    I have the 2013 Auras. Love them. I need to replace them, but no shop in Telluride carries them to demo. Can someone tell me if and how the newer, full rocker profile skis differently from the old profile of rocker tip - camber - twin tip tail version? Pros and cons? Thanks!

    I never skied the tip rocker version, but I can tell you the change from full camber to full rocker (besides the 6 mm width growth) made for all the chops of the original Aura, but easier. Easier everything. And a smidgeon of fun factor lacking in the original.
