northface Looks like i've got alot of homework to do. Totally appreciate the ideas.

Dcp584 I would try on the Folsoms before you decide on them. It is the first year for Rome making boots, so they may not be exactly up to par with alot of the other companies. Personally when I tried them on I didn't like the fit on my feet but that is my feet not yours they could work great for you but I would recommend trying any boot on before you buy it.

lisevolution at 180 depending on whether you ride a lot of powder or not, I'd look at the 158 or 160 Agent.

Look at both, you'll see what I mean when comparing. I'm also not big on buying technology the first year it comes out which is the case with the Auto. All that stuff always has some kind of issue on the first production runs

I weigh a 180lbs. I'm going to check both of them out and see whats up.

Dcp584 The Agent is a pretty good crossover board to ride as well it performs well all over the mountain, from powder to park works good. I've ridden it in just about everything. But if you are looking for a board that is more geared towards freeride than freestyle i would shoot for the Anthem like lisevolutions said. I have both and they are both great boards. But if you go for the Anthem and your want to stick with Rome bindings I would reccomend the Targas over the 390s; and its vise versa if your leanign more towrds the Agent.
