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.
A good honest review. Nice to see you thought it held an edge. I too have the 2008 custom. It would be interesting to know why you went for the antler instead of maybe a new custom flying-v though? I like the anter and something makes me want to just go out and buy it and I have no idea what that is??
