rome agent park only
i keep reading more and more about this board and the more it just seems to be a straight park board. if im only gonna be spending like 40 to 45 precent of my time in the park is this board okay for that or should i go with more of an all mountain board i was looking at the k2 darkstar but idk tell me what you think?

I use my agent as an all mountain board and it works great.

mitchellglav 08-21-2008 12:47 PM

do you recommend this board then? im somewhat of a beginner and i can get down the mountain and hit smaller jumps and boxes but i am planning to go out a lot this year so i guess is it a hard board to ride or anything like that give me info on it and what you think?

Personally I love the board, I took it out to Timberline last spring and had a blast with it. The board performs well all over the mountain and its very forgiving. I only have a few seasons of riding and after buying this board I truly noticed how much my previous board was holding me back. Do I recommend the board, hell yeah. Now there is a bit of an issue here.

Some people claim that the new agent was made softer and more flexible than the one from the previous year(the one I have). Rome claims they did not make any changes to the board, but BA rode it and he claims the board feels much like the Graft which is much softer than the original agent.

Not sure what to tell you there.... I guess try looking for an 08 one instead of the 09, plus you save $$$ since it's cheaper.

i can get the 08 right now if i want since its not twin directional does that hold you back at all is it like a hassle or does it not really matter? what bindings do you use

Simply^Ride 08-21-2008 01:34 PM

hold you back in what way, I am not sure I get your question?

I have 390's on my board and I love them, BA seems to be big in K2's not sure what model. Ride are also good bindings.
