight range). After emailing a couple reps from Rome, I ended up getting the 147 (same size as the board I had before that), and am really happy with it even though I was on the upper end of the weight range. I would have been fine going longer as well I think, but I like it a bit shorter for chutes and trees and stuff. It definitely doesn't seem too short compared to the 147 camber board I had before it, so I would be surprised if it was something weird about Rome boards in general. How big is your current board, and is the profile similar to the vinyl rocker?
