Live chat reccomended it. Looked into it and liked its jibbing abilities
Colton E on Sep 30, 2016
I picked this board because it fitted the description of what I needed a board to do. For example flexible, easy to jump, and a board for an intermediate.

Jordon S on Nov 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hey Jordon,

If you look at the key features Rome rates the Rome Shank as a 10 of 10 for jibbing. This should be an excellent jib board.
I got a board that is a little too large can I return it for the smaller size?

you definitely can, but it depends on a few things. Here is our standard return policy:

What does mounting pattern mean? 2x4 4x4
A shopper on Jun 9, 2015
Different Snowboard companies have introduced different ways to mount bindings to a board. The 4 hole mounting system is the standard... 4 screws. The 2x4 and 4x4 are completely compatible to each other and has to do with the spacing between holes... a 4x4 gives you a few more stance options.
Hi, I weigh around 60 kg/130 pounds and I'm around 173cm/5"8. I'm 13 years old and go regularly to an indoor snow dome( at least once a week). I started snowboarding when I was around 7 years old, I only started doing proper park riding around 2 months ago. I have progressed a lot and can do rails, 50 street rails, 50 kink rails, BS boardslide street rails, 15 foot kicker etc. I have been renting a board (burton progression) however it isn't the best of boards and renting it for a year would cost around 300 euros / 320 euros so I think it's time for me to get my own board. I have already found some good boots and binding and I think the Rome shank is the board for me. I will pretty much only be jibbing. I was thinking about the 148 because I want to grow into the board so it can last me a long time. Should I get a 148? Should I look at a different board? Any advice for size of the board or recommendations for a different board would be much appreciated.

Billy J on Apr 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The 148 int he Rome Shank Snowboard should be a good size for you, a good compromise on your height and weight. Unfortunately we do not ship Rome items internationally. Please check out our international shipping page at for more information.
You say this board has a sintered base which is true if last year's model but is not true of the 2015 model it has an extruded base, you might want to change that. Why would Rome down grade their product?
Casey O on Feb 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Casey,Good catch, thanks for keeping an eye out.

As we both know sintered bases take more maintenance (needs to be wax), are more expensive, and are not as dense of a material as extruded.

Being that the Rome Shank Snowboard is a freestyle jib specific type deck, Rome wanted to make the board virtually maintenance free, drop the price point, and have a really hard base material (holds up better against rails/ledges/cement); that's why they made the change.

MSRP for the the 2014 is $399 whereas the MSRP for the $2015 is $349 - I think it was a good move by Rome making it more affordable and better designed to take a beating in the streets and in the park.

What do you think, was it a good idea?
6'0" 155lbs. 11 1/2 for my boots. Currently riding a postermania 155w with an effective edge of 20.Love how it cruises on groomers, but I want to downsize for a shorter and more flexible board. I currently only ride groomers and small park features. Would buying the 148 shank be too much of an overkill? I still would like to hit groomers but would like something smaller for the park. I see that the 148 has an effective edge at 16 but would the waist width be too small for 11 1/2 boots? Am I better off going for the 152 since it has a effective edge of 20, so it'll feel like i'm still riding my postermania at top speeds on groomers yet still slightly more playful in the park?
Ron R on Jan 8, 2015

The Rome Shank Snowboard and the Postermania will feel slightly similar because of their most common trait the profile shape. Other than that the Shank will feel much soft both tip to tail and torsionally because is lacks the carbon v stringers and the impact plates.

If softer and short is what you want, the Shank is where it's at.

Surprisingly the 148cm Shank has a progressively wider waist width of 25.5cm, you should be good to go.

*Usually it's suggested the size 11+ boots should be on boards with a minimum of 25.8cm waist width, but the .3cm (.118110236") really isn't that much of a difference.
i am 5' 7" and about 100 lbs, would this board be good for me in a size 144?
noah g on Dec 23, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Rome Shank Snowboard would work in the 144 due to your weight, but by your height you could even do the 152, so if you are totally park then 144, otherwise the 148 would be a good compromise, as you are growing...
I'm 5' 6" and currently ride a 147 and it's a little too stiff. Would a 144 be to short I skate and do like a shorter board?
Drake B on Dec 14, 2014

If you liek the feel of a short board, get a short board. The 144cm Rome Shank will be prefect for jibs.
Im 5' 6" 160 pounds. would the 144 be to short for me? I grew up skating and do prefer a smaller board i ride a 147 at the moment and like the size of it alot but its a little to stiff for minnesota jib action.
A shopper on Dec 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: You could get away with riding the 144cm Rome Shank Snowboard for some deep press action!
