Yeah I'm still choking down the cost of brand new Ride SPi's and today I had to get some new boots because the old ones were just cashed. Hopefully work picks up and I get some good hours. I'd like to have my Graft by the end of March. I'm going to shoot for the 153 flavor which should be great for me considering that I weigh about 175 right now. Thanks for doing the shopping for me I was planning on going through the-house.com because of free shipping and some snazzy free shades


Oh yeah and since you have one in your grasp will you verify for me that it has steel edges and not brass like the Artifact? Im really hard on edges so brass wouldn't cut the mustard.

When the fuck did we get ice cream?

Some of you fools said you were, or just had, picked-up a Graft. Post up your reviews. I'd be curious to see how others views of this deck compare to mine.

I'm getting ready to pull the trigger for a Graft. But, I've only been able to find a 158. I'm 5-11, 163lbs. Would this board be too big?

This Friday I'll be getting my new 2009 153 Rome Graft. After I ride it a couple times I'll post up some reviews.

how is this board for a noob? i rode about 5 times this year and picked up this board yesterday...after reading the review..it doesn't seem like it's the board for me right now...i learned to carve now and eventually get into the parks..but mostly this year will be up in the mountains and hills in ontario...looks like this board is mostly for park use..im also 225 lbs 5"10 size 10 boots and the board is 160..should i go for a stiffer board for now or will this be noob friendly as well?

Thanks!
