Josh N.wrote a review of Rome National Snowboard on February 12, 2017
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Rome has outdone themselves with the National. This is one of the best built, balanced most dialed in boards I've ever ridden. Its masquarading as a high-end twin freestyle board when really it rides more like a cost is no object, super premium handmade destroyer of all things snow. The National will outcarve anything on the hill, the camber profile with the flat zones at either end make for perfectly calculated turn initiation and a much looser playful feel than most of the powerful moutain charging machines on the market. This also gives the national a "I can do it all" type feeling, it floats really well, its totally playful at lower speeds and it is a freight train when let loose. It has landing gear for days, feels stealth underfoot and is an absolute blast to rip groomers on. This is the board that has replaced the Rome Mod in my quiver as a go anywhere do anything beast. The National is basically a Mod-Pro; its quieter, faster, lighter and meaner.
