compare the burton custom with a NS SL? same price point what are the differences? I've always heard the custom is a great board...on these message boards I see no love...strange?
The Custom is an okay board, but it hasn't got a 3 year warranty, newer tech and the bombproof build. It's just another cambered board.
The whole point of the Burton "hate" is that it shouldn't be at the same price point as NS or other such companies. Personally, I'd put the Custom $125-$150 lower, maybe more. At its current price point, it's a disappointing purchase. And in my experience, that goes for pretty much everything Burton. I've bought some sale stuff and been pretty happy, but then found out the original MSRP was something utterly ridiculous
