Default From Burton TWC Standard to Custom?

I currently use the lowest end Burton setup. TWC Standard, Freeseyle bindings and Invader boots. I'm looking to upgrade everything. I'm quite set on buying the Ion boots. I'm having trouble deciding between the Cartels, Malavita and Genesis. With the board though, is the Custom a good upgrade from the TWC standard? What would be some of the differences? Here in Eastern Canada we don't get a whole lot of powder so I want a nice cambered board. All just ride groomers and powder whenever there is heavy snowfall during the day. I also take the occasional jump. I don't jib or ever go to the park.

The custom is an excellent upgrade. The custom is a team favorite for burton. It will be a huge difference in feel.

The TWC is a rocker board and the custom is a camber, so the custom will edge better and have more natural pop. The TWC would float in powder more and feel more playful.

TWC is less likely to catch an edge than the custom.

If you want a bit more playfulness in your board and don't want to set your stance back when riding powder, you could go with the custom flying v. It's a hybrid design, so the better edge than the TWC, but not as good edge hold as the custom. But you wouldn't need to set your stance back in powder like you would with the custom.
