Also, I don't think the custom or custom x have changed much since 2009, so you might be able to find a deal on an older model if you look around. All mountain boards are going to be stiff. I'm not sure, you do like doing presses and stuff but don't like park anymore? You're not going to be able to press a good all mountain board. If you don't like stiff, you're still into presses and stuff and like that, and want more of a freestyle board that will still get you around, I'd suggest a k2 parkstar, www or something like that. You could get one of those for around $200 new. Parkstar is really fun for presses and screwing around. I can butter the crap out of that board. There are all kinds of boards out there to fit all sorts of budgets. I've seen tons of great deals around lately looking for a board for my nephew and and a new board for myself.
-Also just saw a k2 fastplant 157 or 160 for $230 one site I've been searching lately, which might be something for you
