I found either Camrock (rocker-camber-rocker, such as used by YES) or Arbor's rocker with griptech a good compromise. Playful, more forgiving and still chargeable.

Have a look at the YES Greats or Arbor Coda. They might suit you better than the Custom. There are loads of reviews around the interwebs.
The one board I was looking at was one of burtons v-rocker boards that has the mixture of rocker and chamber

Also a valid option even though the edge hold on the Flying V isn't the best. There are better solutions out there.

Also, keep in mind that there are different mixes of rocker and camber out there, each with their own attributes. Flying V means Camber-Rocker-Camber (just like Lib Tech, Never Summer and others use), others do it the other way round (YES, Ride, ...). Then of course there's also flat and rocker profile . People have their preferences and will tell you why which mix is the best. The truth is only in trying any of them and see what suits you best. Judging from your first post I think you would enjoy a hybrid camber profile.

A great thread about this topic is here: http://www.snowboardingforum.com/boa...g-between.html
