The good K2 152 WWW rocker rome 390 s/m K2 t1 8.5
Stance width 22" 18, -15

I loved the romes the flex was great and I felt very attached to the board its like there wasn't even a binding there. Its like I was directly connected to the board with bare feet. They are also light and VERY comfortable. The ankle strap has a great soft gel in it. I couldn't even tell the straps were there.

The www rocker took a run to figure out how to ride it and once I did it was a blast. Once I loosened up and just went with it the, board was a pleasure to ride, much more fun than my del rey and more forgiving. I haven't gotten it on the rails or boxes yet, but will update when I do.
In short I recommend both products.
what size board did you get?

But a 152 jib board you are supposed to downsize 5cm as per the company's recommendation should support someone my size. I would agree with that if I was talking about a 147...
i would stick to the stepchild that you like. the k2 was not made for you. have you tried the horrorscope?
