Rome Anthem vs. Rome Graft.

Im trying to decide on what snowboarding to buy (freestyle) I was thinking about getting the Rome Graft because of some reviews and good things i heard about it but i cant seem to find a shop with that board near me, but i did find a Rome Anthem 41% off and its usually $500!

From what ive seen on the Rome site The Anthem is suppose to be a good board for both mountain and park and transition as well, which is what im really looking for, tho Graft is better for street and park, but not as good for mountain. Which now that i think about it i dont really do street so Anthem is sounding like the better board for me especially since its 41% off!

From writing this and reading it over im think i should go with the Anthem. What do you guys think?

Feel free to post different boards you might think are better as well.

anthem is good for most things, really stiff. graft is pretty much park(?) if it's gonna be your only stick i'd say go for the anthem. plus it looks way cool!

check out the agent. it's in the middle of the two and kills the park and mountain. the anthem is quite stiff, and the graft is quite flexy.

hmm yeah i looked at the agent too, i like flexibility. I live in arizona so the only park i usually go to is sunrise ski resort except for a one week trip to telluride in colorado and sunrises runs are pretty boring for me since ive been boarding them for a quite some time so i usually just chill at the park.

Which, board has the most pop?

I think i might go with either the agent or graft. I dont want a stiff board, im trying to do as much research as i can about some boards and other gear before next season, cant wait! im just starting to get more serious about the sport.

IMHO, if your going to ride mostly park, with only a few trips to a bigger mountain, then get a deck that will fit what the majority of riding is. Here, that is terrain park and thus the Graft seems to the be the clear choice.

I can't speak for the other boards, but I have an Anthem. Useless on the mountain, but on late season crud and groomers, I get a big kick out of it.

i would go for the agent first, graft second, and probably never on the anthem. i dont really agree with romes ratings anyways, and i have been on all three. there very close to the same level of board but for different riding styles, like the same car with different engines for different purposes.
graft park
agent all mt
anthem freeride..
