Elan Inverse is the lightest out there. Nidecker has the mega light and ultra light I believe. The Ultra being a very light board too.

There's also the LibTech Cygnus X1 and the Ride TMS UL that are super light weight boards. I feel like there's one we're missing though that is in that same class...
In terms of the Rome Agent, it's light but it's not at the same level as the others that are designed specifically to be super light. What are you trying to do with this ultra light board? Most of them are designed to just basically go really, really fast and that's it...

hmmmm..so super light boards like the arbor and the libtech wont be very good at the park, like rails and and all that? thats where im kinda confused. i guess what im getting at, is im looking for a really light board thats really good for the park as well. and maybe the agent is the board for me then. unless the arbor is good for that or better. i mean, i know im being anal, but if im gonna spend 500 bucks i wanna make sure im getting the best for my money lol. u guys are being so helpful tho

You don't need to spend anywhere near $500 for a great board. What in the park are you looking at doing more? Jibbing, kickers, pipe, or a little bit of everything? And how long have you been boarding?

I don't think I am wrong here, light boards are not really designed to go fast. They'll chatter out when you really get up to speed. A more burly board is what you are going to want.

Most of the light boards seem to have the function of being a backcountry freeride board or park applications. At least that is how I have read into it. I just can't see one of the light boards being something I want to take down a steep groomer at speed. I am planning on going to the dealer demo days at Loveland this year, I'll make it a point to take a Vapor out if it's available.
