Default looking for a 156 to 160 wide camber board

I'm looking for a board with camber, having trouble finding them. Not a big fan of rockers, too old school I guess. I'm looking for a camber only board in the range of 156 to 160 wide width only. All mountain riding and prefer a directional twin, I mainly stick to the high speed groomers and off piste when available hitting natural jumps and rollers along the way to the bottom. Any help or recommendations appreciated. Seems like every company has gone to rockers now and I just don't care for them.

Thanks Riley. Well the only brand I'm very familiar with is Burton and I'm not a very big fan of Burton. I've heard of all of these other brands but have no experience with them, which ones have a good reputation for their boards. Does Ride still make any of the DH models with camber? If anything I may just keep an eye out for another Ride Antic, pre-rocker years.

Well I did some checking into these boards and most of them are not available in wide models, I think the Nitro team was about the only one I could find in a wide 157 and 159. Any other suggestions?

Signal OG, classic camber, been in the line since day 1.
Nitro Pantera Wide. Deluxe camber.
there is very little rocker in the Ride Highlife, like so little you probably wont feel it. Its a lot of board and excels at high speeds and cutting through crud.
Arbor Roundhouse CX, pretty (:
Salomon Mans Board 159 will work with up to 12's. The rocker they talk about in that is basically just a little bit of an early rise tip. It is a super aggressive board, aptly named as it is designed for manly men.

i only listed camber boards that were directional and im sure i missed some. these are just commonly available.

the arbor a frame is arbor's top of the line freeride camber board, it really rips. same with the salomon xlt and burner. the other i just found on the internet and dont know much about.

Another board mentioned above is the Ride Highlife UL, it would probably work for you as well, having almost flat camber from the tail to about 10% before the tip where it has slight rocker to give more lift in powder, pretty much everyone who rides one says its the best thing they have ever ridden.

Ride does make the DH and it is all camber still but is a true twin.

Quite a few of the latest rocker/camber hybrid boards rip just as well as a camber only board, the companies are really dialing in the mechanics of the boards, with the hybrids shapes and fancy sidecuts like magnetraction, variogrip, griptech, etc. If you havent demoed some of the boards from lib-tech or never summer yet, try to.
