The rocker is gonna have a looser feel since the edges are lifted, but as soon as you go toeside or heelside your edges will make contact. The rocker is gonna be easier to flex at the tip and tail also. I would say if your planning on riding 90%+ of ur time in the park and love to butter/jib id go with the hero...but if you want to ride all mountain then stick with camber.

the guy in the shop said , that the hero is indeed a park but also freestyle board.
and that it won't begin to shake if you are going faster than usual.
But i also want a little more information abouth the rocker board. i love the park , but why
should i go for rocker if theire are als camber park boards...a friend said to me that his hero was
the best park board he had ever ridden...(don't really believe the guy).

if your still unsure maybe you can ask him to test his board

try it more than once though...i heard it takes a few times riding a rocker before getting used to it. I've also heard once you do you wont want to go back to a regular camber board.

The only thing that I can think of that TBT is worse for, is waxing it. It can't be fun to wax those round tips.
