Reverse Camber Twin Bottomless Pow

Has anyone taken a Reverse Camber True Twin into bottomless pow? If so, how did it perform?

I'm contemplating ditching the freeride and powder boards completely... and wondering if a rocker board is a real quiver killer.

i couldn't tell you about bottomless pow but I took my revolver through 2 feet of fresh yesterday and it handled like a dream.
My revolver is definitely a quiver killer for me

For bottomless, nothing will beat a reverse cambered tapered directional.

Do you need shift your weight to your back leg to prevent nose dives?

With NS boards it all really comes down to how fast your going, because they can chop through if they have the momentum since the tip is so stiff.

As with all boards you will have to lean back sometimes, but because of the design you get more nose lift for the same amount of backwards lean on a traditional board...so you float better with the same amount, or can float equivilently with less lean...

Thats not to say obviously that nose diving isnt possible, i've done it a few times on my SL-R but they were always my fault.

I have a Rome Anthem SS that they added some rocker to. I could be wrong but I think it's a reverse cambered tapered directional. It's more of a quick transition to the contact point on the back foot and a very gradual transition to the contact point far above the front binding. My board seems to really take a lot less leaning back to float through pow. It just does everything naturally and you can ride it practically no different than you would any other hill. Can someone let me know what kind of camber this is technically?

My NS revolver kills it in the pow ( last time i did 40 sm of fresh snow in the trees) of course u have to keep a little speed, but sooo much better than my option booter, also the base is slippery like a wet whore, it glides on the pow fast and easy! looove the revy and it is a true twin - i.e. switch is effortless

the anthem ss is a standard non-tapered directional with rockered tips

Reverse camber is better for pow. Burton fish is revers camber and fish tailed and is strictly a pow board.
