Rode the Rome Factory Rocker 161 for the first time last night and loved it! My old board was a Sapient Stash 164 flat rocker.
What a difference between the two boards. The Rome is so much more responsive edge to edge, faster, holds an edge so much better and it's surprisingly stiffer which I wasn't expecting. I'd say the only thing I miss from my old board is the softer flex. Totally happy with this new purchase and for $160 it can't be beat. Also, my Flow Flite bindings worked just fine with this new setup.
Thanks for your input!

At that price for that profile, it's a great value. It's a board that does everything pretty well, but it does have limitations. That's all I mean.

I replaced this board with a Proto, which is better in almost every way. But a Proto costs a lot more.

Although Rome says it's a medium flex board it really is pretty soft (especially torsionally) given the light weight. I found it to be surfy and playful. Hitting a side stash or two. It's not for railing hard carves or bombing or huge drops/jumps. If you use it for what it's good for you'll have a good time.
