Default Am I ready for the Custom X?

Hey guys, need some advice on a new board.

A bit about my riding background, I've been boarding for about 2 years. I can handle blacks diamonds with no problems. I usually do quick pivot turns when i ride, not much "carving" in the true sense of the word. I prefer groomed runs, hardly any park riding. My current board is 2011 Burton Blunt V rocker with custom bindings.

I can get a pretty good deal on 2015 Burton Custom X with Cartels Est and I am looking to pull the trigger on it to see if I can take my riding to the next level.

Do you guys think I am ready for it? I haven't ridden a stiff camber stick before.

Should I just yolo and grab the CX?

You only yolo once brah.


Get it. If thats the type of riding you want to do. Know it will probably steepen your progression curve, but why the hell not?

I want one too but I have to many quivers, not. Get it and tell me how you like it, I was riding my ripsaw the other day and save myself a few times charging and was like I wonder if the custom x would have buckled me there at that speed...hummm

+1.
If you are ready, you'll enjoy from moment one.
If you're not yet, it'll teach you.

I like to ride "challenging" boards. They force you to concentrate on n improve your technique.
