I own both a Rome Anthem and a Rome Design. They are so good I've seen no reason to buy anything besides Rome so far. I also own the Arsenal bindings and they are phenomenal as well. I recommend Rome highly.

I personally own a Anthem, Agent, and a Graft. All from past years. the Anthem is like 5 or 6 years old, the Agent is 3 years old and the Graft is last seasons.

The Anthem is a great freeride type of board that can still hold its own in pipe and on jumps. Awesome edge hold and good pop. It's not really oriented towards jibbing.

The Agent is a phenomenal board made to push your progression. I pushed my riding so much further the year I got this board it was crazy. It has great edge hold and pop, with its alomost twin shape it makes rideing switch easy but still give a little bit of the benefit of a directional board. Great in the park, you can jib with it and it still floats in powder.

The Graft I have really limited expeirience on this board since I picked it up at the end of last season so I have only rode it twice. But from my limited use it is the easiest thing I have ever had to ride switch on, but that might be becasue it is the first true twin board I have ever had. It does seem to be slower than anything I have ever riden before and that is personally a little aggrivating for me because I like to go fast. But like I said I have limited use of it so I haven't really gotten to push it on this board. Sedition actually has a great review of this particular board. If you would like to check it out it has a lot of good info.

Funny you would ask about the Flag, I was just about to chime in with my personal take on this board. I ride a Flag 168 from 07 and it is super fast, poppy and stable. The edge hold is great even on when riding here on the ice coast. I am much more of a free-rider at this point in my life and I honestly have not taken this thing into the park at all except for a couple of 50-50's and board slides on some boxes. It is a bit stiff but not nearly as stiff as the Ride Yukon I used to own. That said the flex is just right to pop an ollie off a roller. It is not very good switch as it is directional but that's really the only negative I can think of in my year riding it.

It is an all mountain killer that is definitely the wide version of the Anthem. Helped me get very comfortable at speed on steeper terrain than I was ever comfortable riding before.

thanks lisevolution, i'm currently looking for a new allmountain board that is flexible, easy to turn and forgiveable as well. beside
the flag i'm thinking about a ride antic 162w, never summer sl-r 164 and the arbor element (not sure if 161 or 165.
i'm 6'2 and 190-200lbs, boot size 10.5. what would you recommend?
may i ask about your size because i was looking for the flag 163. would that be right for me?

agent 160 or 162

I ride a Flag 163. My only complaints is that it is too stiff to do a lot of jibbing and mine has some nice chips where the top sheet peeled a bit. It is very stable at high speeds and is very responsive. The agent is more in your ballpark, or the slash if you decide to get a wide.
