Default Rome Rocker Profile

Do all the Rome boards with mtn pop rocker/camber ride the same? I am think of the Agent Rocker vs. Reverb Rocker. I've ridden the graft rocker, which the reverb is based off of and I was wondering if the agent and reverb rockers would ride as loose.

Was the 2012 Agent as soft as past years? It seems like alot of people have different opinions on these boards- some say they are too soft or loose and other people say they have good edge old on all terrain and are mid stiff.

Hey Charlie,

It's hard to say whether or not the Agent Rocker vs Reverb Rocker will ride the same, because they are constructed differently. The biggest difference is that the Agent Rocker is an almost-twin and it's a bit stiffer than the Reverb Rocker. This alone will affect the board feel and handling. The camber profile is exactly the same, however.

The Reverb Rocker is definitely designed to be an upgrade from the Graft Rocker and should feel very similar in terms of flex.

We've kept the flex ratings the same on the Agent for the past few years, but have added HotRods. This will give a more snappy feel in the nose and tail for sure.

The Agent Rocker has always been considered a great all-around deck that is a little stiffer than mid flex and can really tackle any sort of terrain. You'll probably get different flex opinions from people of varying heights and weights, as well as those who ride different sizes. For example, a 155 will feel stiff to someone who weights 120 lbs, and probably softer to someone who weighs 170 lbs.

Hope that helps out a bit. Any other questions, you know where to find us.

Shred on

Depends on what you're riding too. Powder or groomers? Booters or butters?

This caught my eye, how does the Garage fit into all this?
Rome Garage Rocker Snowboard - BRAND NEW!

I might sell my truck, & snatch it up.
Do you think that is a pretty good deal?
