Exclamation Best Freestyle/park/pop/light board.

Best Freestyle/park/pop/light board

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So pretty much i love the park, im an instructor and im lookin at some boards because ya know its gettin to be that time where everything is a bit cheaper. Im one of those guys who think burton is over priced for what your actually gettin, dont get me wrong, they are good boards. So check this out and please help me decide on the lightest, poppiest, park/freestyle board.

-ROME: the Agent and Design
-BURTON: the Custom, Dominant, Shaun White
-FORUM: Youngblood and Destroyer
-K2: WWW
-Capita: Stairmaster

If you have even tried any of these boards and you know what your talkin about, well tell me about em.

the k2 WWW is a noodle so its not too poppy but its a really fun board and amazing on rails, you can never go wrong with rome they make great boards, the agent has been a favorite by their team because of its poppyness and how well it works everywhere especially in park, the design is more of an all mountain board with a more dirctional shape so i wouldnt go with that. forum is burtons little sister burton gobbeled them up along with jeenyus in their quest for total snowboarding domination so you are basicly getting a burton board with a different name on it. but the destroyer is a poppy board but its quite stiff along with the youngblood shaun white and custom. the dominant is more in the middle for stiffness its a bit softer than the rest of burton/forums boards.

From what I have read/heard/researched:
Rome Graft for pure park, Rome Agent if you want something that can handle more mountain, Slash for wide version of Agent.
K2 Darkstar for a very poppy park board, Believer for something that can handle more mountin, AfterBlack for wide version of Darkstar.

No question the Agent will be more of an all-mountain deck than the Graft. However, I own a Graft and have taken it everywhere. If you know what your doing, it will get the job all-over....but again, see my first sentence.

Hells Yes! I did a pretty extensive review of it on here. Just do a search of "rome graft review" and should be able to find it.

^^^ The coupon for Porter's Tahoe is BACON for 10% off. So you could get the Graft for $226.79 if that's the right size for you.

EDIT: Coupon code looks like it's been changed to 10% off, so I changed my original post.
