As Incogneato said you cant talk about RC and TBT as being similar, they are two entirely different things attempting to fix two entirely different problems.
And not all Rocker designs are created equal either. I know that the K2 rocker and some others have been noted to have difficulty landing, but thats only one implementation. I think most people would agree that the RC Tech that Never Summer and now Lib Tech in 2010 are using is the best of both worlds. Banana's were the first attempt at it, and they proved theres benefit in the technology..NS's RC Tech and Lib's new C2 technology improve on it. Im hearing pretty good things about some of Burtons rocker's for '10 too..
One of the nice things about RC/C2 boards is that they ride more like a standard cambered snowboard..except when you have that "Oh shit, edge catch" moment and it doesnt happen and you spin out of it you can breath a sigh of relief not pain...Anybody thats riden a Banana or TBT board will tell you it doesnt ride like a regular snowboard, which isnt necessarily a bad thing depending on your style.
