Rome agent or Rome Graft?

Alright so at first I was set on getting a artifact rocker in a 147 for this season but I want to get better at big booters this season and i realized getting an artifact rocker wont help me with that. I'm thinking getting a positive cambered poppy board in a smaller size will help me get better at sticking spins and shit on bigger jumps without sacrificing my jibbing abilities. I'd totally get the graft if it came in a 147, but the smallest is a 149, so I'm starting to lean towards getting an Agent in a 146....or will an artifact rocker 147 be fine??? Help me.

Oh, and last season I would hit booters but sometimes had trouble getting speed and i always nailed the knuckle so the extruded base on the artifact rocker woudln't help much with that either...

Why not a Graft Rocker or Postermania instead of two boards?

if i went with the aritfact rocker id go alittle longer cause a short board like in the 140s is gna wash out on landings personally from what it seems like u want, i would go with the agent rocker, ive gathered tons of info on it this past month and it seems a sweet board

Graft is my main go to board unless I am in near "powder" (I live on the east coast). It's a good deck.

I'm feeling graft in a 149 for sure. I weigh 130 hopefully 135 by winter and the recommended weight for the graft 149 is 85-140lbs.

My bad, I misunderstood. I though you were getting the Artifact rocker and either a Graft or Agent. I would say the Artifact rocker, it does suprisingly well on jumps. If you are worried about it just being too soft, bump up to the Postermania. Still has the carbon V's for pop and tip stability but rocker unlike the Graft to make float (if needed) and press easier. More do-all than the cambered Graft. In a 150
