We are now considering Rome Lo-fi (11/12 season) as an option. Can someone advice if it's much more simple comparing to TPM or it's going to be ample for the intermediate female rider needs? And which size suites best for 5'4" / 124lbs,
boot size 7? Many thanks in advance!
Guys, i am an idiot )) TPM=TRS
TPM is a team i am working for and last night i was really under stress ))

yea I defiintely agree. I ride a 154 TRS primarily and I certainly wouldnt recommend it for backcountry.

A couple others I spotted:

Drake DF2: Haven't found too many reviews or tests yet.
Nitro Subzero Hotwing: Came across a couple really negative reviews of Nitro's 'gulwing' profile.
Forum Youngblood Doubledog: Seems to be more park oriented, not sure if it's perfect for hardpack/pow.
Smokin superparkForum Destroyer Doubledog.
Apo MTD: It's supposed to be an allmountain freestyle board, but it only gets a 5 and a 6 on Apo's own carving and powder scale.

They all happen to be available in 152/153cm on a webshop I found, last year's models, for about half of what a new libtech would cost me.

What's the general consensus about these brands and models? Anyone any experience with any of those? If it's not agains forum rules, I think I'm gonna make a new thread of this after all, I've sorta derailed...:s

Thanks.
Superpark - see my post in your other thread.

KungMartin The irony. You don't even know why I mentioned the banana tech in the first place. GTFO.

You just have no clue what you are talking about. That is like saying they all have a base - big fucking deal.
