Default In need of board on a budget, buy used?

I am fairly new at snowboarding but I'm progressing very fast and I would like to buy a snowboard because rentals cost like 50 bucks every time. However, I'm on a very tight budget. Btw, I would like to get into freestyle riding.

I was thinking about buying a used board. It is a Rome Agent 152cm 2006 with Technine Bindings. Is this a good board? I've read much about the Rome Agent. My only concern is that it is a 2006 board, but the owner did say it was only used for 1 season.

another board I was looking at was the Identity Sapient 147cm with Option Bindings. This is supposedly a brand new board. but Sapient boards don't seem to be too popular.

They are both around the same price, which one do you guys think I should go for?
I'm kind of leaning towards the Rome Agent, but as I said, my only concern is the fact that it is a 2006 board. Do you guys think this will be a problem?

attached is a picture of the Rome Agent.
