skip11 "I completly disagree, theres a reason the big mountain chargers (Jones,Xavier, DCP) all ride directional RCR, all the speed of the camber with a floaty rocker tips for better float"

Their RCR boards are mostly camber (camber past the bindings, only minor rocker at the tail, and stiff flex). Compare that to RCR board that only has camber up until the middle of the inserts and it rides totally different.

If you're talking about pros then Travis Rice rides a CRC board and is spinning of spines in Alaska. How bout Lando, Ejack, Blair Habenicht, all hard chargers and rides CRC.

Point is it's all preference.

TwiggyMK I love my Capita doa. Only ridden her for a weekend in some harrrd packed snow/ ice and slush on detuned edges, so can't comment too much on performance. The hybrid camber's definitley worth trying out.
I'm 6" at 73ish kg I went for the 154 still so stable when you charge. Some women look in disgust at the top sheet 😄

I have had the similar experience as LGorge. I learned on camber boards, tried the flat boards then full rocker then CRC. Now I'm riding mainly RCR or RFR boards. I don't like the feel of rocker between the binding. The teeter-totter, riding on a saucer feel.

Went with Rossi 161W MagTek, Rossi 164W Krypto and pretty much felt just like you. But after 30 days or so on RCR the N.S. RipSaw early 2015 release intriged me so I jumped back on the CrC profile. Notice little r which is IMO was a game changer. CrC gives me the stability at high speed, playfulness around the mountain, and great edge hold.

Rossi boards or RCR for groomers, jumps in park, boxes and ice coast conditions.

RipSaw CrC for powder, glades, high speed carving, late day crud, and even moguls.

So...

Like the Darker Series? Or C3 that came out like two seasons ago?

It's pretty stiff. They call it mid-stiff and that seems about right. Capita rates it as a 7 out of 10 I believe and that seems pretty accurate.^

Wrong with it? Nothing. Camber profile preference is exactly that, a personal preference.

Ravaging Rami So I went with the T.Rice Pro in HP and I love it! The board rips everything to shreds!
