Default Reverse Camber, Yay or Nay?

My board just got stolen (K2 Darkstar 150) and I'm looking to a new board ASAP to finish out the season. I'm considering a reverse camber board. What exactly are the pros and cons of a reverse camber board? I enjoy riding the park, but I don't want something that's not gonna be all that good hit some jumps or crusin the mountain. I've hear the reverse camber boards aren't so hot off jumps. Opinions are appreciated. Thanks.

Sorry title should be Camber...my bad.

bataleon boards are incredible

there is a few evil twin snowboards at actionvillage for $337, which is 25% off. Bataleon uses TBT which are raised edges around tip and tail. they are really sick. I have one and its faster than hell

some reverse cambers are lacking pop off of jumps, that is probably the biggest con to getting a rocker. other then that they are nice..

The Riot would be even faster, since it has a sintered base.

I love my Never summer board. I really want a Bataleon Riot to try out but I can't find one in my size anywhere.

Well, first ill state the obvious..TBT is not Rocker they are two totally different things. Second not ALL reverse camber boards have problems on jumps, as others have stated the NS RC boards(Evo-R/SL-R and their wide versions) all have a good amount of pop to them and dont take much if any loading..theres tons of reviews for them especially in the review stickies...take a gander.
A lot of people like Bataleon and TBT as well, but i have no real first hand knowledge of how that rides.

If you want rocker go with a never summer since it seems like they really have the rocker thing done right. If you want a straight up awesome ride get a bataleon . Just my opinion though, i really just can't get over how much fun tbt makes things.

The reason I brought up bataleon is because he said he wanted a fun park board. And bataleon makes boards which are fun in the park, I dont have first hand experience with RC but TBT rocks my world
