Default Rome Agent or K2 Believer

Bought the Rome Agent 158, thanks for the input

Local shop has a K2 Believer, 159, at 50% off. After taxes it comes to about $242. I can get a Rome Agent 158 for pretty much the same price. What would everyone do? I need to make a decision by the time the shop opens tomorrow at 10am.

A plus to buying the K2 Believer from the local shop is I would get free waxings for life. I already have waxing for life at another local shop, but this one is more convenient for where I live. I can get the Rome Agent for a little less than the K2. This is a hella tough decision as both are good boards.

Personally i'd get the Agent, because i've heard nothing but great things bout Rome (and they're a great company and im getting one this season ) and nothing particularly great about K2. Also keeping in mind that Rome is a snowboard brand and K2 is a ski brand that makes snowboards. Anyway the choice is up to you either way.

I actually miscalculated the price on the Agent. It's a bit more than the K2 Believer. The Believer got great reviews from Future Snowboarding, is that something to actually believe? The Agent didn't make the list, but the Mod did. Customer service is something to be concerned about, where I think K2 won't be very good and Rome will be at least decent (they took a week to reply to my email about the correct size of the Agent).

Rome Agent = $267 shipped
K2 Believer = $242 with tax

..... damn, still a tough decision. I budgeted $3000 for windows for my house, but it is coming out to $2650, so I have $350 to spend on the board. Should I just eat that extra $25 and get the Agent? Sounds like everyone likes that board better.

Another tick on Rome's side. Rome's warranty is 2 years versus 1 year for K2. Someone on K2's site posted they broke two Believer boards within a week and they think the quality is cheap because it's made in China.

I bought the Rome board. It will be here next week Friday, hopefully in 100% condition so I can take it with my on my trip to Colorado 4/12-4/19. Thanks for the input everyone, it was greatly appreciated and help hammer home my decision.

Waiting till next week Friday for it to get to my door is going to kill me. Waiting till next season to get it on the hill is going to be even worse.
