losib3257 I have the 2011 Postermania and it is a gem on the groomers and all mountain stuff, while still soft enough for the park and buttering around. Just took it out to Breck with me and handled the blacks just fine. Great speed from the sintered base too.

604al The stiffness ratings on Rome's site seem strange to me. I spent a few days on last years agent rocker (same tech as this year) and it was too soft and loose for me. I attribute that to the reverse shape. I much prefer this years postermania that has flat camber with rocker in the tips... still easy to butter but feels more stable.

Well, I can butter mine, but it's not easy, the Garage Rocker or the Postermania which was suggested would be good for what you are looking for out of Rome. Reverb seems more like my board but in a true twin, not a directional twin. There are other brands of boards you may like though, each with their own take on the new techs out there, all with a slightly different feel.

Hard to tell someone what they will like without having them try it themselves.

There is pretty much everything there you will ever need to know about the board. I really wish other websites were as helpful.....and honest.
Yeah, their website is good with info, and their customer service is superb. Think I will be sticking with Rome for a while. My Anthem cut through nearly pure ice at points on a windy day at Whiteface last week, and not at slow speeds. That's without having any of their Quickrip tech.

if you are really strapped for cash get a blank snowboards reverse 151-$199 bucks and actually a pretty good board.
I didn't realize the Machete was that stiff, riding a Rome Anthem atm so it must feel soft to me, Signal Park Flat is def a good suggestion though, especially with money as an issue pretty good noards for the money.
