There seems to be a long road ahead in the evolution of "rockers" and there are several different types. This is confusing to the consumer as this all sorts out. Which is why I strongly suggest a demo before you sink good money into a pair of new skis. rocker tip, tail, tip only, flat camber. reverse camber, reverse sidecut....... a lot of different variations out there, just look at JJ or S7 for multiple sidecuts and cambers. Interesting to see, and I think next season's (2011) will bring along further refinement and possibly the elimination of some apporaches. Just search here and you will see so many opinions about what folks like and don't like. Do you need them? No, certainly not, are they fun, heck, ya' my HB's are a blast but it's different and you may or may not care for them. I do think the 5/x or 10/x rocker is most versitile and possibly no tail rocker too. There seems to be a split in the approach though between the JJ and S7 designs and the more tradtional designs like the goat, Sultan and many others. Take a look at the Atomic Bentchetler and the blog. http://www.atomicsnow.com/catalogue/Alpine_US.pdf page 6.
