Unhappy Camber vs. Rocker?

Ok maybe a dated question but i am new to this forum so try to respond anyway. Until I get picked up by a board company i am limited to one stick. I bought the K2 believer the first year it was out and that was my one every 5 year board. Things change with this movement of revers camber thou, so I just want to know what is the real deal? Is it that much better? If it is i will gladly sell my TV to get one.

Why settle for one or the other when you can have the best of both worlds. Do yourself a favor and check out neversummer.com

The man speaks! He's right. Check out the Never Summer Rocker/Camber Vario grip line.. Evo-R, Circuit-R, SL-R etc they are all badass!! All those that haven't rode one really need to check one out! I remember my first day on the Evo-R last year like it was my first stink finger!

After reading those check out the reviews and stuff you'll get a better idea.

If i get a revers camber it will be the k2's zero. I will ride i never summer if someone buys it for me.

no i have not and demo days are later in the season. The last three boards i have owned all came from k2 and the flat no camber seems to be a good transition for me since i have been on a regular camber forever. It is hard to decide. I got the believer two seasons ago and only really rode it hard last season, so it is still fresh. Now all these little shin bitters are going to be spinning circles around me on their skate banana's. O well looks like i'm selling the flat screen.

ahhh i see i went to the site .... i was basing my info off of what a buddy said last year. So now i'm back to square one. I still believe if i'm not wrong that i should go with a no camber first to transition.
