59. 155 Rome Agent with Rome Uniteds (08/09)

Stance: 22.5 with 18 negative 15 goofy

Boots: Vans Fargo boa’s size 10

Conditions: pure shit

One word: Limp

This board rode like a fucking graft. This board is not the agent I was so disappointed with it. Way too much torsional and lateral give. This is the first board in a long time I heard the death rattle from the chatter and got scared. I felt everything in this board. The pop was good, and the side cut was nice except when I hard carved it and then it was topple over time. The uniteds suck balls big time. Too soft, toecaps suck, flex is whacked out. There was no rigidity from the binding and it would just fold over. Felt like riding a Burton mission from 2000.


That review changed my mind. i herd the 07/08 was good ,im buying a new board this year, so i was thinking about this one but after i read this it changed my mind and i think im gettin the rome graft, it looks and i herd that its a sick park board.

Wow! The new 390's look extremely hot

PS: Weird that the new designs aren't updated yet on the website of Rome snowboards itself.

didn't want to start a new post for this but.....

im 5'10 160 currently ride a 158 burton blunt. from last season

i have an opportunity to get the 156 rome agent for a good price..

My question is is there really much a diff between them?
and will i really notice a diff in the size?

i wanted a smaller board because i like doing some park.. (not a park rat) mostly to enhance my natural feature tricks on the main mountain... should i go even smaller mayb?

If you have any kind of input i would greatly appreciate it?

I'm exactly the same stats as NYCBoarder and just bought a Rome Agent 156 for the same reasons (natural feature tricks). I'll be interested in hearing what others think about a shorter board. I might wait to ride it until I hear one way or another so I can trade it in. :P
