ive heard one person say the agent was too soft on here for all mt. the person was the worst typer in the world and constantly compared the burton custom to the rome anthem aka the only person i saw say this was a complete idiot.

the rome agent is a sick all around board, it will not give you any trouble anywhere. its pretty darn good at whatever it wants to be.

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.

i've ridden the slash (the wide agent) and I'm with jmacphee9, it could handle anything. I could bomb, butter, kit kickers, table tops.

I didn't like the directional shape. I've been on a true twin for too many days so I'm probably going for the Riff when I upgrade.
