Jones Mountain Twin would be a good one to look at. Arbor's full rocker boards hold great on east coat hardpack too if you were open to a full rocker board. You could look at the Coda or Element. Griptech works just as well as magnetraction I have found. You can also look at Smokin', they are similar profiles to Lib and have magnetraction as well. I have ridden a couple of their flat camber boards but have heard great things about the KT22.

I'm pretty sure it all depends on what you prefer, its a mental thing more than anything. I only started recently, on a Ride camber board. I was pretty crap at the time but didn't like that board much, then got a rocker and loved it.
Rockers are a lot more playful, always wanting to turn so I find them to switch edges really quickly. I also seem to find way more edge grip on a rocker, but that could be the magna-traction?
I've got a TRS now, not had any problems with stability (but it does turn so easily you can trip yourself up), couldn't be happier with it. But I never really spent much time on camber boards...

So I guess I should correct myself. I have been messing with my board for a quick trip to the slopes to see if I still dislike it. I found that its a ride Yukon 164. It is apparently the wide version of a ride timeless. That's about all I found by googling a bit. It's an 2005 model it looks like by image search. Apparently intended for powder and free ride and supposed to be stuff but by what standards I don't know, nor do I know how it compares to what I've been looking at online.

Still want to get something new, but I ride so seldom anymore that I'm not in a huge rush. I may wait for the big discounts in the offseason.

If me correcting this makes you guys think of what I may like better please chime in again, but you all have been a great help regardless. Thanks.
