Default 2013 Burton Custom anyone??????

Hi all,
I am guessing I may get some varying views on this board.....
My situation is, I have ridden lots of different boards, predominantly freeride oriented of the stiffer nature, however am now looking for an all round do anything board....
I know some of you will say, aaah one board can't do all, but alas, I am looking for a good close contender for this category.....
I have tried reverse camber, but suspect my riding style is favouring trad camber ..... but can be educated given an opportunity to learn something new.....
I ride in Europe (France) and have done a few trips to Japan recently also.....
So, I don't need a magne-traction gripping ice machine.....
And ultimately, want to go something softer, makes for more fun, and easier riding, not that I don't like charging, however am swayed toward the custom for a good all-round option.......
Normally have ridden btw 160-165cm lengths, but would like to go a bit shorter .... Ht 190cm Wt 85kg Boot US13
Any worthy thoughts?????????
Thanks

You could try a rocker-camber-rocker profile (which is my fav). Rides a lot like camber but is more playful and has better float. Brands that use this profile are Ride, YES, Signal and a few others I can't really think of right now. The Custom is a very solid board but your descriptions sounds like you could use a bit more playfulness.

consider custom flying V, it's a good all rounder with the hybrid shape to make things a little more playful

Check out the Salomon Man's Board. Traditional camber to just outside the inserts, little reverse at the tips. Tons of snap. Bamboo core. Really sick deck! (Bode's board)

I like that board, but I do not think it fits the OP's profile - he is looking for something softer and the Man's board is really a stiffer charging stick.

Thought about Never Summer? I'm in the same boat as you and I was recommended the Evo and the Proto CT. Those are there more freestyle oriented boards, but I've heard they still do a really nice job holding an edge for carving

I would look at the custom flying v and the sherlock. They are both very similar, and 5's on the feeling scale.
