THE SELL: A twin-shaped freestyle powerhouse with more energy than a pogo stick. THE TEST: Reverse-camber boards are quick and responsive, but they're also generally devoid of pop off the tip and tail.  Until now. By inserting thin carbon tubes along the length of its thinned-out core, Rome upped this board's longitudinal and torsional kick. In fact, every tester sounded off on the Mod Rocker's ease ollieing. And the Kevlar impact plates beneath the bindings absorbed compression and increased response. All that snap didn't trip us up, though, thanks to its less catchy rockered tip and tail. THE VERDICT: An energetic freestyle board with no vertical limit.

Responsiveness: 4.5
Versatility: 3
