Hi, first time on this forum but would appreciate some advice!

It's time to trade in my trusty 07/08 Rome Anthem (which I love!) but what's next?

I've been boarding for 25 years (just 1 or 2 weeks a year), and I guess I'm at a decent standard. Parks, rails and tricks are not really my thing (and too old to start!!) but I love to bomb around corduroy pistes (groomers), carving all the way...I prefer cruisey blues and reds for controlled speed and carving...though happy enough on blacks with quicker turns. I also love powder on a groomed piste when I can get it...and fishtailing/surfing my way through late afternoon soft spring snow.

My Anthem has been great (directional, fast, pretty stable) but after 12 years it's time for a new board - hopefully one that will help me improve my boarding technique and maybe try new things??

A local shop suggested the Jones Flagship or Yes Pick Your Line.
Any thoughts?

Those two boards will certainly look after you. I picked up a cheap carbon flagship from eBay and all I can say is "wow". It's the most confidence inspiring board I've ever strapped on.

Take a look at the nidecker megalight as well. It's a real sweet ride, great on and off piste but softer than the flagship if that how you like it
