The Rome Butterknife allows you to go from the dinner table to the slopes without missing a beat. Butter down anything and everything with ease on this board, while you destroy every feature you see. No Hang-Ups Rocker profile with 3D camber features a wide, flat area between the feet that lifts slightly at the contact points at the tip and tail, the tip and tail curl to create a concave section that delivers a loose, pressable, and floaty feeling. Pointed shape of the No Hang-Ups diamond helps you track straight and load your ollies. Butter Out technology elongates the transition zones for stability in awkward landings and holding manuals and presses longer. The Quickrip Sidecut technology lets the board ride loose and playful at slow speeds, and powerful and precise at higher speeds. Impact Plates and Impact Base provide protection when throwing down some butters.
Pop Core Matrix-Low density wood in two zones through the board for a lightweight profile with a flexible poplar matrix
HotRod Glass-Added pop in the nose and tail, without all the added cost of their carbon cousins
StraightBiax Laminates-Designed for the fun and creative rider, this laminate has a forgiving response through presses, jumps, and jibs
Whats up Leo here. I just got off the 2013 Rome Butterknife in a 152. This board is going to get a 4 out of 5 star from me. Surprisingly given the name of it, butterknife, it's not really that much of a butterboard. It's actaully surprisingly stable under groomers. It's an icey day out of today and just being held at edge like no bodys buisness, which is very surprising to me. It is softer, a little softer in the middle, stiffer in the tips so you get a ton of pop. They have this little carbon rod going through here in the tip so adds to the pop. Again I give this a 4 out of 5 stars. This is going to be for you intermedaite all mountain freestyle ride.
Hi I'm Rob I just got off the Rome Butterknife. I give this board 4 out of 5 stars. Really fun playful board. You know it's that perfect board for that park guy. The control of the board, I felt like I had a ton of control. Super super easy to turn and easy to use at the lower speeds. It's a little soft at the higher speeds still a really solid ride. Just that a perfect board for that really solid intermediate park kid or guy.
Hi David here. I just got done riding a 2013 Rome Buttermilk. I dont give out too many 5 stars ratings, but I think this one deserves a 5. For what it is, it's an intermediate level all mountain deck and at that catagory and for under $400 this board is superb. It's snappy edge to edge and carves really well and even holds a super aggressive carve on icey terrain. It just performs really well. It's snappy it's got good pop for ollies and you know for $400 bucks you cant go wrong with this board.
