Default Ideal board for jumps?

I'm not looking at buying anything just curious what makes a good board for jumps so I can help people in the future.
My biggest questions right now are:
What kind of camber is the best?
Where does stiffness help?
Finally, Are sharper edges better?

Right now I'm riding a rome artifact and I do about 80% rails
I do know how to 360 off jumps but I feel like this isn't the best board to take off the big kickers.

If I was looking at strickly jumps I would be going Bataleon first. Probably an Evil twin. Camber for the pop and stability with TBT to keep from catching.

Something Bataleon. Or zero camber. Or camrock. Mid stiff or just past mid stiff.

agreed. bataleon makes great jump boards. you definitely want to have camber though. i liked the DC PBJ for jumps until they put BDR on it...

I think TBT is awuful for jumps...it rides so loose. For bigger jumps you def want something more responsive with a good amount of edge.

how important is the sharpness of the edge to jump?

I'm riding a park tuned board with high edges. I have yet to catch an edge on a rail with it. So would this setup make it harder to do jumps?
