Can someone recommend some characteristics to look for in a spring (wet snow) ski? My current pair has a narrow waist (and are great carvers). But now the snow is soft, I feel that these skis cut into the mashed potatoes rather than riding on top.

So the % is percentage of the full length?
That means "30% tip rocker and 20% tail rocker" is only half of the length of the skis are traditional camber?
@cannonball thanks for the image. I ride a neversummer legacy, I may be wrong, however that rocker camber technology was created by them. Again, may be wrong. Thaka for the cool pics
Then Burton decided to throw their weight around and completely F*** Inca over with a bogus lawsuit and put them out of business.
The ski I liked best was next years Volkl Mantra in a 177 length, 100mm underfoot, with tip and tail rocker and no reverse camber - ski was fast and stable on the groomers and powered through the warm slushy GLOP with ease.
That above statement, makes me sad, corporate BS. I love my NS LEgacy 133 Wide, however it's not an all mountain board. Meaning, I really would like to try the magna traction tech on the icy days? Have you ever ridden a magna traction board?
