I rarely ride powder. 95% of the riding I do, is groomed runs. If we get a lot of snow, I might get into a bit of powder. But it's groomers most of the time for me. I was reading the guide on here regarding positive camber vs reverse camber. It says that a positive camber board such as the Roundhouse CX, is more prone to hard take downs and catching an edge. I don't have a problem with that anymore. I have no problems riding either edge or quickly switching from edge to edge. The guide says that reverse camber boards such as the Roundhouse RX, are better for powder. Wish I had seen it earlier, but I still haven't purchased a board yet. I just want a lively ride with lots of control. Thoughts? RX or CX? Given my size, I think the 163cm in the CX would be a good choice. Thanks again!
