I've also been looking at both those boards and reading a ton about both. Basicaly the agent is going to be more park oriented than anything else but will still ride everything else ok. I demo'd it last season and when i took it in to powder it didn't do to well. Haven't tried the anthem, but looks like its more of a true "all mountain" board than the agent. More freeride oreinted than park if anything. Probaly going to be my next board.
