3 board size

if your boots don't fit into the bindings well it can become pretty uncomfortable, the easiest way to get it right is to buy bindings from the same company as the boots.

If you can't try on boots at a store at least order from a store that does free returns, try them on at home, make sure your heel is held nice and tight.
Yeah it's 2013 model, to bad the graphics isn't that good. But think I'll go with it since its 150$ cheaper than a reverb, even thought CRC looks pretty sweet.

Jibstick- Too one dimensional for your goals.
Playback- Flat rock (self described beginner/intermdiate model)
Happy Hour - Lifted/Tweekend - I would suggest a demo first. Very unusual feel.
T1 - Flat

I would highly suggest that you look to a CRC or RCR model for this deck. It will get you exactly where you want to be.
Think I'll go with the Happy Hour, seems like a good board and I'm sure I'll get used to it. Many good reviews! Gonna be a hell of a color combo though

What does CRC & RCR stand for? Camber-Reverse-Camber and Reverse-Camber-Reverse?

Board- I think the ride machete is a really good all around board that is very durable, i demoed one a few years ago and really liked it. Next the T1, solid board, flat base is more stable than the all rocker boards.
Yeah I would do that, if it were possible.. All the shops around here has a very limited supply of diffrent boots so, sadly, there's not much to test

How do you know they fit? I guess they fit since they are both the same brand.

Yeah I was very into the T1 at first, so hard

Rome's weight range on the 154 tops out at 185. You will be much better suited for the 157 in that model.
Yeah I know it's a little bit short but those 3cm cost 150$ extra What about the other models? How much of a diffrence is there between extruded and sintered base?
