Get back to the best of snowboarding, get the Rome Reverb Rocker Snowboard. The Rome Reverb is loaded with plenty of pop and board feel thanks to HotRods technology and MtnPop Rocker Camber, which increases the boards kick throughout jibs and ollies and allows for perfect float through pow.
MtnPop Rocker Camber Has rocker between the feet with positive camber in the nose and tail to deliver a fine blend of powder float, freestyle playfulness and all-mountain power and pop.
Medium-High Flex Gives you tons of pop and float as you slash through pow, rip through the park or just ride with your friends.
QuickRip Sidecut A unique sidecut geometry that lets the board ride loose and playful at slow speeds and powerful and precise at higher speeds. QuickRip lets a board “ride short” at slow speeds by engaging the mid-section sidecut between the mid-board contact points and lets you “ride long” at high speeds by engaging the full running-length sidecut where the mid-board contact points work to improve edge hold.
Pop Core Matrix A smooth, dynamically-flexing poplar with two zones of low-density wood creates high response in a lightweight package.
Glass Single Barrel HotRods Places a rod of fiberglass in the centerline of the nose and tail for higher ollies and nollies. The single barrel increases longitudinal kick without altering the flex profile.
Basalt Impact Plates Environmentally friendly basalt plates under the bindings to fight against core-compression damage
StraightBiax The glass configuration that steers the board and is torsionally forgiving to keep a super playful feel.
SinterTrue Base Fundamental sintered performance provides abrasion resistance with wax absorption equals all the speed you need.

Decent board only rode it 1 day so far, in spring slushy conditions. I like it for what it is. I usually ride a never summer SL, and wanted something with a little more flex, and a little more forgiving and fun for the spring. For this the board performs as expected. What is not; it is not an all mountain board. Although what really is? Take it from someone who rides over 3 days a week all season long. (Season's where I live last from December to June) there is no such thing as an "All Mountain board" you are always compromising a bit. If it's good most all of the mountain, it's really not going to be any fun in the park, and jibbing. If it's fun for the park and jibbing, it's not going to be all that fun at high speeds, POW, hard pack, or off piste. This board, in my opinion falls into the funer in the park, and jibbing category. Which is what I wanted it for ;) It washed out on bigger jumps, but was pretty decent and fun for smaller stuff and boxes, rails etc. I paired it with the Rome 390 boss bindings, which were very comfortable, but heavier than my Union Forces (mounted on the NS SL) All in all this board acted the way I expected it too. Speed was generally slow, again what I wanted. I measured this against my girl friend, who also rides a NS Infinity. (The SL for girls). Usually I kick her as% down the mountain in any condition and wait at the bottom, today we actually rode together. For the sale price, I think it's mad decent, but I would not want it as my primary board. I always like to buy Made in USA or Made in Canada boards. This board was made in Taiwan, along with the bindings, which is strange cause I researched it, and Rome does have a factory in Canada. I should have called Evo to confirm. I'm sure they would have told me the straight goods. I just find the quality better when it's home grown, and I like to support local manufacturing. Bottom line…. if you're a beginner than honestly it doesn't really matter what board you have, as long as it's not a stiff POW board, or a supper noodle park setup. It's actually most important you have a comfortable boot, with good binding integration. If you're a beginner advancing too intermediate and looking to upgrade, than this might not necessarily be a great fit. In my opinion, there are other companies that do hybrid camber allot better… like NS ;) I find [@] does a pretty fair and honest evaluation if you are looking to upgrade and want more info. If you're an expert, than you probably know more than I do, and should be concentrating on getting sponsored rather than reading reviews! My setup was the 390 boss, with Nike Kaiju boots. Hope this helps you out.

Great board if you love to ride any and all features in the park. Pops for jumps, butters real easy and is just super fun to ride. Would work great for sending it in powder too, but ideally would want a size bigger for that.
