rocker / camber hrbrids - how do they compare?

rocker / camber hrbrids - how do they compare?

Has anyone ridden both to compare the two? It is not possible for me to demo either unfortunately.

All mountain east coast rider with more then a few yrs experience. Not into cruising or park that much. I need a new board.

For the sake of an example, let's say Lib/Gnu C2 versus something like Burton S. Seem to be the opposite profile of each other, yet give somewhat of a similar result.

Discuss, but stay on topic please

c2btx is camber under the insert packs and banana rocker between. it makes the board able to float in pow and be a bit more forgiving yet still retain its high speed stability and pop

I like the way cam rock feels, when done right. One of my favorite boards is the Signal Omni, the original camrock.

Other than that I prefer Zero camber. Which seems to be kinda dying out unfortunately. Try something from Smokin with anti-rocker. Magne and zero cam.

I've ridden a bunch of rocker, camber, and combo profiles. For what its worth I prefer the combo profiles as i feel they have more to offer. All the fun of rocker, but edge hold and ability to load the tail of the board in turns or for ollies. Burton's flying V profile worked really well for me last year, and I'm enjoying the Never Summer version even more this season. I'm riding an Evo, but based on your short description it sounds like you might really dig the SL. If you prefer other brands, there is no shortage of awesome design out there.
My riding = 100 days a season in VT on all types of terrain and for me this works out to be the most all around fun board to ride. just my .02.

When you say a bit more forgiving, do you mean more foregiving then a board with regular camber or more forgiving then a board with an S Rocker style or both?

If I am not mistaking, this is the profile similar to the S type or close to the Ross Amptek, correct?

Both of these have rocker between the legs if I am not mistaken.

Its what YES uses and what is on the Signal Omni. Rocker/camber/rocker.
