Rome Gang Plank 2015 Review by The Good Ride

The Rome Gang Plank seems to be more of a Jib to Park focused ride that didn’t really have a lot of energy underfoot.  So this is what happens when I loose Peter and Jimbo and don’t ride the board.

Size: 155
Days:  1
Conditions:  Pretty good Sierra Snow
Riders: Peter, Jimbo
Boots:  Burton SLX, Nike Lunarendore
Bindings: Rome 390
Set Up: Centered 15 front -15 back 23″ wide

Approximate Weight: Felt normal

On Snow Feel: Stable and an easy ride to flat base and one foot.

Powder:  No powder but this will perform better than it’s size for a twin because of the rocker in the tip/tail.

Turn Initiation and Carving: So both Peter and Jimbo didn’t really enjoy turning with this board. Both felt it was kind of dead underfoot and not really a board for those who enjoy turning will like.  Carving seemed worse.  It’s much more of a butter around and park feature kind of board.

Speed: Not much speed here.

Uneven Terrain: Seemed fine with uneven terrain but they didn’t really test it too much.

Edge Hold: That Quick Rip side cut gives this board pretty solid edge hold without being grabby in softer snow so it can grip well before it’s de-tuned.

Flex: Pretty playful easy to butter ride.

Switch: Excellent switch.  Better than everything but an asymmetrical board.

Jibbing: Pretty solid jibber and this could work.  I wish Jimbo and Peter would of lapped the park a few times with this.  Those guys are lost without me there to guide them. I feel like the older brother they never wanted.

Pipe: No pipe time.

Jumps: Not that lively underfoot and not much pop despite the pop tech.

So all in all we’d like more time on this board and play around in the park to get a little more of the boards better points to get it’s overall personality.
