I don't think the Reverse Crew is an exact replica of the Custom although it was marketed that way. Those go for $199 whenever Sierra/Trusnow decides to put them on sale which is a few times a year. They're $299 new right now.

But otherwise I agree buying boards that are slightly used is a great way to get the most bang for your buck. Late-season sales, or even snapping things up over the summer/off-season you can often find good prices.
