Question Hardbooter gone soft. Cobra X ?

Hi guys, 6'3 , 180 pounds, 11.5-12 size boots. Hardbooting I consider myself Advanced, laying it down the Blacks and soft boot I score a low intermediate. Carving some blues.

Looking for my next board for apocalypse style snow condition: Golf balls, too soft snow, ice and throw in some hardback with sticky snow here and there. When those condition show up I usually go for the woods (reads Quebec style tree runs....think hard/icy moguls in between trees). Currently riding a Head Holster-I camber 163W. Not really wide enough and bit too stiff for bump and not loose enought. Not enough float either.

Exchanged some PMs with Linvillegorge and reading Dreampow review seems like a NS Cobra X would keep me happy. Bit nervous about the board rocker/camber profile since I've been riding heavily cambered boards.

Today had apocalypse style condition and demos tents were up

Tried a Burton Custom Flying-V. Hated it ! Too loose and heel side carves were impossible for me. Poor Edge Hold for the way I ride.

Next Lib Tech Skunk Ape. WOW ! Absolutely loved it. Finally able to lay it down heel side without having the cups touching the snow, now that's wide

Alright still there ? Cool. My question the Never Summer Rocker/camber profile would feel like the Lib tech or the Burton or is it a whole other feeling ?
Curious about Hardbooting ?
