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.

Exponentially advanced. If you want the all-terrain versatility of the world-renowned Custom™, built with only the finest materials available, the Custom X™ is the only choice. With design input by Dave Downing, Burton re-engineered the construction by maximizing the fiberglass for an optimized strength-to-weight ratio that do... More»

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: 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: Burton threw their full R&D force at this one, the result is seriously the pinnacle in snowboard weaponry, super-light, super-fast, super-responsive, did we mention super-light. If you`ve the cheddar, this is the best board period for riding the whole mountain. I know you want one. We all want one.
