Fuck I know! You're killing me! I just don't want any of that fancy pants hybrid camber stuff... Maybe I can buy a Restricted custom and heat the thing up, put it in a press and make it cambered!
I probably shouldn't have pissed of this guy. $250 is pretty good for a nearly new Custom and bindings... Loads of brand new winter Mens snowboard gear FOR SALE ASAP - Calgary Sports Goods For Sale - Kijiji Calgary Canada.
Feel like e-mailing him and telling him he should sell it to me for the $150 I offered him?!? lol

Even the Custom X is going to feel like a wet noodle for me! I'm the guy around here that likes snowboards to be long, stiff, and cambered. That includes in the park! Custom X has a longer sidecut radius for the same length boards vs other burtons, and being stiffer it wouldn't feel like a wet noodle to me if I bought a shorter board than normal. Custom X 152 or 156 would be fun!
