Joshua Mornwrote a review of Rome Artifact 1985 Snowboard on October 8, 2009
I have had one full season on this deck and I am impressed. I ride mostly backcountry powder and park. I wanted a playful board that can ride anything, and this delivers. Reverse camber is absolutely epic in deep powder, it keeps the nose up and eliminates having to lean on your back leg.
As for jibbing, nothing competes. The board slides like buttah on any surface from natural wood to plastic with no hang ups to date. The flex is bordering on extreme. I totally agree with everyone saying its not for anything 50+ or hard landings, way to flexy. I even have fun shredding groomers, this type of deck can turn any day, any snow condition, any size mountain into a fun time. Worth checkin out.
