System tech is a tri-radial unblended sidecut.

the never summer evo has what they call vario power grip, where the radius of the side cut changes from being deeper towards the tip and tail, a little more shallow going towards the feet and completely straight in the middle.

the arbor has a normal side cut for the most part except for right under both bindings there a bump the is suppose to grip the snow better
Ohhhh. Well I've only heard good things about the Evo so I'm definitely checking it out.

Thanks for the heads up! Honestly though, watching some reviews the Rocker looked horrible unless your doing presses. Here on the "Iced" Coast, the Rocker would get me killed

Get your moneys worth and get a 2012 Arbor Blacklist. The Blacklist is possibly one of my favorite boards of all time. Though if you want to stick with Signal, wait for the 2012 drop and get the Rocker Light. It was a super fun board and killer on rails with enough board to hit some jumps. It also comes in zero cam if you wanna stick with that.
