I use a cambered board as a parkboard, and when using a friend's board with rocker, I feel out of control. Ofcourse the rocker is more forgiving, but when jumping and going some faster, I just don't like it. Don't think I'll ever ride a rocker board, even for freestyle/jibbing...

Not missing it a bit, infact I decided to trash my revolver. %99 of the time I ride it's jibbing. I thought when I originally bought the revolver it would be my resort/trip board. After riding it and trying to go back to camber I cant. Its not fun, it sucks.

Feeling the board grip in the nose and tail during a turn felt like shit. The under the foot feeling I get on my n.s. has me never looking at camber again. With the exception of tbt, that is somthing I wanna try.

To each his own, but reg camber to me just didnt feel as fun or responsive.

Just had a Travis Rice in the powder for the first real time yesterday and really enjoyed it, it made my life much easier then my traditional camber. I also rode in some intense icy patches sunday and the Magnetraction was great in it! Really felt those teeth digging in.
