Direct Link To This Post Topic: Review: 154 Rome Reverb Rocker
    Posted: Jan/25/2012 at 5:54am

Board:  154 Rome Reverb Rocker

Conditions: Powder/Packed Powder

Stance: Centered 15/-15                   

Comparison: 2010 -154- Custom V-Rocker

Me: 5'7" 140-145lbs

My Ability – Intermediate to Advanced


 

 Tech Details

·         HotRods: Glass Single Barrel

A rod of fiberglass placed in the centerline of the nose and tail for higher ollies and nollies

·         QuickRip Sidecut Technology

Unique sidecut geometry that lets the board ride loose and playful at slow speeds, and powerful and precise at higher speeds

·         Basalt Impact Plates

Environmentally friendly basalt plates under the bindings to fight against core-compression damage

·         Pop Core Matrix

A smooth-flexing matrix of lightweight Poplar that kicks back energy when you lay into it

·         StraightBiax Laminate

The glass configuration that steers our freestyle boards: torsionally forgiving to keep the feel super playful

·         SinterTrue Base

Fundamental sintered performance: abrasion resistance with wax absorption equals all the speed you need

Day 1: Copper Mountain

Packed Powder at Copper.  Took the board on some bump runs, groomers, and park.  

The board has some pop to it.  Loading up the tip and tail through the jump lines at Copper (medium line) and the board felt smooth.  Hit a couple of the rails and boxes and had no trouble locking on the rails.  The board is about average as far as weight for current year boards.  Had no problem with it’s swing weight for what I need.   Torsionally the board is fairly stiff for me, but if you are in the 160lbs plus range, I think it would be a completely different feel.

Through the moguls and into some powder areas the board handled great.  Kept float so long as I kept the weight back a little (thanks to center mount).  The board has a default centered stance for reference.  Held an edge great on groomers.  The rocker between the bindings and camber under foot is similar to camrock from several other manufacturers that proves to be a good all mtn board rocker.

 

Day 2: Copper Mountain

11-12” of snow fell from lift close to lift open, it was a great powder day. 

I don’t know if it’s possible not to have a good time on a powder day.  So my impression of this board was great.  Excellent float, I like the true twin style for the amount of snow we received.  It’s fun to pop around and ride switch for a bit then change back.  Does force you to keep your weight back but I would rather have the variability to adjust riding conditions

overall:

I would highly recommend this board to anyone looking for an all mountain board that is reasonably priced.  I prefer it over the Agent, although I still really enjoy the Custom V-Rocker.  This board will eventually retire the Custom.  Rome makes very durable boards and I have had great luck with them in the past (I know own 3 of their boards, 2011 Artifact,2012 Reverb and 2013 Whiteroom).
