2017 Rome Agent Rocker Snowboard Review
Well done! Very informative and helpful review. Thank you.
Why in the world did Rome make a rocker version and label it Rome Agent also? It is a totally different board. It is easy for somebody to make a mistake and get that when they wanted a board like the old Rome Agent.
Hey Board Insiders, this is a seriously good review. I’ve been riding two seasons on rented Burton Progression gear and have decided to purchase for the coming winter. I’m in SoCal and love bombing the blues and the occasional blacks, blasting side hits and tree runs. I need more edge hold, stiffness, and I’m looking for something with good pop. I’ve looked at probably every board review including yours (the Tylers are dope and so different lol. Mathis is so great at describing board feel and characteristics and I really trust his feedback) and I’ve been looking mostly at the Assassin, Villain, Jibsaw, and Warlock. I’m ashamed to say that I wasn’t even aware that Bear had a terrain park (or what one really was) when I first started smh but I’ve fallen in love with snowboarding and this season I’m going to hit it regularly. I need something that will allow me to progress there as well as the rest of the mountain. I hadn’t even looked at Rome except for the Mod and that’s too aggressive for me. I want to move away from the flat and reverse camber of my wishy washy rental boards, and I wanna ease in to camber with a hybrid shape. Then I saw this review in my feed so I watched it and this has me torn between the Agent Rocker and Assassin. I’m 185-195 (“depending on how many burritos I ate that day”). I want to hit jibs but more jumps and still carve well. What do you recommend? 155 too short? Any other boards I should consider? Looks like I can get both for about the same price (through your links of course!). Help me please Mathis and BI!
The setting looks just like the hotel from The Shinning.
Whats the song at the start? And how does this board compare to the Reverb Rocker? I just ordered one
Do you guys prefer the Agent Rocker to the mod Rocker and the Gang Plank?
I ride jumps rails and jobs all about equally would you guys recommend the agent Rocker or the gang plank
How was the edge hold?
@boardInsiders would you guys say the 2015-2016 agent rocker review would be about the same as this one? I have the 2016 agent rocker (haven’t taken it out yet) and I am a beginner-intermediate rider. It was a steal… Just curious what your thoughts are about last years board.
