which would you go with of these boards???

well awhile back i posted a poll for my all mtn/freestyle board where my main concern was speed stability and jump landings, but also still playful...i narrowed down my choices more and changed some too, and this is what im down to or added since one just came out.

1. Ride DH 2.5 (has the new hybrid prorize tech)
2. Rome Agent
3. Rome Agent Rocker



this is all thats sticking with me right now to choose from, still got a month til snow here, but if i go with the Ride DH 2.5 i gotta order it first of nov. cause there only making 250!

You like the 2.5 better than the 2.4? I think the 2.5 doesn't even look like a Ride board. Reminds of Capita graphics.

I reckon sticking with a regular camber Agent is good since you wanted stability and stomp landings but you seemed stoked on the DH2.4/5. So I guess buy what you're stoked on.

The Agent is probably going to be the most stable. But the Ride would probably be more playful. For me, it would depend if you already have a board that fills one of those roles. If you have a solid cambered board for bombing down runs, I'd get the DH 2.5. If you have a rocker or hybrid already, I'd get the Agent. If you have neither, I guess it's a matter of priority. For what it's worth, I like the graphics on the 2.5 the best.

The DH 2.5 will probably be more stable than your old board. But not as stable as the Agent. Where are you riding? Unless you're riding really steep and fast, it may not make that much difference.
