But if you can shed some light on it and disprove some of my preconceptions that'd be great.
The "shifty" feeling is something you'll get with just about any rocker/camber board. The rocker between the bindings will make you want to pivot unless you're engaging the camber in the nose or in a carve/turn.

I personally think the "advanced/expert" rating stuff is just marketing. As an intermediate rider will you be able to do reliably go down the hill? Yes. Will you fully appreciate some of the tech in an "advanced/expert" board? Probably not till you get more experience on it and ride other boards to compare.
