LOL you should stop giving people advice, you dont know what you are talking about.
The Custom V is directional twin (d-shape, twin flex). The T-Rice is true twin through-and-through.

The Custom is about medium flex. The T-rice is pretty solidly a medium-firm.

The T-rice has considerably better pop than the Custom.

The Custom rides loose as fuck thanks to an exaggerated "V" rocker. The T-rice is much more stable and doesn't feel like you're "balancing on a fruit bowl" (to quote BA). There is no comparison between these boards in this department.

The T-rice rides damper than the Custom and has better edgehold; I don't know what Burton's doing with Frostbite but honestly it's barely noticeable compared to Mervin's MTX or Arbor's Griptech.


If you've ridden these two boards and still think they're the "same tech" then you should be automatically disqualified from talking about snowboards to anyone, anywhere, ever.

You have no fucking clue on this planet what the fuck you're talking about.

You should never discuss anything board related with another human on this planet.

You clearly haven't ridden both, or aren't good enough to be able to tell the difference i.e. mtx arguable the grippiest edge tech and frost bite without question the worst/least usable/noticable edge tech

It's less about the board and more about the operator. You'll be great on either.

I own both actually and can't say for sure that one is better than the other.magne is definitely noticeable on turns, as in, you can feel it grinding a trench.....but whether one holds a better edge on ice than the other, then no, I have not noticed a difference. I base my observations on traversing icy no fall zones in the alpine (backcountry).
If you have hard data, please link me by all means.

thats literally what i was gonna say, no one here is a pro, ride the god damn board, neither board will make you better, if you think so, then you suck. if you need a top of the line board to make you "better" then you suck.

im done with this thread. its pissing me off

Yeah cause 2 half millimeter bumps at each foot is the same as the much more aggressive 5 very noticable bumps of Magne.

C2 has less rocker between the feet than FV. And FV adds more rocker outside the camber zones. Very, very different.

As stated already the Rice it true twin and the Custom is a directional twin.

The Custom has carbon sticks in it, the Rice has no carbon at all.

Custom has Squeezebox where the Rice is a more traditional core profile.

Go back to the shithole you live in that apparently breeds stupidity.

ummmmmm the shape is "flying v" which still has a "v" (rocker" component). is everyone on a fucking nitpicking mission today or what?

I will not be the only person to tell you that this rockered part is noticeably more pronounced/exaggerated than on some of Burton boards.
