I was just closing tabs on my browser and I saw this text describing the Antler in a review:

Imagine a Burton Custom X with more drivability. Now imagine a Burton Joystick with more torque. What you’ve just imagined is the Burton Antler. Yes it’s limits can be push beyond where you think you can push them. The 60° Carbon Highlights Hi-Voltage give it a more playful pop than the aggressive 45° that the Custom X has.

I think that's actually a perfect description. This board is a super forgiving Custom X. It was aggressive enough that I never felt like it couldn't handle the steep hairy stuff. I think it might be the perfect board for how I ride. My big worry was that it wouldn't be aggressive enough keeping up with the people I ride with but that's not going to be a problem.
