I currently have the Custom 20th Anniversary edition and I plan on getting the Custom Twin at the end of season sale this year.

I enjoy the catch free feel of the purepop camber profile and now that I am spending more time in the park, I think the twin shape plus asym squeeze box will be beneficial to my progression plus the graphic is pretty slick if you ask me.

I just bought the 2017 custom twin purepop. 6/10 tip to tail and like a 8/10 torsional flex. This board is AGGRESSIVE!!! I rode the 14/15 process off axis pure pop and the 14/15 custom marilyn purepop. Neither felt that aggressive.

i'd have to get this 2017 custom twin on a table next to those other boards. But it feels very traditional camber. it's been a few years and i'm more recently coming off a never summer type two, but it took me a full day to get used to riding it and feeling confident. i felt edges tugging all over the place on the first day. i do believe this aggressive stiff camber board is cleaning up any laziness I either always had or developed from riding the type two.

This board can BOMB though. Bust through everything and SUPER stable at speed. I wait for the snow to be a bit softer before I get back to spinning off every little side hit like i would on the ultra catch free type two.

Also the thing that I really liked about the very camber dominant board is that it doesn't necessarily have more edge hold as some claim. But it is much more predictable on ice. If I loose some grip, it seems to be spread out evenly across the sidecut. But my never summer it i could slip out on different parts of the sidecut, making it much more difficult to correct. Not sure if it's the stiffness of this board vs the camber.

Gear addict.

Two questions I have tried to find solutions on is:
- how is the flex custom vs twin?
- how is the edge hold custom vs twin?

Anyone with input on these two?

I have now rode and owned both. Rode/owned the 2015-2016 Custom Twin full camber (2017 model is now Purepop camber, pretty much Burton's version of camrock from my understanding).

I also owned the 2015-2016 regular Custom camber and now currently ride the 2017 model. Nothing really has changed between the 2.

Comparing the flex of the Custom and the Custom Twin, the Twin is a tad bit stiffer which as a result I feel is slightly more stable for jumps esp medium to larger ones. And slightly bit more stable for more aggressive carving, as well. But not by much. I love the regular Custom just as much, if not more and can still handle all kinds of jumps and super fun ripping around with. Perfect daily driver for what I love doing personally. Though with the Purepop camber profile now on the latest Custom Twin, it may not be as stable carving on compared to it's original traditional camber version, as it will have less effective edge.

As for edge hold, both have Burton's frostbite edges tech. But really, if you keep your edges clean/sharp regularly, both will hold pretty solid. And I ride in the east coast where we ride hard pack/icy conditions on a regular basis.

Both boards are awesome. Custom Twin is slightly more park oriented, esp those who love to go big on jumps, ride transitions often etc. Whereas the regular Custom is a little more all-around. Can't go wrong with either. Still my personal fave and my most relied on deck that I've owned & ridden on, to date. Good luck.

Happy Shredding

The only difference I would worry about betweenbthe Twin and Standard is width and setback. The Dtandard is a proggressive width board, so it gets naturally wider and the 58 and ups are considered midwide. The Twin does not. The Standard is also setback a touch.

If you're looking for a quiver of one deck get the Standard. If you want something more for freestyle and plan on building a quiver soon, get the Twin.

Also at 84kg if you're riding some park a 163 is huge. If you're going one board quiver get the 160, if you build a quiver get the 58.

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

Great input. I had a really good offer on a custom twin 151, this years model. But since I already have the custom in 151 I was more looking into a 154 of the twin. Mostly because I find my 151 a bit short. Then reading more about the twin I got some input that the flex is around 7 whereas my custom I guess is more like 5. I like the flex of my custom and not that fond of going to a stiffer board. I continue with my custom until I have the chance to test the twin.
