PRETTY DEASENT

It's a really great board. The board feels good switch and has a REAllY low spin rate, you can 270 on or off with ease. Its kinda a stiffer board than most freestyle but I guess that's why it has such great pop. The edge control on this this is pro, and it just feels natural under u. Over all pretty please with this board. BUT if you want best of best look up SKATE BANANA-http://www.dogfunk.com/snowboard/Lib-Technologies-Skate-Banana-BTX-Snowboard-Assorted-Bananas/LBT0095M.html

this is bogus man. learn something about snowboarding. the skate banana doesnt even compare to the agent. its a cheater board for "parky" kids who think that they are good at snowboarding because they can do a nose press on a box 2 feet high because the banana cant pop them onto anything higher....bottom line the agent is the best all around board on the market right now...period. the biggest jumps, deepest powder, biggest rails. if you are up to it the agent will be there letting you slay the whole time.

is the new model agent similar to the 09 models?
in sense of flex and weight of the board, i used to love the 07 agent model but after 07 model seems like they gotten much stiffer and heavier.

that really depends on your definition of MUCH. i wouldnt say they have really bumped up their weight, but definately their durability. especially the 2009-10 agents are pretty stacked with some new tech you can check on their site. the stiffness is perfect if you want to be someone that can slay anything from powder to rails. if all you are doing during the day is rails then dont get the agent. but if you want to hit and shralp some pow in the morning, hit an 80 ft kicker for lunch and eat you dinner hiking some rails you really cant beat the agent. (thats all i did last season and i have no complaints whatsoever.) the stiffness increas would only add more pop, stability and stompability for the big jumps...while not taking much away from rails...

i agree with hughmungous. a had an agent for two years and the board rips the entire mountain. rome advertises it as a board that makes the whole mountain your park and that couldnt be more true. i wouldn't go as far to say that if you like the skate banana you dont know anything about snowboarding. its just a completely different ride/feel. like hughmungous said the skate banana has very little pop. its also way stiffer and pretty heavy. because of this the skate banana is better bombing down ice or through chop, especially if your edges are sharp because of the magnetraction. i've never rode it in powder but id guess the skate banana would float more because of the reverse camber. like hughmungous said though the agent is super stable on big jumps, good in powder, and a beast on rails. on top of that it is super buttery and fun to jib around the whole mountain. it depends what you're going for.

@Hugh Mungous- ok so this guy is purely camber and that's all right. Kids these days want to have fun on the mountain and learn new and cooler tricks. The only way that they can progress and an exceptional rate, it with a rocker board. Yes it is kind of cheating but who cares? If you can do more things than you could do before and that makes you happy; why wouldn't you. The skate banana is a sick board that everyone can progress on and the rome agent is the best cambered board on the market for pop. Having said that, rocker in my opinion leads to better snowboard experience
