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?

154-156 is a good size.

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".

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.
