reverb rocker...

nobody's got one of these???.....lol
i'm surprised.

for the price, I think this board is the ISH!!....yea, yea,...now rome boards are made in china...but they're designed in the US......oh well, compromise can be
necessary....but it's sad they can't make em here and keep the price down.

anyway.....FOR the price you get a pretty damn nice board...
I have the 2012...yea,. I know but I got it in 2013 for a steal....
https://sites.google.com/a/d10f.alex...40971033828385
and used it last season for the first time in place of my beat to shit neversummer revolver. (still kickin' though!)

way more pop than the NS.....but I think that's just cuz it was new.....
the more I use it the more it will soften up.
it presses nice,...it's light,....agile,....sintered base,...yadda

basically a good quality board for someone not lookin' to break the bank...
it'll get it done...but doesn't have all the bells and whistles of a $500 board.
if you're gonna beat your board and want to progress without worrying about alittle ding here and there,.....this is a good one to try.
never had any problems charging or carving on this one,....performs nice in the park.
check it out!

how is it?

Any other opinions on this board? I need a board that handles jumps and jibs very well.

I have the same board... 2012 Reverb Rocker Wide 158 (mine is green and white).

It's a great all-around deck. Rome classifies it as a stiff board, but it really has a playful feel... Very butter-able. Has a good mount of pop, performs well enough on jumps and jibs, but where I really think it excels is in powder. Set the stance back slightly and it has a SERIOUS amount of float... Tons of fun to ride.

It's never going to be the fastest board, and it's not the quickest edge to edge, but still rides well enough on groomers that you won't get frustrated. A little noticeable chatter when bombing at high speeds, but that is to be expected with this type of board.

I bought a K2 Slayblade 161 as the ying to the Reverb Rocker's yang. A more aggressive, quicker board for riding stable at higher speeds. I love having these two in my quiver... I plan on bringing both on my trip to Whistler in March.

I would recommend the Reverb Rocker to someone who is an intermediate rider and wants a versatile board that isn't too hard to ride, but will work for them as they push their limits to improve. I've taken this thing everywhere, from park to powder glades, and it hasn't disappointed yet.

Bought a reverb rocker last month and I love it. It just feel so natural and easy to ride. Holds an edge well enough on east coast conditions. I havent washed out once yet. I got one a few cm short for my size (According to the size chart) but it still feels good. I take this board to the park and it rips there as well, from not so technical jibs to medium jumps, the board works.
