Default Burton Flying-V 2010 (no custom)

Hello,

I'm looking for my first board for this winter, i'm a beginning snowboarder but had already a week in Mayerhoffen & 2 times indoor snow.

I found a Burton Flying-V 2010 (154cm) 2nd hand in a nice condition for 325 incl. Burton EST Cartell bindings (also 2010).

Is this still a good deal, & good board for all-mountain use? (powder, piste but maybe also some small jumps off piste).

And also: is there a difference between the Custom Flying-V and the Flying-V 2010 model? (because they didn't name it "Custom", only flying-V)

I hope you guys can help me and give me some advice!

This is the board that i mean:
2010 Burton Flying V Snowboard - YouTube

Thanks in advance!

M.

So the Flying-V & Custom Flying-V are the same?
Good deal for 325?

FLying V is one of about 4 different profiles that burton uses - it's a mix of rocker and camber, rocker in the middle, camber under your feet. It's a hybrid shape.

Other profiles are full camber and full rocker, and so on.

Each board that burton makes has a name, e.g. Burton Custom, and will have a profile such as camber or flying V. Flying V describes the shape of the board - it's not the name of the board.

Most boards that burton makes will only come in one profile, but the custom is made in both regular camber and in Flying V format.

Regular camber is more precise, holds better on ice/hardpack. Flying V turns a little easier but doesn't hold its edge as well on ice/hardpack.

Thanks!
That board from 2010 has no name, it's named: Burton Flying-V (2010) so maybe it's a special edition?

Yes I can see now that there was a specific flying V board from Burton in 2010.

Not sure about prices in your market but in north america unless that board includes nice bindings 325 is too high a price. It sold in North America for US$400 in 2010.

I have noticed that European prices on Burton boards are higher but that seems far to high for me.
