Just went through my second roam, both were 05's and now Im looking to go else where. I dont really want to spend to much on a flex board, since its a secondary board but it is a must buy because the things are so much fun!

Do the newer roam shapes have the same issues as the 05? (Board ripping apart by bolts) Or should I try an O'brien r5. Im digging the rail warranty but there are no reviews but if the board rides just like a roam then Im sold!

Any info on the newer roams, r5's, or covenants etc would be great.

My recoil finless rides like a roam, but less flex.... the overall ride is pretty similar.

If you want a roam ride you stuck with a roam, but I bet you could pick up a handful, enough to last you your life, for pretty cheap.
