Default rockers and jumping

anyone riding a rocker and doing some big kickers with them? im afraid that the tail will be too soft, and i dont have experience with jumping any rockers..like t rice doesnt even use his btx for jumping and i know im no where near his ability but jumping with soft tails isnt as fun...

i was looking at a few different boards that i think will have enough pop too jump and land nice like the postermania, the lib tech t rice, a bataleon evil twin, or the burton hero..

so your opinion on jumping with rockers over like 20 footers and bigger please.

also looking at a scaremaster or stairmaster extreme if i decide against rocker. ive never rode an extruded base? should i just spend the 100 for the sintered?

Dunno about BTX and Capita, but my Never Summer SL-R (probably similar to the T. Rice) is great on jumps (20 ft. is probably the biggest I've hit with it so far). Lots of pop and stable on landings. If I spring off the tail, I can get lots of air off of smallish bumps and rollers on trails too. If you're worried about the board being too soft, just get one of the stiffer rocker boards.
