Default 2012 Rome Artifact - Camber OR Rocker? Anyone demoed?

Hi guys. Has anyone demoed this years artifact? The rockered or the cambered, doesn't matter. What were your thoughts?

I really cannot decide on what to buy this year. I had a K2 WWW Rocker last year and it was fun but I don't know if I liked the whole rocker thing. Everyone I talked to keeps telling me to just get rocker but I still don't know. I ride a ton of rails all season long and hit a few jumps but I don't trick anything over 30ft.

Camber is softer than the rocker version.

Look at the Signal Park Flat and Nitro Swindle.

Hmm thanks for the input. I'll definitely check out those flat camber boards. I always heard they felt kind of "dead" though? I hear great things about the Swindle too but I'm hesitant just because I've never had a Nitro. But thanks!

Nitro makes a good stick. I still have my Subzero from its first season as an early release and it has more than 200 days on it I'd guess. Hard ridden and still goin strong.

It's actually exactly the opposite.

I actually bought the Rome Artifact Rocker 147 this weekend and it is ace. Absolutely love it as it is so soft and flexy and perfect for the snowdomes in the UK where it will be used on rails and boxes. Would definitely recommend it.

With all my respect to BurtonAvenger, last year I had both, Rome Artifact 153-regular version and the Rocker version 153 (Made in Austria) and the Camber version was slightly stiffer than the Rocker variant.
