I dont get that camber profile at all.
The reason camber works is because when you stand on the board you load from the bindings to the tips which gives good edge hold but between the bindings actually has no downward force being applied to it. When you put rocker outside the bindings that effect is lost so the only place that is actually loaded is directly under your bindings.

if i were you i would go lib. the jones would be better if you rode more powder. but the lib will be good for all around. you could try looking at the dark series too they make those in wide, in quite a few sizes too. you basically just need to pick one, and bring it home. they're all good boards they're pro models and the way you say you ride i would go lib. its good for anything. i ride a lib and my buddy rides a lib, and we shred everything, mostly alpine and trees, but neither of us have anything bad to say about the boards. actually mine has gotten squirrelly on me a few times, tends to happen on hard packed roads that aren't flat. its pretty much like a speed wobble in the centre of your board. other wise it never happens, only then. but if you are as aggressive as you say you are, then you might want to consider a camber board. way better edge hold, one thing i miss about that compared to lib. i can still rip the shit out of it down the groomer, but that edge hold just isn't as stable as camber. (i think there are hybrid boards that are more camber biased, but will minor rocker) and i like to rip it and make nice hard turns and i've blown a few tires on my lib riding to hard, im talkin mach speed. the lib will ride good on groomers, pow, you name it. its a good all around board. but the edge hold is not as good as people say, unless i just ride to fuckn hard

For years I rode very stiff cambered boards and was really sceptical about this whole rocker board movement. The CamRock that Jones makes works. I ride a lot of hard pack and the I never had any control issues with that profile. The is board is much more agile than a full camber but doesn't feel out of control.

So I'm looking at Lib boards too...

Is the difference between all the various "models" with the C2-BTX (T.Rice, TRS, Skunk, etc) mainly variance in materials giving different flexes, pop, etc?

I am a similar rider to the OP in style (groomers, glades, occasional pow, NO park). I'm 5'9", 185 lbs, size 9.5 boot and am considering:

Lib TRS
Lib HotKnife (not sure if the C3 is better for me)
NS Cobra
NS Heritage
GNU Riders Choice
Jones Mountain Twin
Rossi One Magtek

Thoughts/input?

The T.rice Pro is a mid-wide already because Travis has a 10.5 size foot. This is from Lib Tech employee at an event!

You've got a good list going BWayne. I've ridden and enjoyed the Capita BSOD and TFA. The TFA would be great for you in my opinion. It's on the wider side, fast, stable, poppy, good float, etc. A great all around board. The hybrid camber gives the best of both camber/rocker worlds and the 3rd contact point grips really well on hard snow/ice.
