Rome Mod Rocker - Right for me?
Haha, oh man. I was like yesss, account activated to post thread.
Anyways, sorry, noob question.
Been looking for a new snowboard, I randomly bought a 2006 Rossignol 155CM, back in 06, and looking to upgrade.
I'm 5'6, 165lbs, Size 9 boot, looking at a 153CM Mod Rocker 2012. Gonna be using my Ride LX's on it.
I read about every review there is on here, and on Google, and there's a lot of positive reviews, but some people are talking that it's a really advanced board, and it's not good to progress on, etc. I was wondering if that really is true, especially since a lot of people describe it as an all-mountain board which is exactly what I want.
That had me worried a bit, I'm about 40% groomed, 40% tree, 20% park, but definitely trying to get out groomers and start doing a lot more park. I'd say I'm an upper intermediate. Jumps are probably the most interesting for me, and from the reviews it sounds like this is awesome, boxes a bit, but def. hate rails since I got a concussion off of one.
A part of me wants to just say screw it, and not worry about the reviews, but I'm a bit obsessive with what I buy, especially since I'm spending a lot.
