So I guess there are 5 categories. Regular camber, reverse camber, rocker camber, camber rocker, and zero camber. That makes it a lot easier thanks. So the only real difference is what other techs the companies put into their specific boards. I have been enlightened.

Next year, It'd be great to see you pick park boards for example, and do a shootout of each brand's alternative to traditional camber. Looks like K2 is going flat next year, with various rocker widths at the tip and tail. It would probably be hard to get all those boards, but it would be cool nonetheless.

Despite the fact that a lot of snowboarding is preference, there's still a superior design in the mix somewhere. I'm happy with R.C. and TBT so far.

one thing that has come to mind with being able to demo a bunch of RC boards is that you really need to try it for yourself. There's just so many variations of this tech that they all ride quite different.

I took the plunge and picked up a custom v-rocker. Click the link in my sig to read my ongoing review.

Now I will say it takes a lot of adjustment to go from a camber to a reverse/mix camber board. The pop is still (my old custom vs v-rocker custom) there but its just different. Its really hard to explain.

I am a Vermonter living in California showing the locals how to keep it real!

Burton has that as well now.
