park jump deck

I want to progress my riding on jumps I have hit around 30 to 40 ft jumps but just straight air because I don't get to ride jumps that size or bigger more than once or twice a season based on where I live. Right now I have a rome artifact traditional camber deck that I love but notice if I land backseat it loops out and that is just off of small cliffs. So I was looking to get another camber deck that is fairly park oriented. I have been looking at a rome agent, does anyone have experience with this deck or have another camber suggestion?

The Agent is an excellent jump deck, good choice. If you're just getting into booters the Nitro Team is another good cambered jump board that has a radial sidecut that makes it track real nice on run-ins. It's also an easy board to initiate spins on. It's a little more forgiving than the Agent. Those are two of my favorite cambered jump boards. The Signal OG is another one I would group with those two.

None of those decks are cambered except the Mod which is or was a pretty stiff board, Rome's stiffest cambered deck. The Agent would be a better match for his specs.

The Villain isn't a "cambered deck" not for me or anyone else. It has a rocker profile built-in as does the Poster's Artifact that he complained about. I wasn't trying to play "gotcha" with your post, simply pointing out that he specifically asked for regular camber profiles. Which do by the way make some of the best jump decks for obvious reasons.

That Mod you recommended is a kickass cambered deck but it's uber stiff and might be a little more board than he needs for where his riding is at. The Agent has a little more flex which makes it easier to load and the narrower waist width makes it fun on the mountain.
