perhaps its just me.....

my solomon is a 158, my Coda is a 161.
lately I have been riding an Arbor Coda (coming from a solomon official camber). The coda has a parabolic rocker. I had all the typical preconceived notions. I assumed it would be Pivoty when flat basing on those long groomers. I was preparing to have my back end wash out when I landed backseat. I expected to lose stability when carving at high speeds.
It felt as stable when flat basing as my camber - I couldn't tell a difference. I FLEW down runs and it held an edge like a goddam wolverine. and not once did I wash out when landing backseat.
I realize that every board is different, and I guess that's my point. Lumping boards into + or - camber is an over simplification. There are SOOOO many variables to consider, from rider ability/preference, riding conditions, edge alterations (magne traction/vario/GripTech etc)...
