Milo303 I will have a 2010 Capita Black Death 162 for sale here shortly. It's in good shape and is regular camber

lamb Endeavor, IMO...make sweet boards. And most of theirs are still traditional camber. The Live is one of the most versatile boards on the market; great pop, good flex, very responsive, and hold an edge for quite some time. Mine has held up great since the '08/'09 season and would easily last '10/'11 without any trouble.

kwoodshredder Not sure if you decided yet, but I bought an Arbor Coda 161 in January and it kills the mountain. I've ridden it in a foot of fresh, on groomers, through the chop, in slush, off of kickers, on boxes, on hard pack ice and in the pipe. It hasen't let me down yet. I've been very surprised at how well it does at everything. Good edge hold, plenty of pop, smooth on landings from big kickers. It is seriously a fun all mountain board to ride. It doesn't excell at just one certain part of the mountain, yet it does well at everything on the mountain (if that makes sense???).

that's what a lot of people don't realize: Bataleon boards are basically regular cambered boards with only a very slight raising of the contact points. It's a really simple tweak and that's the beauty.

They're also probably most popular in europe (since that's the brands origin and area of manufacture), so finding one and at the lowest price should be a very real option.

TXBDan the Sierra Crew is a Burton Custom for $250.

lorcar thanks for replying guys.
It will be my first board, that's the reason I'd like to stick to something more traditional. No chances to demo boards, so I prefer not to adventure in fancy setup/technology. That's the reason I'd like to stay with a well proven profile and improve as everyone else did.
Where I live everyone talks about the Custom, but as I learned there are many other boards. I am looking for a directional twin, all mountain, a bit more pow oriented than park, good for tricks on the flat, and no-chattering very stable at high speed, and carving like laser. That said, which one should I pick? I dont need a super stiff board like CustomX or T6.
I have been looking K2 Turbodream, but not sure about the Rocker. Then fell in love with the expensive K2 Zero. Very difficult to find here in Europe, and now I am reading they change the camber. How is this Flatline? Any of you rode it?
So, what should I pick? ;-) Arbor is not very popular here where I live, and finding it is going to be a mess

Triple8Sol For traditional cambered boards, Arbor is at the top of my list. They make amazing boards with nice clean graphics too. They have several AM boards to choose from, such as the Element, Coda, and Nightrain. I also like the Ride Concept TMS, Ride Society, and the MTX only Lib Travis Rice.

So I wonder: besides Burton Custom and Ride Concept Tms, which are the best most versatile all-mountain boards left with traditional camber?
They still offer Travis Rice libtech boards without camber
