I have owned the Custom and the CustomX. The X does not have more pop unless you are a rider at the top of your game that can actually load that stiff beast and pop it. You will get better ollies and spins of your edges on the mid flexing Custom.

The NAS is going to be stiffer than than the Custom. It's a 7 on the Capita Scale which is the same as their freeride boards.

The DOA would be more similar to the Custom. It also has lifted contact points which might make it easier for you to ride like this Ryan fellow...

I would go Custom over NAS for a more playful feel.

These are great replies- thank you! I don't actually expect to ride like that bad ass Ryan- I just like the idea of having a board that is capable of it. A mid flex board might be more up my alley as I am never going to push the boundaries of my skills (or be good enough too haha) to need a stiff hyper aggressive board. I appreciate the advice everyone! I wish I could get some first hand knowledge from folks who have ridden the NAS.

Buy it from Dogfunk, if its not a good fit for you their return policy will allow you to send it back for a full refund. And then you can buy something else from them. You might want to check out something like the Rome Reverb. Similar but more fun and probably something that will be poppier for you and more fun on jumps and in the pipe. Evo has the Reverb on sale for $200.
