Not to me it didn't. Given your riding stats, I'd say the 156 would suit you well.

I'm know I gotta get on one and feel it out for myself, but how would you compare the camrock profile to the merivn C2BTX?

I'm picturing a little more of the locked in camber feel that I learned on, only with shorter contact points for playflness and float. Ultimately I want it to feel different enough from my Riders Choice to justify adding it.

+1. At your stats, anything longer than 156 will be a pain. I personally would even go 54/55. I'm 200 lbs on a 157 Proto that has almost all the stability I would ever want.

Rossignol Magtek is great, I have a 2012 Jibsaw, love the board. I hear the 2013 version is even better and theyre going for less than 300 bucks on most sites

Any camrock will absolutely feel different than C2BTX. More stable and locked in without really losing the playfullness in the tips. Its the rocker style I prefer, unless you count flat as rocker, which I don't.

Got a recommendation off the list I made, or not off the list?

Yes Greats or Rossi Jibsaw. Probably the Greats though.

Isn't the Jibsaw RCR? Not that it matters to me

I got to demo the Jibsaw & I loved it.

Had a Burton Hero up until then, after riding the Jibsaw for a couple hours, I never wanted to ride my Hero again.
The Jibsaw crushed it in every way.

Sold the Hero as fast as I could, before I wrecked it.

The jibsaw was like $165? or something like that. About 8 months ago.
Someone posted it up in here somewhere, do a little search, you should find it.

Nivek you've spent some time on the Signal Omni right? How would you compare the Omni to the Greats and/or Angus?

Thanks man.

This right here pretty much sums it up. Have a few different profiles in my quiver but camrock is definitely my favourite.
