Default Debating between Custom V-Rocker or NS SL-R

The new reverse camber technology intrigues me, i am deciding which of the two would be best? The SL-R is supposedly supposed to have the best of both worlds with camber and rocker does the Custom-V have the same technology or is it simply a rocker? What do you guys think of the two boards?

I have a 161 SL-R & love it, great pop, edge hold & it shifts. The build quality (3yr warranty) is top notch (1yr from Burton). I haven't ridden a Custom V-Rocker. Going by the Burton website the V-Rocker is a 3 stage rocker only.

I would recommend the SL-R. I am now looking for a 155 Evo for the park.

Burton's hybrid version of camber and rocker is called Flying V if that's what your looking for. Not sure how it rides or how it compares to the NS, but from these forums most people would probably suggest the SLR over anything from the B.

I have not demoed the Burton Custom but I have demoed the Burton Joystick and NS SLR.

Both ride very similar but the Joystick has a more loose surfy feel and the SLR feels like a skateboard. Both have good edge grip, pop and very fast transition from toe to heal side.

Being a freerider, I prefered the SLR but a lot of the park rats liked the Joystick. Next demo, I'm going to try the Burton Hero.

Thanks for the input guys. I think i may just go for the SL-R, too bad i missed the sale at Paragon for $350. Do you think the SL-R can be had at around $350 again or is it a long shot?
