Low cost board with hybrid bottom profile similar to C2BTX

I’d like to find a lower cost board with a hybrid profile similar to C2 BTX, for less $$$ than something like LibTech TRS or GNU Riders Choice or the higher priced boards by Lib or GNU.

I have already tried full positive camber and
Camber between bindings and accelerated rocker on tip with some in tail
Continuous rocker (like Banana)
Flat between bindings with rockered tip and tail.

I am looking for something like C2BTX now. I'm looking for something under $350 if possible. It doesnt need to be this years model and I dont care that much about stiffness, paintjob at this point. I envision something between 154 - 156

Any recommendations?

Do you mean you don't want a super stiff board?
What kind of riding do you want to do?

look into any of the nitro boards with gullwing reverse camber. Not exactly the same since it is flat past the center rocker but should have a similar feel. Haven't ridden one myself but those that have seem to like it.

check out wiredsports.com line of non-namebrand boards. I think it is camp seven and system. All under $200 and various rocker profiles.

My type of riding is ultimatly more of the Freeride & All Mountain side of the spectrum rather than FreeStyle or Park. To clarify, while I would likely be more satisfied with a stiffer board, stiffness and flex to a certain degree are not a high prrioty feature for this specific purchase and I could go either way at this point. Meaning, I dont want to spend extra $ for a stiffer core, carbon torsonal flex, etc.

Check out Thrive Snowboards. New company based out of Lake Tahoe. I demoed one of their boards a couple weeks back. Overall a decent ride. Their list prices are high, but because they are new they are offering up great discounts. Could pick one up around 300ish. Similar camber profile to C2 or NS's RC.

Check out the Camp Seven Uprise. It's a cam-rock-cam for under $200. Can't say how it'll ride or how long it will last but you'll def get your $200 worth.

Look for a 2012 Flow Drifter. Full retail on one of those is $399 so finding last years for under $350 shouldnt be too hard. Its perfect for you.

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

My suggestion is the Camp 7 Valdez. It will fit your needs for sure, and it's sub $200 brand new. WiredSport makes them and they ride like a $400+ board. I spent a significant amount of time on the 156 Valdez and it never let me down. It has the rocker & camber profile you're looking for as well.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!
