Default new camber board

Hi all

I need a new snowboard for next season, and there are good deals around at the moment.
Im looking for a new cambered board, with good grip and spring out of turns.
ride mostly groomers 70% 30% offpiste/powder in europe. the new board will at some point become my groomer board and ill get another for powder, so it does not have to bo awesome in powder.

Bindings Burton Cartel M
Boot Burton imperial size 44 (11us)

Boards i liked:
Burton Custom Camber 160
Burton Vapor 158

boards not liked
Volkl Cashew 162W flat rocker
Burton Mystery 158 v rocker


Im looking mostly at the burton custom camber 158, burton aftermath 158 and the volkl squad prime 158

any suggestions and or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance Jack

Are you Cartel bindings EST? Is that the reason for mainly looking at Burton?

The Custom is a very good reliable camber board suitable for most conditions, it does most things well and I really enjoyed riding it with the EST bindings. Good groomer board for an intermediate.

If you're looking for a mainly groomer bomber, and you liked the Custom camber and Vapor, another option would be the Custom X.

Another board I've been interested in is the Volkl Coal XT, might be cheaper for you, for me it's a bit of a premium board as I'd have to get it shipped from Europe...

You might find that the Burton Juice Wagon could fit your needs, maybe it's one board that can do both things you are looking for. I bought one at the end of this season and so far have only had it out in icy crappy groomer conditions, which it handled very well. It's main purpose is powder, which I haven't ridden it in yet, but I presume that it will be good in powder since that's what it's mainly made for. With the juice wagon you might not find yourself needing a powder board unless you're in to mega deep stuff where perhaps the fish is the way to go.

I have a vapor as well, and if you liked the vapor on groomers I expect you would like the Juice Wagon too, I found them similar, and due to the camber, I liked them both better on hardpack/ice than flying V boards (of which I have two as well - something's gotta give I know).

Otherwise Custom X also a good choice, or vapor or regular custom camber, although these would lead you more so to two board setup with something else for powder. Burton process camber also a possibility, good price point but a tad softer.

I also bought a Juicewagon recently and have been quite surprised on how fun it is in various conditions. I had a chance to ride it in pretty much all conditions and it seems to really be a well rounded board.

Thanks for all the posts already.

hate not being able to go and test the boards myself.

I have ridden burton boards mainly because thats what the most shops have.

I have the Cartel reflex bindings (not to restrict myself)

Volkl Coal is look nice also. but still expensive in europe as well.

Had a look af the juice wagon also, does it spring a bit out of turns?

The good ride recommended the rossignol one for me, does it ride like camber?

I rode a burton blunt 156w for the last couple of years for everything, park to powder. it was okay, but lacked speed and grip for bombing.
