haha, the days of price gouges are over only in so far as they have stock. Once thats gone, itll be business as usual. Which is a kind of problem for the custom x, i think they only have one size left, and its wide. Im size 9 feet (US) so aint really after that
As for sinking, my scope was really floaty, but yeah, it just wasnt enough. I wanted the malolo, and was almost going to buy it, but then realised what i was really after was a really solid freeride for bombing up and down walls, hauling ass, hitting drops and jumps and slashing powder
Yeah, i should add buttering and jibbing just to ask for the ultimate unpossible board, but i figure if i can just find a magic bullet thats solid with edges and transitions and kinda poppy, plus can bomb, and has a bit of float to it that can be set back enough for when i just want to muck about in the trees, then im toasty.
Basically, a board thats a bit more aggressive in powder than my scope (and board size may help here - the scopes 156 and im 175 so kind of at the top range for that), but isnt a designated powder deck, also can really ride a solid edge, can bomb down the mountain, can move edge to edge like its nothing, is bouncyish but wont get thrown around in chop, and can literally fly off a medium size kicker, then im covering some of the scopes weaker areas.
This is almost like a jeapordy question, i give you the answer and you tell me what board im thinking of
So far, aside the whole extruded base, the quiver/FCG sounds almost spot on. Also,m the figment sounds like a beast, but might be a little out of my depth. The nice thing is all of these are at awesome price points right now too.
