The thing to understand about what you're looking for is you need a board with more contact length when on edge as that's where all your control is. A zero camber board is going to be your best bet as it provides a constant effective edge. Camber is tried and true and will give you a lot of what you're used to. Rocker isn't what you want it just doesn't grip enough. The only real reverse I've found that works is Omatics B.S. Tech s and Never Summer R.C. tech.
Personally I'd go zero camber and look at either the Salomon Answer or the K2 Believer. If you did go camber then the Ride Concept UL (probably my favorite pipe board to date) or if you can wait till next year snag the Omatic Celebrity B.S. (Louie Vito's pro model).

danny kass MTX by GNU
but i ride a burton custom and its fun in the pipe, you could get an 08/09 custom for cheap
then again...i see chris bradshaw havin a lot of fun in the pipe on a technine...so I dont really know if the board matters that much ...
(all things considered, I would go with the Sierra Crew if I were you)

|crazyface||lib tech TRS. if you can find one of the older ones with only MTX it will kill in the pipe and allmountain.|

I see way more Customs in the pipe than Custom X.
Another suggestion would be the Operator (Shaun White). I have the 2007 Shaun White and this board has a good flex to it with lots of pop. It's still my favorite board for ollies/nollies because of the pop to it.

but for Pipe and booters, i would think that the stiffness and edgehold of the X is better than the regular.
Of course for boxes and rails, the X is not so great
