How fast is the custom?

Ok so some of you may know i cant decide from the custom X and the custom. But the more i think about it the custom x maybe more board then i need. So i was thinking of just going down to the custom. Now i was wondering if the Custom is just as fast as the X. My solomon prospect now is pretty fast. I want a board where i have to slow down when im going too fast. I DO NOT want a board where i feel like im going 10mph and im just kinda chillin and there is no excitement too it. Now my cousin has an older custom and he says it depends on how you wax it. I wanted your guys opinions though. So if i do a nice fast wax, it will go fast?

thanks

It's only as fast as you make it, if you know what you're doing.

the Custom and the Custom X both have the same base - so top speed should be similar. the X is just a bit lighter and a bit stiffer - the added stiffness could make the X slightly faster depending on how you ride.

sweet. I think im going to get the custom rather then the x then. it seems like the x is just as good. the bad thing i see in it is that it doesn't have stainless steal edges but ill live i guess.

My housemate has a Custom. It just sits on the wall in the hallway. I wouldn't call that fast at all. Kind of slug-like, actually. My housemate, he however, is a fast rider.

Boards arn't fast. Riders are.

that's like saying, "guns don't kill people, people kill people" in response to the question "which has better takedown power, a 9mm or a 40?"
