Haven't ridden a camrock board yet, but I really like the idea of the profile. I have ridden Mervins C2BTX since switching from trad camber which works for me, but I want a little different feel. True rocker does not work for me.

70% all mtn freestyle, 30% park for the jump lines mostly. Prioroties in a camrock deck are stability at speed, ability to charge through crud without getting tossed around and super lively snap on ollies and jumps. Don't want to take it too directional.

I'm 5'10" 165lb, size 8 boots. So looking at 156-158cm. So far I'm looking at the following. Any thoughts/info/experience are appreciated.

-Yes The Greats
-Technine Camrock
-Technine Icon
-Capita BSOD
-Capita Totally Fkn Awesome
-Capita DBX
-Rossignol One Magtek
-Rossignol Jibsaw
-Rossignol Angus

PS: If anyone has one of the above and would be interested in trading for a 11/12 Arbor Coda 155cm in like new condition let me know.

I've ridden every one of those but the Capita stuff. The two that stick out for what you're looking for are the Greats and the Angus or One. Although the Angus is better than the One in my opinion flex pattern is just better for all around mountain riding.

Thanks man. The AngrySB review of the technine camrock was pretty glowing. Is it just the flex pattern of the Rossi and yes that you find more fun? I pretty much want to charge crud after it gets tracked up w/o feeling sketched and pop over and off of anything I can find with a snappy tail.

Off of your list, I'd say the Capita TFA fits exactly what you're looking for. I'd also look into Signal boards. The Omni is a pretty fun ride.

You'll fold the T9 CamRock due to its flex pattern. For what you're looking for the One if you want a set back, Angus, or Yes will be better. Honestly I would say the One or Angus over the Yes.

Thanks man. Do you find the Omni rides short due to the rockered tips? I'm right in between the 156 and 159.

have you considered tbt? i ask cause you said you are not into full rocker and still want some snap...
Just based on what I've read I the TBT seemed like it might be a bit sketchy at speed or chargin through crud. Those are my assumptions though so I could be totally off. What do you think?

i have a lobster park board, which is basically a bataleon GW without the carbon. it's definitely not damp enough for charging through crud, but it can be done. i also ride a never summer sl, and to be honest, both are great at speed. i've never had trouble with tbt at speed, but for your style of riding, you'll want a board more geared for freeriding... as far as tbt as a whole, on edge, it's just as good or better than any board i've ridden in the short time i've been riding. it gets kind of weird when flat basing, but i feel that neversummers rc is just as weird. you get used to both, quickly, and you're not going to be flat basing at speed, anyway.

what made me think of suggesting tbt: i have a friend who charges back country and steeps who rides a bataleon OMNI, and dude rips. he plows through everything, and apparently it slays pow days. deep too. it's a mid stiff board, so it's not gonna be too stiff to have fun with.

if you get a chance to demo one, give it a shot... you might like it. i have camber and rc boards as well, and tbt is by far my favorite ride.

oh man, i crossed your thread with another one. for some reason i thought you were in hokkaido... asking about a powder board that could charge crud. sorry for the confusion...

anyway, yeah man. tbt is the shit. check out "the jam" "goliath" or "whatever."
super fun boards.

Not to me it didn't. Given your riding stats, I'd say the 156 would suit you well.
I'm know I gotta get on one and feel it out for myself, but how would you compare the camrock profile to the merivn C2BTX?

I'm picturing a little more of the locked in camber feel that I learned on, only with shorter contact points for playflness and float. Ultimately I want it to feel different enough from my Riders Choice to justify adding it.

Rossignol Magtek is great, I have a 2012 Jibsaw, love the board. I hear the 2013 version is even better and theyre going for less than 300 bucks on most sites

Any camrock will absolutely feel different than C2BTX. More stable and locked in without really losing the playfullness in the tips. Its the rocker style I prefer, unless you count flat as rocker, which I don't.

Got a recommendation off the list I made, or not off the list?

Isn't the Jibsaw RCR? Not that it matters to me:dunno:

I got to demo the Jibsaw & I loved it.:bowdown:

Had a Burton Hero up until then, after riding the Jibsaw for a couple hours, I never wanted to ride my Hero again.
The Jibsaw crushed it in every way.

Sold the Hero as fast as I could, before I wrecked it.:thumbsup:

The jibsaw was like $165? or something like that. About 8 months ago.
Someone posted it up in here somewhere, do a little search, you should find it.

This right here pretty much sums it up. Have a few different profiles in my quiver but camrock is definitely my favourite.
