I always hate posting questions when i feel they may have already been answered. I've read a lot of the posts here, searched through most of the forum, and found a lot of helpful information. But, I still have a few questions and I think you all would be most helpful in getting me info I need. So here we go.
Basically I've been riding for about 4-5 seasons. I'd say my skill level is above intermediate, but maybe not 100% advanced yet. I'm 24, 5'10'' and anywhere from 175-180 lbs. I've had the same board since i started, an 04ish Ride Nation and I'm way overdue for an upgrade. I was lookin at a Rome Agent with Rome 390's. I've tried to find as many reviews and info I could on this. What I'm trying to accomplish with this setup is an all-mountain board. I mainly do speed runs and cruise with friends but, I'd like to start hittin the park more though and just hittin whatever I see during a normal run. So I wanted something light, has great control, looks good, and able to take me anywhere. Will the Agent get me that? Or should I be lookin at something else? Rome Design? I'm only talkin rome because some of my friends ride rome and they love them but I'm open to suggestion. Would I get better control with a shorter board? Maybe a 156 or 154?? Mainly ridin groomed packed powder at 7springs in PA.
Also, anyone wear a 686 Smarty Woodland (in white) jacket? Was thinkin about pickin that up but I wanted to see what others thought.
Sorry for the book I just wrote, any help would be greatly appreciated, and if you're ever in PA at 7 springs. I'll buy you a beer at the Foggie Goggle.
