Never rode a C-R-C b4 but was thinking the exact same thing; say in powder, full rocker might give a +5 cm bonus (i.e. 155 rocker rides like a 160 camber in powder), R-C-R a +2 bonus and C2BTX should be somewhere in between.

I was still thinking whether I can make a 157 C2BTX work for me. But you are right, powder is amazing but the terrain is a bit flat. So glad I made the decision to post in the forum, will look at the 160 range instead. Thanks
