It's my first board and while shopping I fell in love with the idea of a mixed-camber board. I've taken it out a few times and it handles as well or better than the rentals I've previously ridden. I have no real complaints about this board and would recommend it as a good first board for anybody.

I bought this for my son earlier this year and then waited for snow. We got on the hill last weekend and he loved it for four runs. On the fifth run he bumped up against a fence and then discovered at the bottom of the run the nose was broken. Be careful with this one, seems very fragile.

Comments about Rome Factory Rocker Snowboard 2014:

I've had this board for a few months now and so far it is a great turnout. The factory rocker is a lightweight board that is great for either hitting the park or shredding some fresh powder. Overall a fantastic board for your buck.

        This board is great for all around use. With the camber design on this board you will definitely notcie the pop of the board under your feet while jumping. I would definitely recommend this product as it is a great all around board.

            I got this board right before a weekend trip to Whistler and was very impressed! It's a lot of board for the price, though I thought it could have been a bit faster.

              Coming from an older board, this board blew me away! Lightweight and fast on groomers, while floating thru powder. Lots of pop to give you lift off of jumps and perfect edges that aren't catchy on flats but grab great on carves.

                I love the board already. I bought it specifically for the twin shape and rocker camber setup. It's great.
