Definitely not mellow.
Rome designed the Agent Rocker Snowboard to be more than a run-of-the-mill all-mountain board. The Agent Rocker is a stiff, aggressive board, made for the rider with skills. This is not a forgiving beginner deck, it's specifically designed for hauling ass, stomping big airs and trenching long powerful turns.
The folks at Rome laid up the Agent Rocker with three zones of low-density wood with extended zones of poplar. This gives the Agent Rocker a stiff, powerful feel. They then added carbon Hot Rods at the tip and tail to stiffen them up a bit while leaving the soft flex between the bindings for added pop with a playful feel. Rome also added two additional mid-board contact points between off-set sidecuts for added high-speed edge control or to make the board feel shorter and more playful at low speed.
The Agent Rocker uses Rome's all-mountain MtnPop hybrid rocker. The board is rockered underfoot and between the bindings, while the nose and tail are positive camber for added pop, response, and edge control. The base is Rome's high-end Sinterspeed base, which absorbs large amounts of wax for several days of high-speed riding. The StraightTriax 30 laminate with 30 degree fibers are mellow enough to quickly adjust to changes in terrain and poppy enough to help boost you for bigger airs.

Hi, I'm 6'3" <190 pound int-adv rider with us11 boot size. I seeking of freestyle board which could be used mostly in a park (jumps, spins, minimum jib) but also could be suitable for rare freeride/pow rides. I'd prefer rockered/hybrid shapes. Will be Agent Rocker 157 enough for me or I need longer board? I've tried 159cm board with 254mm width and it was quite comfortable for me.
You can typically go a little shorter on Rockered boards without sacrificing control and stability. So a 157cm should work great for you on this board.
Best Board. Period.

The Agent Rocker is seriously the best all-mountain board I have ridden. MtnPop is the perfect combo of stability, float, and pop. It's only a little bit setback, so its still great in the park. Even on the icy days, you can feel the Quick Rip sidecut dig in, making it very stable. It was crazy how much I noticed the HotRods too. Sometimes you lose some ollie power with reverse camber boards, but the HotRods make up for it and then some.
