Rome Agent need advice!

I ride a 157 board and wanted to get a Rome Agent. My problem is that Rome doesn't make a 157 board. So now I'm torn between a Agent 156 and a 158. My weight is 165, the 156 suggested weight is a 160lbs and the 158 is a 180lbs weight class rider. My style is just free riding and getting into some jumps and buttering. I'm just looking for a size that won't hold me down when i freeride or if i do end up hitting the park.

Your seem to be looking at max weights. A 158 shows a variance of 130 lbs to 180 lbs so either one will do fine. For myself I would go with the 158.

The season is almost upon us!!!!

I would go for the 158 because it will give you more more freedom when you freeride.

Ya really, how much of a difference do you actually make. I just went from a 133 board to a 144 board and don't even notice the difference that much. So whatever one you find cheaper, get lol.

i noticed a huge diff from 154 to 152 lol, but weight guidelines means nothing to me at least..i would go for the 154 agent for sure if i were you though. 156 is a tad unwieldy for a 165 pounder in the park and you will be wanting another new board soon if you like park..

2cm is no issue

all those advising that 1cm is not important i agree with. if you want to ride it in the pow then go a bit longer and for park and jib it will ride exactly the same...for me, stability at spedd is where its all at...go the 58!
