I think it depends on the conditions for me and my two boards, a camber profile (Arbor Element CX 2010) and a rocker profile (Arbor Coda 2012). I do mostly all mountain riding, and prefer the Element CX for most conditions since it is more damp at speed, while the Coda is more fun with some new snow on the ground.

I rode a full camber board my first 13 years and switched to a LibTech C2 profile board (T.Rice) a few weeks ago and it's awesome. I can't see myself going back to full camber unless the C2 is squirrelly at higher speeds that I only usually reach when I go out west. I live in the Midwest and the runs at my local hills aren't long or steep enough to get above 30-35MPH.

Some of the best, most powerful and precise boards I've ridden are some variation on reverse camber.

lol yup. Funniest statement coming from this goober. TBT is great and I enjoy riding my bataleon occasionally but it is one of the most forgiving boards out there and is ideal for beginners but I can't charge nearly has hard on it as other CRC or RCR boards I have.

Two boards of similar flex, you should if you know how to load the tail, be able to ollie higher on a camber board. Simple physics.

Think of it this way
Camber = spring
Rocker = worn out spring
CRC = mostly worn spring
RCR = closest to camber

There is a reason almost every guy who is competing in Slopestyle or Half pipe still rides camber.

Similar flex is a bad assumption. Snowboard construction has come quite a long way and flex can vary across the board length. I.e., my CRC board has a soft rocker section with much stiffer camber sections.

This is not something new. This style of snowboard construction has been going on long before reverse camber boards. I have camber boards with soft tips and stiff middle sections and camber boards with soft mid section and stiff tips. These ideas were borrowed from ski companies pretty much from the begining of snowboard construction using CNC machines.
