Is this profile similar to Burton's Flying-V? When looking at my Process Flying-V laying flat, the tips are raised up. The overall shape is rocker, with a little camber kink under the bindings. I've been curious to try Never Summer given all the positive reviews, but I'm not 100% sold on this profile on my Burton. Hopefully I'll get to try NS at the East Coast meetup this year and find out for myself. If NS and C2BTX are different, how so?
