Me too BA. My ride Dose was almost flat when brand new five years ago.. And yes, my Machete carves better than a cambered board.

Thanks for all the feedback. Sounds like it's worth a shot...now only if I could go demo it or get a flat board on a ridiculous sale. Any reco's for size? I currently ride 156, 5'8" 160lbs (female). Should I go a little shorter on the flat board?

is it true that you can size down on zero cambered boards since the entire effective edge is flat? seems like it would make sense to me. I was thinking of getting a 52 for a jib/park/groomer type board...i'm 6'1" about 165 lbs...

Burton fix 2010 is a zero cam. I saw it at burton outlet at 30% off. Almost pulled the trigger but ended up with a swindle.

Ive been on at least 20 cambered boards in my two decades of snowboarding. My Nitro Team Gullwing carves as well as almost any of them (except my boardercross-Palmers). The one thing a great cambered board preforms better in is catching an edge in a icy landing after some serious air!

My personal opinion is that rocker/flat boards is more forgiving on edgepressure and therefore can be pressed harder. With cambered boards, especially on groomers, i sometime press my board into a nosedives (the front edge cuts to deep) causing major bails..!! The rocker/flat boards ive tried handles this kind of carving smoother and dont causes the same type of "nosedives".

Excuse my spelling, Im Swedish!

Love to hear more experiences with flat camber!
Considering a board that is flat but, well I never really considered zero camber before!

I should add i want a park board that can handle the whole mountain.
I already have a hybrid rocker camber.
