Default Stoked on traditional camber?

Anyone else going to ride a regular camber stick this year? I got hooked on the hybrid rocker camber (rocker overall with camber underfoot) last season with my first NS board (151 Evo).

I'm kind of looking forward to going back to a mid-flexing, true twin regular cambered stick as an alternative. Anyone got anything particular they are going to try out? It seems getting traditional camber limits your options a bit. Bataelon's TBT looks interesting but really seems to compromise on the qualities you would want from positive camber to begin with.

I was checking out the DC PLY, but reviews seem to indicate the board is middle of the road in some areas, a bit of a disappointment. Maybe for $380, it's still a decent stick? What will you guys be riding?

I still have my 08/09 NS Heritage.

When you just want to go balls to the wall hauling ass, I still haven't found anything with the edge hold of a good old cambered plank.

I'll take camber out to remind myself why it sucks. There's still cambered options out there though just have to look. I rode the Signal Park and some of the Technine stuff with it and they were pretty solid.

I knew BA would show up soon to hate on traditional camber.

I generally prefer the rocker cambers, but I'll still take out my trusty cambered plank to ball out around the mountain at mach 2 occasionally.

I hate camber with a passion but I also rode more 2012 decks with it than in probably the last 3 or 4 years. Oh Arbor Relapse for a cambered deck is fucking money as well. Twin, mid wide, mid flex, handle it all.

I probably will just nab a cheap T9 or Stepchild from last year. They seem to have a decent range of mid/soft flex pattern, no frill cambered boards. If I don't find anything compelling, I'll just stay on the Evo. I always take down my edges quite a bit, especially at the contact points. I like the feel of camber for some things.

Nope, my cambered board is still reserved for non-slope-stupidity since I don't mind ruining it. It sure as hell holds an edge better then other shapes, but generally that's not something I want. Hyperspeeding groomers is always the last way I want to spend the day shredding.
