Default 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..

Default 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!
