i would deff contact rome bout the top sheet peeling, unless your riding on cheese gratters i dont think that is a normal thing with romes. my agent has like 20+ days on it with a perfect top sheet aside from it not being as shiny as it was out of the box lol

iv ridden custom 50% of all my time riding snowboard, i leard snowboariding on one..
the custom is my alltime fav board, i dont really like most ov burtons but the custom is just fantastic.

is abit directional and as quite a stiff flex for a freestyle(ish) board.
i feel more confident on high speed runs on my custom. for allmoutain riding the custom is king. if you want an allmoutain park board the agent is great, but i cant keep up with the custom for freeridng.

to be onist, if your doin mainly freeridng, why are you even considering the agent? the agent is for jibs and jumps all over the mountain.

that's exactely why I'm considering to get one! I was pretty confortable cruise around the mountains and started to have the desire to do some tricks while cruising the mountain.

I also thought my custom is great, fairly lite and stable at speeds. But felt a bit stiff to pop an ollie(I'm beginner in ollie) or press/butter at all.
I've tried doing boxes, small-large kickers couple times and totally loved it (when I didn't fall)
So, I was wondering if agent would make significant difference for me as a potential park funner in this department?!

from what i have heard (i have not ridden the custom, but i own an agent) i don't think there is that much of a difference between the two boards. neither the agent or custom is good for beginner park riding, but are perfect for some larger jumps/jibs etc. for most people in your situation an agent would be perfect, however since i see that you already have a custom, i think that you shouldn't buy a board that is really similar to it unless you are replacing your custom. What i'm saying is if you want to go into park a little more you may as well get a board like the capita stairmaster or one of the stiffer more PARK oriented boards. This way you have a board that excells at high speed and one that will excell at park. with the agent you are almost buying a newer version of the same board.

just my two cents
