Well for one they have different profiles. The Custom flying V means Camber/Rocker hybrid and the joystick is pure rocker. I haven't riden the joystick but I bought a flying V last year and I'm selling it. It was great on days with somewhat fresh snow and easy on you while riding switch, but it was squirrelly while bombing and had a shit hold on hardpack and ice (and a rocker is going to also be those things but more). It was a fun board to ride when the conditions were right but in the long run didn't suit my riding style (aggressive dick).
