I think most people buy based on graphics or popularity haha.

I didn't recommend one for him because I'm sure he'd be happy with either unless like you alluded to, he rides the boards the way they were intended to.

I just gave what I'd personally choose depending on how and where I would ride.

I have yet to ride the 2012 custom flying-v.

I used my retired 2010 Custom V-rocker last time I was out west and it was adequate.


Thanks
I suggest trying out the Custom flying-V on hardpack and see how you like it. If it sucks, and conditions in Whistler are the same, then go with the T-rice. If it's powder, figure out which one has better float and take that one with you.

Yes Nip is a total douche. I didn't want to call him out as I wanted to keep things civil. He obviously hasn't been snowboarding long enough to think that these two boards are similar.

I went from camber to rocker and then to hybrid. I like the rocker for its playfulness. Some days I like me some butter and some days I just like to charge. So that's why i asked this question because my v-rocker was a totally different feel compared to the t. rice. I was curious to know what changed on the flying v.

Maybe I wasn't clear, but there are other reasons why I asked the original question.

1. Its hard to take two boards and two bindings with me on this trip due to limited cargo space in the van. I want to pack light as possible. I'll be going with 4 others. The wife will think Its unnecessary to bring 2 sets.

2. I'm leaving to whistler Xmas day . Out here on the ice coast we probably won't get any massive pow dumps before we head for me to test both boards on Powder. Its already safe to assume which board handles well on ice. I probably won't even be able to get out to local hill before xmas.

Last year, the season started on December 19th here too!

If consensus was that both boards rode almost similar to each other, then I could sell the flying v and buy a true rocker for those days that I just want to mess around. But since there isn't a common answer I guess I'll have to figure out a way to bring both with me and find out.

well, how about me then? I would put them in the same category too, since they are both all mountain hybrid rocker boards.

Two suggestions:
1) an extra board won't take up much space in the board bag if you don't bring bindings with it. You get the added hassle of switching bindings over at night, but then you'd have both boards.
2) Since it sounds like you're stoked on the Trice, I would say sell the custom fv and pick up something with a bigger difference. I'd say grab a powder board but since you live on the east coast maybe you wouldn't want that. Or grab a park/dork board (or like you said, a full rocker board) and have the trice for all mountain.

for the powder board idea, you could save it for your annual whistler trips or for the odd time you got a dump on the EC. You could go for a fullon pow board (burton fish) or something that is more like a regular board but floats amazing (capita charlie slasher, burton barracuda, etc)

Sorry, a bit out of character for me these days. He pushed me off the edge after ragging on Dave about blogging. Not that his big ass needs my help. Just that I have lots of gay love for that fatty and his faded turd hoody.

Bring two boards and only one setof bindings. Stack the boards they'll both fit easily enough in one board bag I do it all the time. Boom problem solved!
