I'm a camber kid, I grew up riding it, and that's what I enjoy riding all over the mountain. The only rocker boards I have are for when it snows, and there's fresh powder. Personally, I felt it was too washy and not responsive enough, but that's just my personal preference. I'm not a fan of hybrid rockers at all. I think you get the worst of both camber profiles with none of the benefits of either, IMO. My buddy used to be the regional team manager for Forum, however, and he loved the DD. Just not for me. Clearly it works for you, which is rad, I just thought it sucked.

The cambered 154 Destroyer was so fun though, absolutely bomb proof and just crushed through anything. I really enjoyed the pop it had as well, when I was in the park. I'd really like to find one of those to have in my quiver/collection.

Flex. Destroyer is supposed to be stiffer. Never ridden it though.

Not since 2011. Ever since then it's been the opposite despite what Forum said.

I'll take your word on it, I haven't been on a Youngblood in season or two, but spent some time on the Destroyer last year.

Personally I'm a big fan of Artec's Nima Jilali snowboard.

Nothing fancy, but its reliable, rides well, and takes anything I throw at it. On my second one because I liked it so much

If you really like it buy em up. Artec is done. And has anyone else joticed Nima rides his very old M4 more than his Artec Pro model? Weirdo.
