Do these come with a tail connector strap, or do you have to purchase separate? If separate purchase is necessary, what connector strap do you recommend? I'll be using these on Voile Splitboard Skins. Regards,

Hunter

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is my second Rome Agent Rocker Wide. I am on the 156cm, and weight 160lbs. and am about 6 feet tall. I broke my previous in March 2014, not because the board was defective, the break was due to a blunt impact. I spent a day on a Slash ATV Hub before I came back to this board, see my review of the Slash if you are interested as to why I did not keep it. As of now, Never Summer (Revolver and Proto) and Rome are my favorite board manufacturers.

The Rome is great board for my riding style. I consider myself an all mountain rider, which is somewhat superfluous to snowboarding, but none-the-less I do not spend all day in the park, but I will generally take about 5 runs through the park per day. This board really does it all, it holds up on 15"+ powder (we had some monster days in Colorado this year and I had no issues, however I should note I was on an older model for most of the season) days, the camber really keeps the nose above the powder. I've been riding this newer model at a-basin in more spring like conditions. The board does not get too chattery when taking aggressive runs through choppy snow, it has some chatter, which can compromise the rider, you just have to absorb it and stay low. Due to chatter, I really feel like this board is not as powerful as Rome advertises on their website. Try the Slash ATV Hub if you want a board that has very little chatter. The agent performs when riding switch, feels the same as if I am riding in my regular stance.

When riding park the board performs great. The board has nice pop, feels buttery when your sliding a box/rail and is buttery on the groomers as well. On booters the board performs well. In conclusion, I really have no quarrels with this board, it can get chattery, but if the board did not have this chatter, it would likely be less playful for freestyle riding.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I rode the 156cm for about 17,000 vertical at keystone on a 6" mini powder day. Overall, this board felt fairly aggressive, as Kevin titled his review, it's a charger. It holds onto turns well, and stays very stable when pointing through mogully/choppy terrain. That was the quality I enjoyed most about this board, you can charge through choppy terrain with very little chatter. The board didn't perform very well in the small amount of powder, however, I believe it was due to size of the board being to small for me. I think a 158cm or 160cm would work better for my size. Riding switch the board performed well due to its directional twin construction. I took it through the park for a tester on the rails, it doesn't really feel like a park board but none the less it worked. I didn't get to send it off any booter's because they had em all closed off, but I would imagine it would perform better on jumps, as opposed to a jib board.

I sent the board back to backcountry because the size did not work, and they did not have the next size up in stock (158cm), so I went with a different board (Rome Agent Rocker Wide). I'll likely buy another one next season to add to my quiver, though I want to try one of the Jones boards out as well.
