Well Is Rocker So Much Better Than Camber?

Many people are sayin rocker's way better than camber..Im all-mountain guy, some people say camber's better for me. The reason im asking this is becuase at evogear they have 08/09 Neversummer Evo(not rocker camber) for 280 i want it. But im not sure people say it's not worth it if it's camber. My friend says rocker sucks dipshit. Im not sure. Which one is better in your opinion?(not asking for PERFECT answer as there is none, just opinions)

PS.. My friend's like it's not camber it's chamber.. who's right?

I personally loved reverse camber when I tried it for the first time with my Ultrafear FK, enough so to order a Never Summer SL-R and ditch my camber boards. I prefer the more forgiving surfier feel and find it to be more fun all around. It's a matter of preference I suppose but after the fun I've been having with 4 days so far this season, I don't see a reason to go back to camber myself.

Alright.. just another question. I have bout $580 excluding tax and everything just for solid price of a board, and bindings. I was first going for Union Force SL and 2008/2009 Neversummer Evo, but is this too much of money for the bindings?

IMO, you don't need the SL's for the Evo even if it's the cambered version...if you want to stay with Union, I'd stick to regular Forces or even the Contacts.

But with $580, psh, I'd get the 2010 Evo-R and look for a set of used Forces from last year.

Get these plus a brand new 2010 Evo-R and you're under your budget. Job done!

And in regard to best all-mtn...I could only attempt to answer if I tried a lot of boards which I haven't but I don't think there is an answer anyways. If there was, everyone and their mom would be riding it.
