that's exactly what the camber-rocker-camber was made for. i just switched to one this year and i really like it. i got a never summer legacy. if you really want some serious edge hold with the camber-rocker-camber, get a gnu or lib tech c2btx with magnetraction.

Alright so the more I read the more I am leaning towards the Proto CT 154. Thoughts?

go for it. keep in mind that the proto will be softer than that sl you demoed. and a smaller sl will be softer than that sl you demoed of course. but i don't think you can go wrong with either. i really like my legacy. also, you said you felt like you had trouble getting your edge in, it took me a while to get used to the new shape of the board. i had the same thing switching from a regular camber, but after a few days, i won't be going back.

Yeah I wasn't sure if the toe edge issue was due to the board shape, length/stiffness, or the boot/binding combo and subsequent heel lift I was dealing with. Maybe all of the above. My original thought was to just grab a 155 SL and I hadn't even considered the Proto, but after reading up a bit I think I want to give it a shot. NS sure is proud of it though...$540!

Omni kinda fits in between, its really versatile and will feel more like camber than the other two and in my experience Signal bases are super durable and super fast.
I am looking for something similar to the OP. I like the look of the coda but I have heard so many people talking (not just on here) about the durability issues. The flow looks good. I am also looking at the Rome agent rocker. Have you ridden it Nivek?

I have a couple of freeride boards that do well in pow and I really want a more surfy mainly rocker board to play around with and do more freestyle. I do ride mostly pow but like to play around in it and on the way to it.

Any other recommendations appreciated.

Alright so I pulled the trigger on the 154 Proto CT. Can't wait to get it on the mountain for a few days and try it out!
