Custom 156 or 158, or custom X?
I want to get a burton custom or custom X. I am not sure which to choose. I also am unsure of the size I should get. I am 6 foot and weigh 180 lbs. I am torn between the 156 or the 158. I ride mostly groomed runs, a bit of freestyle, hit some jumps, and a small amount of rails. I am an intermediate rider. I currently have a 157 nitro, and the size seems right, but it was a bit short for powder runs. Is the 158 going to be too big to spin on? Is the custom X to stiff? I really don't know what to do. I like the look of the 156's alot better. The X is lighter, but has more of a setback than the custom, making switch more difficult. Also will Rome 390's with the converter plate bolt up to these boards okay? Does anyone know how these boards will compare flex wise to a MFM team nitro 157? Any help is appreciated.
