Alright, so here we are in 2013... and I've ridden this board every season since December of 2006. It's seen literally 15-20 ski resorts, several hundred runs, and multiple thousands of miles put on it, but it has been the best board I've ever owned. For the past four or five years, I've been browsing around looking at the newer boards coming out thinking about maybe purchasing one.. but then I bust out my 06/07 Rome agent 148 and kick ass all over the mountain... every year. It's like they designed it for my exact weight and body type. Ultra buttery and smooth, never fails. I seriously would drop another $500 on this board no problem if Rome were to re-release this older model again haha. Those of you who also have this board know what I'm saying.
