That's kinda hard. They're a different feel being one is full rocker and the other is combo. Other than that they are pretty well matched.

If you ride pipe a good amount though you should be looking at like the Coda or a K2 Lifelike or Protohype or something...

d15 In that case, if you're looking to do pipe don't get the Agent. It's too soft.

Have you looked at the Coda? It's more expensive but can do everything much better and is stiffer.

jonas007 So I think I narrowed it down to the Westmark, Rome Agent or Reverb Rocker. I do hit the pipe a lot, is the reverb rocker to soft for the half pipe?

jonas007 Have you ridden those? If so, how do they compare to the Whatever or Evil Twin?

Nivek Id go for a Reverb Rocker over the Agent.

jonas007 Not really looking for a noodle. The Riot is a really stiff board, good for going HUGE and for handling HIGH speed. I want something that can handle speed, but also playful enough to tool around on the mountain. I tried my buddies 2011 Joystick and that's kinda what I'm looking for. Seems like the Westmark fits the bill, I'll check out the Rome Agent as well. Thanks for the suggestions.

jyuen agents have always been very flexible.. i have the agent 07 and that thing is quite noodly but nothing compared to the artifact from 07..

if you want something that's super playful/noodly and strictly for jibs and butters and good for nothing else.. a few come to mind

rome artifact
bataleon aerobic
NS Evo (i think it's less noodly than the other 2)
Ride Kink (also less noodly i believe but still noodly)

damn i love using the word noodly

Smokehaus Yeah I was just making sure. My buddy used to have one and all I can remember was him folding that thing over on itself with ease.

He said he rides everything. The Agent used to be more park oriented. Now it's become more of an all around freestyle board.

I just got the 153 and it's pretty flexible.
