I just got out to test my 07-08 Rome Agent and i have ridden it for around 4 days. The board i must say feels a little stiff, but this board is really what the website describes it as. It is a board that can do the park as well as the rest of the mountain, although there is no powder here in california. I am pretty new to snowboarding but i am a quick learner and this is my first board so don't take this review so seriously. The board is stiff enough so that I have confidence going fast and not worrying about getting some ugly chatter. I am able to take this down the double blacks without too much trouble and in the park this board feels really good of jumps and boxes. I can actually ollie quite high so as to get over some small slow signs. The base on this board seems to need to be waxed more than normal or is it just me. After three days on the slopes on a new wax job, my base looked extremely dry so i was just wondering if anyone else has had this. Also one con that i can point out is that this board dings really easy. After the first day of riding I noticed the top sheet peeling in tiny areas, and after 3 days of boarding i noticed a pretty good sized cut into my sidewall, and so i took a razor blade and took off the bur and sanded it down a little so it doesn't get ne bigger. Overall, this board is really fun, tons of pop off of jumps, great a high speeds, and really should be considered as a freestyle board that and also run the rest of the mountain. Comments appreciated! Also i was thinking about getting another board for the next season and would like some advice, i had some thoughts about the 148 WWW, but i think i may have toe drag on that since it is so narrow. I also was looking into the k2 darkstar, the capita stairmaster, and the gnu freestyle boards. The cheaper the better!
