hey, i use a b.custom ( i think 08 model) but, its kinda hard to do presses at first, but as you practice with it more, you get better with it; i guess that goes with any other board too.. but once you press with this, then when you get a softer board, it'll seem a bit easier

i have a bullet right now...but im not sure of the flex, it was hard for me to press it so i think it was pretty stiff but i also think it was pretty heavy. the bullet is a 06 i believe and i looked on burtons site and the flex of the 2010 is actually soft...so will the custom flex more than the bullet 06?

Dude if you can't press a bullit, give up. It's not the board, it's you. Get some park schooling, the bullit is a soft beginner board. If you are still having trouble with the B than keep it for a bit because I don't think you are ready to upgrade. If you are though, you need a park noodle, not a custom

"With a fairly stiff flex, wax-lusting sintered base, lightweight core, and carbon/fiberglass laminates, the Custom X is designed to be ridden hard."
