I guess it depends on what type of flex the custom has. A custom x may not be a good choice for you if you want enough for playfulness and butters. My misunderstanding...I have a custom x, which is very stiff, but holds well on ice and groomers. But I also have a Forum hybrid deck, they call the doubledog, and have never had issues riding on groomers since packed snow is all I have where I live. To me, it's my all mountain board as well as park board. I have taken it out west in pow and it does well also. If you could demo it, it would be a better idea before you spend some jack. Just depends on your terrain and needs. Either way, you can't go wrong with a cambered board. If it suites you.
