Hey guys, just bought 11.5 Burton Motos and some L/XL Union Contact bindings. I haven't gotten my snowboard. I was thinking about getting 157cm Rome Agent Rocker but I'm not sure if the board is too narrow or not for my boot size. I know the waist width of the board is 253mm but I have heard that is not a great measurement to go off of. Does anyone have a 157cm Rome Agent Rocker that can tell me the width around the inserts so I can see how much toe overhang I'll have? If the Agent is too narrow, I'll probably go with the Lib Tech TRS 157 Mid Wide. Thanks in advance.

well a size 11 would be fine on a regular board with a waist width of over 250mm but i'm not entirely sure about a size 11.5. i don't know how much of an impact an extra half size would have but you could always get the 158 mid wide. an extra cm won't be a problem. usually a size 12 boot is the size that would warrant a wide board. i'm a size 11 (i currently wear a size 10.5 though) and my board has a 250mm waist and i don't have any problems.

I don't know the width at the inserts of that board but I can tell you I have no problems with my 11.5 burton driver xs on a 159cm Gnu Billy Goat with a 250mm waist. My guess would be that if the rome has a similar sidecut radius to the Billy Goat you should be fine.

I have the 159 agent rocker and rode it for the first time a couple weeks ago. The WW is 2mm bigger, but you won't have any hang, and you'll be fine. I wear a size 11.5 Nike Kaiju (really big footprint boot).

Also rode a 159 agent rocker with 11.5 boots last year and agree youll have no issues. Should pair nicely with the contact pros as well.
