I'm looking for a hard charging camber deck that can take on any conditions and won't get chattery in chunder or high speeds. I know that the HF is hybrid camber ( Camber - Rocker -Camber right?) and I'm wondering how this tech compares to conventional camber.
I bought a Hot Knife in the offseason so I haven't ridden it yet.
The flex rating seems a little soft for this to be a hard charging board, but I will defer to anyone who has actually ridden it.
There are many hard charging cambered decks out there. I'd check out something like the Salomon XLT or maybe Rossignol's new XV.
Do you need a true twin (Hot Knife), or will a directional twin or directional suit you better?
