TBT vs. Rocker

So I get the difference between a banana and most other rockers but I honestly just can't understand how TBT is so different. I've tried looking at the diagrams and everything and I honestly just don't get it. Can someone please explain...

It's flat/cambered/regular (however you want to look at it) in the middle. Out towards the tip and tail is when the sides curve up like a skateboard.

It's explained on Bataleon's website.

I did read the site but I don't get the major difference between that and like a k2 rocker or the other rockers out there.
