24WERD yea i noticed , just too lazy to edit the post.

the main point was that s-rocker had three variation maybe more.

don't know for sure.

skip11 @24WERD: It's cambered not flat. I've demoed the board. Put it on the table after riding to check the profile and it's definitely 199.98% camber with little bit of rocker near the nose just like the diagram. And the the diagram shows it's clearly camber not flat in case you didn't notice.

Jason913 looks like a smaller camber profile with a rocker section in the nose

On that model its flat after the rocker not camber.

Burton use the "s-rocker" on 3 diff variations some with camber and some flat like on the new fish.

Do a search in the 2015 thread on EL for picts of the diff S-rocker.
are you SURE it's flat? it looks pretty cambered to me

Manicmouse The NS Cobra is their board that's closest to "All Mountain" apparently. I bought it for the pow after getting sick of regular cambered boards and burn on my back leg. I needed a board that was capable in all conditions because I don't ride enough (or earn enough...) to justify a gun rack of snowboards!

I'm very impressed with its performance on the hard pack as well as the build quality. Got it when in CO at the recommendation of a local who worked in one of those small repair shops at a condo

Bertieman It's easier to maneuver in trees with a smaller board. Powder boards tend to be longer...

I have a never summer legacy (same as the SL) and I find it great for everything. It does great in powder and in the trees. I haven't tried a r/c/r or camber, so I can't say for sure if a camber is better for carving.

I can assure you never summers are tremendous compared to burton in the quality aspect. I've had 2 burton boards and those things look pretty, but they get beat up easily. I've bashed my never summer into trees and it's come out with less dings than my burton.

Some ol' story with mass producing companies - they start off quality, then get big. Eventually to sell everything cheap, but have a few good boards that are ridiculously priced.

Jason913 its in my first post.

Riding is 40% pow 30% groomers 30% trees. No park or jumps at this point. but next season who knows what i'll be into
