I just have a question regarding sizing. I ride mostly groomers, like to ride fast and do around 10% park. I am 5"9 and 180 lbs. I bought a 156, is dat too long for me?

yeah u should be fine i got a 156 and im 6 foot with 135-140 lbs on me, its more like an all mtn. board for me, u may even want to go for the 158 or 160 at that weight if your only doing 10% park.

Top sheet already peeling and coming apart =(

Other than that not a bad board.

if your mainly freeriding then dont get an agent, agent is more 60% park 40% freeride.

if you def want one, get the 156

Thanks for your advise.
Other than Rome Agent, which board is good for 70% freeride (I started snowboarding in last year and find myself crazy love it, and will spend more time to practice in park in next season, so probably 30% in park)

has anyone ridden both burton 09 custom vs agent? I got a 156cm custom and really liked it.
it handled everything great from what I can throw at it, which is not too difficult

saw some reviews about agent might over custom, and please chin in if you know differently
1. agent is lighter than custom
2. more pop from agent, easier to ollie, butter/press
3. looks cooler (awesome top sheet)
4. agent is much cheaper

custom over agent
1. high speed stability
