Size: 154

Camber Option: Fusion Camber. Small rocker in the tips with camber throughout so it’s camrocker.

Bindings: Rome Black Label

Stance: 21.5 Wide 15 Negative 12 Goofy

Boots: K2 Thraxis Size 10

My Weight: 200lbs

Resort: Copper Mountain

Conditions: Sunny bluebird skies, warming temps, hot pow, chop, chunder, slush, and perfect corduroy.

Flex: This has that predictable middle of the road flex with softer tips that are accentuated by the rocker zone. From there it stiffens up slightly through the mid section of the board. The torsional flex is highly abundant.

Stability: It’s about as stable as you would expect for a board of this caliber. You feel chatter in the tips at times and that does resonate back underfoot. In rutted out terrain this board can get bounced around so keep those knees bent.

Ollies: This board is super predictable with how it engages and rebounds. When loading up the camber profile it never feels like you’re putting any work into it, but that it’s just loaded up. It lets you snap off everything when you want to.

Pop On Jumps: It’s at home on jumps from small to large. You can be aggressive and it will pop off the lip if you snap off it or you can just let it throw you. I will say that it really does stand out as being better on more medium sized features.

Butterability: The rocker in the tips coupled with the softer flex gives this board a nice sweet spot outside the rods to push into for a butter. When you lock in you can feel the rod want to rebound and snap out, but it never does until you disengage your press. This makes this board highly butterable. The Double Kick tip also allows for you to get weird when spinning around.

Jibbing: This boards fully at home on a feature. Lock in that press and just let it hold till the end of the feature and then spring right out. Going sideways this board just flexes perfectly around the feature and feels secure.

Carving: The edge to edge roll on this board is fluid and feels like a board you’ve ridden forever. It locks in on edge and just holds on doing mellow swoopy carves. You can drive this board a bit more aggressively into a deeper carve but it’s not something you want to do all the time. There’s a nice amount of torsional flex to do some ankle steering when you’re feeling lazy and laid back. Overall it carves when you need it to but it’s more suited to just cruising doing set up carves and mellow turns.

Rider in Mind: All mountain freestyle guy.

Personal Thoughts: After 20 years you would hope Rome knows how to make a dialed in board and well The Agent is that. It’s still doing the job it set out back in the day. This is one of the most predictable riding decks from Rome and you can just hop on it and know it will handle everything you put in front of it. Sometimes not the best but definitely not the worst, it’s just a consistent deck.
