DESCRIPTION:
The Burton Custom Snowboard 2008—the legend just keeps getting better. No other board in history has had more influence on the progression of modern-day freestyle than the Burton Custom. With Mads Jonsson, Heikki Sorsa, and Mason Aguirre at the controls, freestyle’s future has never been brighter. With an easy-to-throw-around, twin-like shape and graphics so fresh and so clean (clean) it’s filthy, the Burton Custom kills it from the halfpipe to the piste. As the shred crew continues to explore the outer limits of what’s considered possible on a snowboard, the design crew continues to explore the outer limits of what’s possible for the Burton Custom Snowboard.

Strengths: Good at high speed, very stable. Very economical on the flat, easily keeps it`s speed. If you like going down the mountain in one direction -straight - it`s the board for you. Built for speed. It`s got a soft flex but rides over the bumps easily provided once again it`s down the mountain not accross it.
Weaknesses: Got the feeling from riding that the board was built to go in one direction, rather difficult to turn i felt. As in ship. Maybe it was the length I had the 164, and I`m 180pounds 6 foot, size 12US

Strengths: Anyone can ride this board, it can make any rider from low-intermediate to advanced happy. Good for jibbing. Great all-around board.
Weaknesses: Kinda soft & flexy in my personal opinion. A bit overpriced. Basically a lighter and slightly stiffer Custom.

Strengths: Best board I've ridden to date. Demoed many before I bought. Leather topsheet acts like one big stomp pad. If you can get at $350 or better, buy it (Of course, demo one before you buy - see if it suits you).
Weaknesses: Top sheet is more durable then I thought it would be BUT it will tear underneath your bindings. NBD unless you change bindings with different/smaller foot print.

Strengths: adjustment posibilities are very good, hit few times and still OK (material is strong)

Strengths: I bought a Custom because I really wanted to step up my riding, my other board had too much flex (I’m not a jibber) so based on my ability and such good reviews I decided to buy a Custom. Top board, held an edge really good, the stiffness was just right for me, though having said that it does have a weakness, I found that the base scratches easily, I found heaps of fine scratches after one day of riding, but the conditions weren’t the greatest. And I don’t see the fine scratches affecting the performance of the board. I know there are heaps of good reviews on this boards but it deserves it, Burton has built a strong reputation and knows how to make a great board, Burton invests a lot of money and time into product testing and it has paid off.

Strengths: The very best board in the Burton snowboard line-up. The Custom X is the pinnacle of high performance all-mountain boarding. Flawless edge hold and a nice powerful, perfect flex make this board a killer in all conditions. Solid performance in the pow too.
Weaknesses: The price can be a little stiff but I can think of nothing negative on this board.

Strengths: Very snappy. Not too stiff. Great graphics.
Weaknesses: This deck did not meet its hype for me. I gleaned to own a custom X for the past 5 years and now I have it. I have upgraded from a 2005 standard custom and I felt it practically rode the same. I thought I was going to improve my ripping status. I thought I was gonna pull bigger airs, speed down the grooms faster. It did not. A high end board will not magically improve your riding. Its riding time! Spend your money on lift tickets instead! I felt it rode the same as my 2005 regular custom which I have upgraded from.

Strengths: Very adjustable for lower cost binding, reasonably light and well cushioned, hiback cusioning does not break down as the more expensive Cartel cushioning does, good all round binding, toe strap better than cartel toe strap, grips well. Good all rounder and quite tough. Frosted versions look great.
Weaknesses: A little heavier then more expensive bindings, straps do get stiff in the very cold but I had no breakages or stuck/slipping ratchets so all good. Nice leather, very soft but where rubbed by my wire laces on Boa boots wears quickly, prob ok on other types of boot. Not a massive score because they are relatively heavy, if you want supreme light bindings do not go for these, if you are anywhere between Intermediate down to first timer these are perfect.
