Nivek I know. And I actually land a little front. But the MENTAL fear is from my rocker experience being a SubPop. If you land tip heavy on that at all you wash out. So like I said, its a MENTAL thing, not reality.

Cr0_Reps_Smit hitting big jumps with rocker isnt hard unless you land backseat heavy more so then often, in which case you just need to work on your jumping skills because thats how you snap tails anyway.

Nivek I second the Believer. Rocker mentally sketches me out on large jumps, Believer is zero camber.

Cr0_Reps_Smit if you want something buttery/fun but still can handle the mtn the NeverSummer evo-r is a very good board. also the NS SL-r is a slightly stiffer version of the evo-r. from lib tech the TRS is a awesome board and is on the stiffer side but with the banana its fairly easy to press still.

jogreenl im 5' 10'', 150 pounds
i ride all mountain. i used to ride a burton custom x which was pretty stiff and i would like to experiment with something a little softer so i can butter and press. im a strong rider. i do expert terrain and big park features and it just depends on the snow conditions to what i ride. ive only got enough money for one board so it needs to be versatile. hopefully under $600 dollars.

4: find all the boards from all the companies that fit your criteria and pick the one with the coolest topsheet.

It's eerie how much sense this makes.
