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.

It's not about how many runs you get, it's the quality of the turns you made.
