Same thing thats on the Hero. Just maybe a little tweak here and there. Rocker between and an extra kick just after the bindings. Its one of the more well done rockers on the market.

Have you been living in a cave? The Hero is a really good board. Though it could be the best board on earth and you'd probably hate it. You come across as on of those "I hate Burton cause that the 'core' thing to do" kinda dudes.

learn to ignore stupid people nivek

vrocker is a very well done version of the new rocker craze, i have yet to hear a bad thing about it and everyone that has touched a hero raved about it. even burton_avenger aka angry snowboarder who absolutely despises burton said he was looking for something to hate on the board and it was impossible.

If you want a harder base feel you'll need to go with their hardest bed that they make for the EST bindings. That was the only one that I actually liked from est.

Hero doesn't have much pop because its a RC board...its pretty normal.

And EST isn't so bad (I use Union and Burton bindings and they fit fine on there. Yes, even the unions...just rip out the padding on the disks.

Board: Directional
Bindings: Burton Missions 07
Boots: Burton Freestyle 07

Anyone that claims rocker/ reverse camber decks don't have pop either doesn't know how to ride one or just plain sucks at riding. It changes how you ride.
