Rome Mod Rocker or Agent Rocker??
First post, have been reading these forums for a while though and have just upped the ante on hiring gear and decided to buy all my own..I've seen the snow twice in my life and both times I was snowboarding and loved it, all up 11 days on the snow.
* My skill level would be intermediate - I can do blue runs reasonably well but not fully confident, have ventured into some of the most basic parks in OZ resorts and rode through berms and popped some small jumps. Have done Whistler too and loved the snow over there..
* I'm 5,9" and weigh about 168-170 ( or 76-78 kg's)
I've read heaps of reviews an opinions here and decided on a 2012 Rome Agent Rocker 55. My question is whether a Rome Mod Rocker would be a better board for my ability? Seems the Mod has more pop and might be more easier to progress on with the cutaway nose e.t.c
Oz conditions are a general mix but hard packed rather than the soft powder I rode on over in Whistler, the groomers in OZ get really choppy quickly. I picked the Agent because I thought it would be a little stiffer and better in the harder stuff than the Mod.
I'm a novice with this stuff, can anyone in the know give me an idea?? I'd like to be able to return the board before using if the Mod is better, I've just booked a trip to NZ next season so would be awesome to get my setup sorted.
FYI I read the post rules and rocker FAQ's e.t.c just can't decide between these two..
Any help appreciated!
