The hybrid camber and rocker is amazing try it out if you havent yet
So will the 45 degree carbon highlights improve the edge hold and nose/tail chatter the reviews have complained about?

If so will the board become stiffer (I see they still rate it as a 5 for flex in the new catalogue), therefore less fun to play around on and defeating the object of having this alternative to the camber?!
