I'm looking for a camber-rocker-camber type board, with a narrow waist- something like a Never Summer Proto or SL, but cheaper
and so decided between :
Rome reverb rocker 151 - waist 24.9
Flow drifter 153 - waist 24.4.
Am beginner level: ride groomers, only just started to carve turns and edge to edge, hit tiny jumps, turns switch -but hope to hit the backcountry and park in the future.
I'm 5' 7" , weight varies from 155lb to 165lb. Boot size is US 7, with a small Foot size at 24.7cm.
I think i prefer the Drifter in terms of size, and its a lot easier for me to get a hold of than the Reverb Rocker, but i'm worried the Drifter is too stiff for me, vs the Reverb Rocker being too wide.
I can't seem to find many reviews on the Drifter and specifically how it does on icy conditions.
Has anyone ridden these two boards and can comment on their flex and edge hold on ice? Also how Flow's 'I-rock' and Rome's 'MtnPop' Rocker tech compare to NS RC and c2btx?
