Default Drop agent rocker for coda? (BA please)

After riding an 09 NS Evo 158 as my all mountain board last year I decided I want something stiffer. I don't jib much, like a mid flexing deck that is more on stable side. Evo came up just a little short there for me.

I have a 2011 agent rocker 159 still in the plastic that is going to replace the Evo but I rode an arbor coda 157 and loved it. Surprised by how stable it was, rode fast as hell but was still playful with the continuous rocker. I was even hesitant to jump on the 157 at 6'2" 180lbs but had no complaints in the few runs.

Now I am wondering if I want to sell the agent rocker before i ride it and get the coda, would prefer to ride the agent but can obviously get more $ for it if I don't ride.

I know I'm not BA, but if it helps any we dropped Rome for 2011 partly cause we had too many of them come back for warranty...

I've ridden the Coda and it was up there with the top all mountain boards I've ever ridden.

I did hear someone on another forum mention they had issues on 3 of 5 Rome products purchased this year. Also, my 390 Bosses paint started flaking day 1. Cosmetic issue but still kind of lame

Well their bindings are still solid and I support them 100%. But yeah, if you're gonna be jibbing at all or have a habit of bonking stuff or landing backseat then the durability may be an issue.
