The Crossrocket is the first board from Rome with the No Hang Ups Pop 3D camber. Basically, it has positive camber between the feet and the No Hang Ups 3D profile out from the bindings to the nose and tail. This board is amazingly stable at high speeds, and the 3D profiling allows it to be playful and floaty in deep or choppy snow. Check out Lucas Debari in the opener of the new Absinthe video Resonance to see how this board should be ridden.

Totally psyched that Rome introduced the 3D camber, however it can be both good and bad. The few times I've managed to get in in some deep stuff it performed amazingly well. The contoured base cuts through pow like a boat hull, and it really lets you get a good feel for the snow.
On the other hand, it can be extremely squirrely in icey conditions...which here in VT are generally the norm :)
I've had a few fast jump approaches where the board just slides right out underneath me and I end up on my ass. I think this is more to blame on the 3D profiling than poor edge hold. I've heard others mention this as well, and for this reason I don't think it would be as good in the park as say an Agent (which its stats are nearly identical to).
Overall, a super fun board, but it takes some real work to get used to the feel of the new camber, and it may be too frustrating for some riders. I spend most of my time on an Anthem SS, which could be why I haven't excelled more on the Crossrocket. Perhaps with some more soft stuff I'd enjoy it.
