Default Im Torn!!!!

I was inches away from clicking on the buy button for a new Burton CustomX 160, and for some strange reason something in the back of my head said check ebay. I did and I didnt find anything special, except for a Never Summer 161 special edition. for a cheap price over half off... Im SO TORN, Ive ridden a NS titan, but Ive heard nothing but great things about the Custom X. After the exstensive research Ive done over that past month in search of my ride this season, I narrowed it down to these two boards. WHICH DO I BUY!!!!!! IM TORN

Sssshhhh! Back under your rock! But seriously, having had a few bad experiences with Burton, it's going to take alot to have me trusting their products again.

i've never had a bad experience with burton honestly. i still rock their bindings because i've gotten amazing deals on sac. honestly, i'll prolly never own another burton board because there are so many other great companies out there with products i want to try. arbor, never summer and atomic are on my wish list of boards right now.

Hm....that is a close call. IMO Burton still makes nice boards, but so does NS. What condition is it on Ebay? New? Is it a reliable seller? If it is new from a good seller I would probably stick with the NS because since they are so close in performance why not get a bargain??

I feel like Boarderaholic...had too many bad experiences with Burton that I can't bring myself to buy it. Never used NS equipment but have only heard good things. I'd go NS myself
