Advice - best for me!


I am thinking of buying a new snowboard and I am considering mainly 4 boards:

- YES Basic camrock 2012, 155cm
- Ride Machete 2012, 155cm
- Rome Artifact rocker 153cm
- Rome Factory rocker 155cm (unfortunately his one I still couldn’t find in my area, so I am focusing on the other ones)

I was looking for advice on which of these would be better for my case, or even alternative suggestions, considering that I am looking for:

[ 1 ] Board
[ ] Binding
[ ] regular straps
[ ] fast-entry system (Flow/Cinch/..)
[ ] Boots
[ ] Other


Body height: 172 cm
Weight: 73 Kg
Shoe size: 8.5 US

Riding level:

[ 0.2 ] Beginner
[ 0.8 ] Intermediate
[ ] Advanced
[ ] Expert

(I have done 3 years, around 6 or 7 outings per year on average)

Riding style: (multiple selections allowed)

[ x ] Piste [ 50 ] %
[ x ] Powder [ 25 ] %
[ x ] Park [ 25 ] % (future)
[ ] Rails [ 0 ] %

Special requests: Flexible, easy to lift one foot with the other in the ground, but still some pop. Good to start learning jumps and tricks. Appropriate to go on either side. Doesn’t catch on the edges to much when going straight, but still easy to turn and control. Not too buttery in the sense that it doesn't rotate on itself in response to very little impulse. Behaves at least reasonably well in all environments (ice, powder, etc.). Good to progress with for some 4+ years on a 5-8 outings per year basis. More on the light side (although no need to be extra light). Molds easily to bumps in the terrain. Doesn’t need to be too fast, I am more worried about being comfortable progressing without too much tension.

Thanks a lot for the advice
