Super flexible board...not sure I'd be comparing to the Custom X.
Its a Custom X shape with a softer flex, so yes.... the Custom X does come up when comparing the board.
I definitely want to put some time on this this year.

you may get some better responses over there as there seems to be more industry people and people riding next years gear than SBF, and they may be able to answer whatever questions you have.
