Default I ride a Rome Agent, should I get a Never Summer SL?

Hi guys,

I have a '08 Rome Agent (regular camber) and I was wondering if it's worth it for me to cough up $500 for a Never Summer SL. I ride everywhere on the mountain so I love my Agent because it's a do-everything stick, and I also know that the Agent has a great reputation. I'm very happy with my stick right now and I believe it's the best board I've ever ridden on.

My question is, what incentives are there for me to buy an SL? I know that the SL has a hybrid rocker and I've never ridden on anything but a camber board. What do you guys think?

And if it helps, I mostly ride (99% of the time) SoCal's Big Bear/Snow Summit resorts and they're mostly hard packed/groomers.

Thanks for the feedback!

I realize that there are older posts regarding the Agent vs SL, but if there's anyone that can further explain the comparison I'd very much appreciate it. My biggest question is will the SL further increase my riding skills and teach me things that my Agent can't, or will it just be almost the same as my Agent and I shouldn't waste my money.

Money is tight, but I'm willing to spend if it's necessary.

That board will do none of those things for you. Don't waste your money if you like the board you have. Save your money and go on a trip to a real mountain like Mammoth or Squaw. You want to get better? Ride with guys that are better than you.
