I second the Believer. Rocker mentally sketches me out on large jumps, Believer is zero camber.

hitting big jumps with rocker isnt hard unless you land backseat heavy more so then often, in which case you just need to work on your jumping skills because thats how you snap tails anyway.

I know. And I actually land a little front. But the MENTAL fear is from my rocker experience being a SubPop. If you land tip heavy on that at all you wash out. So like I said, its a MENTAL thing, not reality.
