Mod Rocker is very light and poppy. The flat version is pretty poppy, the cambered version is very poppy.

As long as you have some camber in your profile you will be happy. If your E Coast look for some edge tech (Magnatraction et al) to keep you locked in on CRC decks. Really pays off with a center rocker. I find the camber is enough on the RCR profile to get that locked in confidence on hard/ice.

I have two midflex all mtn boards in my quiver. One is a Gnu Riders Choice (CRC) which I ride when conditions are the sketchiest. The other is a Signal Omni (RCR) which I lean toward if theres a bit of pow around. The rockered tips do help with float. Everytime I think I'm done with anything with rocker in the middle my Riders Choice brings me back. But, if I had to choose one profile I'd go RCR.

If I were you I would look into something like the Capita DOA, Signal Omni, Rossi One, Yes Asym. All highly regarded, mid stiff, versitile camrock decks.

thatkidwho Popping on it isn't hard but I do have push down to "pop". Instead of pushing down on the camber I'm pushing down the rocker points letting the tip/tail spring.

Raised contact points? Check this board:
B.O.D.

Rocker/flat/rocker with raised contacts. Basalt fibreglass, lots of carbon stringers. Sintered 7500 base. Bad ass graphic. Stiched sidewalls.


i feel like rocker and raised contact points is just over doing it lol dont you think it would be difficult to carve with?
