Many factors affect float in pow, camber profile is only one of them and it is impossible to make such a generalization.

Proto definitely not too flexy - dreampow rides it on Honshu in much bigger mountains and challenging terrain than we have in Hokkaido.

Heritage is not a true twin and, like the the T. Rice, much too stiff and plankish for Hokkaido riding.
