Advanages of a Camber board for Jibs?

Hello,

With all the discussion on reverse cambers boards and it's benefits in the park, are there any advantages of a camber board for jibbing and rails?

Thanks.

I guess to have a slight camber between the bindings and rocker at the tips would be the best of both worlds.....almost like the burton's park rocker technology

Thanks.
some riders say reversed cambered boards that have the reverse camber in the middle are harder to "lock onto rails" and some riders prefer the snappiness of a cambered board, but its really a matter of personal preference.

Supposedly it helps "roll" into presses. (Instead of fighting the camber)

i think this was the worst reverse camber option that I have ridden. It leaves you with the most minimal contact points of any board. They are very squirrely and washy. And to me, for jibbing, thats exactly what you don't want. More practically, you want reverse camber between the feet and zero camber from the inserts to the nose/tail. This gives you almost 100% contact points on the snow and on jibs too. You can really lock into things like nose and tail slides, boardslides, etc
