I gotta say when I rode rocker in pow for the first time it was disappointing. Felt loose and like I couldn't feel my board. I'll admit I like rocker for those landings when I scrub because I land instead of catching and falling, but other than that I hate it. I also noticed how much more camber throws you into spins. Much more responsive. These are not facts people, just experience. I like it better in pow, doesn't mean it's better.

After 25 days this season riding rocker I went back to my custom today and I loved the feeling of control and the confidence of landing kickers

Yea, but i sold my billy and im planning on the unity whale. Notice it has camber and then a bit of rocker in the nose for float. But camber gives it power. Same as hovercraft. Keeping my lobster. Fuck rc or rocker, that shit is cheating.
