Just curious if there are certain splitboards that are abit better at skiing downhill and what compromises would that have for it as a board?

Personally, I have no interest in skiing.

It could be me, my skins, karakoram bindings or it could be the board shape. This is just a basic observation. Not like I go try to ski. It just happens sometimes while touring. I could be totally up in the night with this one, I swear my rockered Venture storm skis better than my old cambered Voile freeride. I think the rocker lets you snowplow turn easier? Where the camber sort of grabbed and 1 leg would go in the wrong direction?
