Default Looking for a new park board

Hey guys, I'm looking to get a more park oriented board for this season since I have a more all-mountain board already. I'm looking at the 2008 Flow Era and also the Nitro T1. Any input on these or others in this range?

If you plan on doing mostly rails/boxes/ ect. then get the artifact or artifact 1985
If you plan on hitting jumps more than rails then go with the graft.

If you are set on Rome, then those are the two park boards to go with.

yeah romes are looking good for what I need. I probably wont be affording a 09 costing 370 though. Anybody got any other boards to consider? I'll be using it for about 90% park and a few freeride runs. got any recomendations on finding 08 models?

i do pretty much what you do 90% in the park and a few freerides and some woods trips thrown in there and i ride a burton dominant. i love it. it rides like a champ and it wasnt too expensive.

Ride DH, Never Summer Evo, Capita Stairmaster, or Forum Manual. The Forum will be tough to find just like an 07-08 Rome Artifact. The boards were so popular among park riders, that they are almost completely sold out (I have talked with reps at both companies trying to find both boards). You can get the Evo off of evogear.com in a 155 for under $300 right now, the board kills in the park, if I didn't just get my DH, I would buy the Evo in a heartbeat.
