Default a board thats comparable to Rome Agent?

So I've been board shopping for a little while. I've been riding an Academy Rhythm 157 for the past 3 years, and its been gettin kinda weared and teared, as I'm riding mostly Northeast bump and grind shit.

Not too many powder days, as I'm in the northeast, but I go at last once or twice a weekend...I can usually average between 20 and 30 days a season. Been riding for over 10 years.

I ride mostly all mountain but I love to run laps in the park if its a nice day...that's why I was thinking the Rome Agent, but of course everyone and their mother seems to be buying this board and I can't find it anywhere, the 08 model at least. I'm a broke college kid so the $500ish tag on the 09 model is a little too much for me.

Any recommendations for a board thats comparable to the Agent?

What size are you looking for and how much are you looking to spend? '09 Agents can be found in the $300 range.

sorry about that...

I've been riding a 157 and I like the size on that...I'm pretty sure there's a agent 156...thats the one i'm really interested in. I'm willing to spend anywhere between 200 and 300. I've been watching brociety like a hawk to see if anything comes up.

whereabouts are these $300 09 agents?

Started last season on an 09 Agent, but ended up getting a Never Summer Evo-R (reverse camber with camber below the binding areas) and couldn't have been happier. The Agent was a great board however, the only reason I gave it up was that I got a pro-form on the NS. Both are great for doing a little bit of everything on the mountain.

the rome agent is pretty much a twin but a versitle board. what i reccomend is the never summer circuit. it is a true twin but with the rocker/camber design it floats really well in powder and the full length wood core and rubber damping provides classic neversummer stability and speed, and at $399 thats a great deal.
The P-tex sidewalls are signature to neversummer; making it the most durable board on the market. Of course, this is a freestyle board so the softer flex and damping makes it a great park and jib board as well.
