For high speed you can't beat camber and the custom is supposed to be decently stiff. It should pop like a 90's rocket! lol

Disclaimer: I ride the stiffer brother of the custom X... I ride it in pow, off-piste, etc.

Yeah you just have to put more weight on the tail to get the nose to come up. It's obviously not ideal for buttering but I'd rather compromise in that area and have high speed stability when my ass is on the line...

I wouldn't try buttering with the TRice HP. Sure it's rockered but it's pretty damn stiff.

How well does the Custom X float in pow Poutenan? Reg camber is definitely the best for pop and stability, but it always seems like it can be a struggle sometimes to keep it from nosediving.

Well I'm on a T7 which is stiffer than the Custom X with the same camber profile. I don't have a problem but if course I have to put a fair bit of weight on my back foot. Terje rides it and I'd say he's riding more powder than all of us probably put together! lol

You're right, I haven't ridden reg camber in so long I forgot you just have to make sure you have a big setback, which isn't required as much on the rocker shapes.

Nico rides the T7 too I believe. Riding powder is 90% rider, 10% board shape IMO. Setup is key. Rocker just makes it easier.

Thanks I've been saying this for years!

99% of the "big mountain" boards are fairly stiff, cambered boards. Might be tougher on your legs but I'm not up on the hill to take it easy.
