It's pretty stiff when it's new. It breaks in though. And it is surprisingly flexible even when it's new. It's stiff when you flex it suddenly, ollie, and softer when you flex it slowly, buttering. It also has it's flex spots. It is expensive though.

Both the Agent Rocker and Reverb Rocker are all mountain boards with the Agent being stiffer and the Reverb being more damp.

If you want a stiffer board for hard charging get the Agent. If a more playful board is what you want to ride, get the Reverb.

I would guess the Mod Rocker is stiffer because it has 2 rods in the core instead of 1.

Great, thanks. I'm leaning toward the Reverb. Will it hold an edge as well as the Agent on groomers? I'm thinking it will since they both have the QuickRip sidecut. I suspect the Reverb will have a little more chatter than the Agent in choppy snow, but I can live with that.

Still would like to hear some thoughts on the Jones Mtn Twin if anyone has ridden it.

Groomers would be no prob. The Reverb holds an edge as well as a full camber board but is easier to ride at slower speeds. I mostly ride trees and dork around on the edge of the groomed trail.

I have a 2012 reverb rocker, which I think is the same as the 2013 other than graphic. I really like it, it has worked great for just using the mountain as the park like you said.

Is the reverb really more damp than the agent? I thought it was e other way round with the agent being stiffer and damper?

Good stuff guys... if things go as planned I'll be picking up a Reverb Rocker 157 this week. I'll return with a review within the next couple of weeks.
