Default burton custom rocker?

im looking at a new board for the comming season i was going to get a burton custom ICS. but i just saw the burton custom rocker. and i like the ease of butters and stuff on it. i ride mainly park and mountain freestyle. tricking off of ledges n stuff. but where i ride is mainly man made snow cuz of our weather so it gets icy alot. and i was wondering how does the rocker do in ice?

I got last years custom ics, love it. rocker just isnt for me. as for boots i dont have any experience with dc boots, but I have the burton ozones and they are sick. sow comfortable, light, and they have a smaller footprint (good for me, size 14 feet). Yes they have the speed laces, but its the upgraded version, i like em so thats my recommendation. If you insist on regular laces I'd check out the 32 lashed or ride deuce. also have you looked into boots with boa?

there is no reason to get a rockered board if you ride icy manmade snow.

I don't like rocker because I ride in PA. All I ride is hardpack, and even though I ride park most of the tie I just don't feel as stable hitting bigger jumps on a rockered board compared to camber. And whenever I decide to freeride a little bit, rockered boards just won't hold a turn as good as camber.

Ive been looking into never summers Rocker camber and it seems like the best of both plus variop grip sidecut for ice. Look into an Evo-R or SL-R if you want rocker with the grip of camber
