Default board recomendations and thoughts

Hi all,

Okay after 14 years on my current rig ( Burton Canyon 156) I have decided to buy a new board. I would like to get out of Burton, although my Canyon has been fantastic, I am looking for suggestions on other good all mountain boards. I will ride probably 50/50 mountain/park. I have really just started taking a liking to the park last year and would like to move to a bit more park friendly board without sacrificing much freeride performance. I have been looking at the Rome Agent 158 or 160. Throw out any suggestions on other boards, or where I can pick up a 09 Agent for a great price. I am alittle stuck on the sizes, I am 5'11" about 180-185. I am leaning towards a 158 because I am coming off a 156 now and I would like a bit more park mobility. Thoughts or suggestions?

Thanks

What are some other recomendations. Would love to get a 08/09 with a max of 350. I dont really go enough to justify spending 500. But Ebay being what it is give me some examples of boards that could be gotten in my price range.

Hell, you could probably buy a Sims or Lamar and it'd still be a helluva upgrade over that 14 year old thrash stick.

I know some guys that ride the Agent and they really like it. I'm not familiar with the Slash. Rome generally makes solid boards though.

The Slash is the wide version of the Agent. The LSV is a nice boat by the way. I have one too.

Nice! Yea they are solid!

Yea after looking over some specs I just realized that is the wide version. I only wear 10-10.5 boots so I dont need a wide. Too bad good price!

True, but it has been a great deck, and I live in AZ so it does not get out as much as most! Still in great shape!
