Rocker Camber Hybrids

Hey guys. I am trying to decide which rocker camber I will go with this year. The three I am thinking about are the GNU Danny Kass-155 , Smokin Superpark-156 , and the NS Revolver-155. They are all similar (especially the Mervins) but I want to know how they ride from anything from deep pow to your everyday kickers and jibbing. So if anyone has any feedback to share that would be awesome.
Here's my specs:
5'10"
180lbs
10.5 boot
Intermediate rider

Where do you ride mostly? If you don't need the hyper-magna-traction, then maybe NS? I like the Smokin dudes and their boards are sweet, and they are from NorCali, my hometown area.

I am living in Japan, so anywhere from Nagano to Hokkaido. So looking for a board to take me off the groomers and still perform nicely in the park. Conditions get a little icy on the top and especially near the end of season when the weather gets a little crazy.

Just out of curiosity why the danny kass over the lib trs or the gnu riders choice? I think both of those are a tad softer which might work better for you in the park.

NS's Vario Power Grip will help you with the ice. I ride on the East Coast and my Circuit-R does fine in icy conditions.

i have an 09 Kass w/ mtx and btx and just picked up an 11 ns evo... havent gotten to ride the evo yet, but i honestly felt like the mtx was a little overrated. still didnt feel very comfortable digging the edges in on icy days, though i LOVE the btx feel...however, the 09 kass is full banana, so i wanted to try a hybrid and consolidate my boards. i really love the kass, but i expect the evo to outperform it. i also have a regular cambered burton and i much prefer riding reverse or hybrid camber, even after learning on standard camber


edit: also, the kass is most definitely the stiffest of the boards ive ridden. the ns seems to be really right in the middle, a little on the softer side but by no means a noodle like my friends extr-txtr


Never Summer Evo 153/Restricted ReFlex Cartel
Gnu Danny Kass 156 BTX
