I'm also one of "those" people that isn't too into buying the generic board...so a Burton Custom just doesn't sound like a fun purchase, even though I know it is what it is because it's good at what it is ha. Would love to find a board to satisfy my needs that is more boutique. Butttttt I know, I know...get the board that's best for me despite it's name.
Burton Custom is far from a generic board. Lots of them sold for sure, but many people have no business being on one or a Custom is the wrong board for them - however for you it actually sounds pretty much spot on. Definitely consider/check out the Custom (regular camber version, not the Flying V and probably not the Custom X either).
