My friend has a 2010 youngblood camber and really liked it but he still got a Revolver and likes it even more. Better hold on our icy conditions and more playfull. At 225lbs on a 156 Revolver he hit 30mph the other night.

What are your angles?

Front 15, rear 5, on day 1. Front 10, rear -5, day 2. Shifting the front binding angle didn't seem to have any effect. It still had a tendency to pull frontside. I'm thinking it could be the rear angle, stance width (rear is at reference, front is +1, and I am 6-1, 180lbs on a 156cm custom v rocker ICS)or a lateral shift issue(I wear a size 11 boot)and currently have it set slightly to the heelside of center.

Consider the Ride DH2.4 -- it's cambered between the bindings with just a little rocker (ProRize) at the tips. It feels just like a cambered board but still has some catch-free benefits. Great for East Coast stuff. The DH2.5 is the same, but I don't think comes in your size.

Do you know of any other cambered boards with the rockered corners? Any Rome or Capita's?

might be that you twist or rotate your upper body when loading the tail...watch your shoulders

You are correct, I did notice that I have a tendency to do that. I was thinking that if I opened up my front foot more (like to 18 degrees) it might counteract that. Do you think I should try shifting the rear binding from negative to positive, I haven't tried but plan on dabbling in the parks eventually?

idk, but probably better to correct your form...lot of riding is about form...not equipment.

Rossignol has the camber with rocker outside profile. Have you considered a fully flat board like salomon or Smokin have. Smokin also has clash rocker that is like Neversummers but more mellow. I went from camber to that and barely had to change my riding.

The rotation when you ollie is the rocker board revealing a flaw in your technique.
