I have a 165 and Cartels. I'm 6'0" and 205 lbs, size 12 Vans boot at reference width, 1 notch heelside from centered, +18/-12 deg. I've been on it 4 days: one "test" day here in upstate NY on groomers, then 1 pow day in Stevens Pass, WA (14"), and 2 more in Feb in Revelstoke, BC (45cm and 28cm each day).
It rides just fine on groomers. The transition to S-rocker is just aft of my front binding, so it's a bit more "pivoty" than a straight-up camber board - my other board is a 162W Custom-X, so that's my reference. I find it very maneuverable in glades and the short camber section in the back allows decent carving and easy skid turns. In crud, it's a little rough and chattery as the S-rocker transition bangs on chunks a little hard. In the pow it rocks. In Revie, I dialed in ~1.5" of set-back, and I literally was floating through thigh deep blower and slashing through the glades.
With your weight forward, the nose stays down and it acts more like a camber - hybrid on groomers. In pow, you pull your weight more centered, and the nose pops up for float. Very happy with it... Awesome ride for a multi-purpose board.
