Rome Garage Rocker - 2011

http://www.snowboard-review.com/images/brands/rome/logo/rome_logo.gif

What with the recession, house price crash and share prices going through the floor everyone is that little bit less well off. Do not fear, champion of the poor snowboarder, Rome Snowboards has put together a snowboard capable of tearing apart your local park with a buttery soft flex and durable construction. Now you can afford a new snowboard and a season pass.

Manufacturer's Description:

Poprock Technology for the People!  Some riders sacrifice income for the sake of the shred.  Others treat their snowboards like skateboards—use ‘em hard, wear ‘em out, and replace ‘em.  And some of these riders want the buttery-ass, press-with-pop feel of a Poprock reverse camber board.  Armed with Glass Reverse-Free Stringer Technology, the Garage Rocker lets these riders kill the local fun box and get floaty in pow.

How will this do on big ass jumps and powder?

Hey Halldor, the rocker profile will help with float so it’ll work as well as any rockered twin in powder. Big jumps… there are definitely better boards in the Rome line-up for riding big features. Check out the Agent rocker and Pusher if you want a board that like getting airborne in a big way.

yo i was just thinkin of buyin a new freestyle board, and i thought of rome… due to the fact that i want a low till medium price rocker, and a wide(size 12 us (45 euro 30cm 11 uk) so wideboard for sho) i found the garage rocker 154w… i will mostly use it on medium sized features and for buttering the entire resort… is the rome garage rocker 154w a good choice?

Hey Toni K. aka TKToni or TK

For a low to medium priced twin rocker board, the Garage Rocker is on the money. It’s spec is pretty similar to any board of it’s price. Biax Glass, Extruded base, full wood core… erm that about it. Perfect if you just want a board to hit small to medium sized features and want a board that won’t tear your heart out if you damage it. Just me sure to take an extra couple of meters run-in on the jumps when the weather warms up.

how soft is it on a scale 1 to 10????

Where to begin… This board is only good for two things- Park and Powder. Floats in the trees and on pow really well. I’ll credit that to the rocker. Great for jibs and rails/boxes. Not good for the big jumps on the park but can take the small ones well. Really soft. I can press this board really high. Brutal on the groomers and catwalks. Forget any moguls. I used to track my mph on the hill with an app using my other board but this one’s so slow I don’t ever bother… There’s this weird drag on the groomers that seems to be a defect. I contacted the company and they told me to get a base grind (on a brand new board). Top sheet came up after the first day. I’ve had about 15 days on it so far and have epoxied 3 different spots where the top sheet peeled. It’s still fun to ride but I’m sure there’s better soft park rockers. Guess it’s all relative to the cost.
