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).
Sucks, they discontinued the Concept line of boards. I forgot the name of the board that replaced it. I really wanted to try to concept UL at the test fest :/

SchultzLS2 The Custom X is a "tried and true" pipe board.

Enigmatic 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.

Leo 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.

mjung 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

Leo I'm no pipe rider, but I do know that the Custom is better than the Custom X for park. Custom X is more for bombers.
