Custom burton and its competitors: truth or myth?
It's just a few days I started reading websites and newsgroups, looking for an all mountain board, my first board, reliable and solid, to keep for the next few years, a board which i cant outgrow. A board allowing me to carve precisely and tightly, get fast and being stable at the same time, and also a board able to give me fantastic time off-piste in the powd. I am not interested in park, but from time to time I'd like my board to allow me there.
After reading a bit, I understood the voice is that Burton is overpriced and you dont need to spend so much money for the same quality.
I read a lot of reviews, but the only and only one board without any negative review is ....the Custom indeed. Always 5 star full judgment in any rating.
I was about to pull the trigger on Nitro Team/K2 Podium/K2 Turbodream, but at the end something made me think again...and the Custom name came up again...
So, It's really such a great board? I mean, so greater than others? Better materials? Better something? which are its most likely competitors? Is there any "objective" review you might suggest?
