Default Burton Antler

Anyone had a ride on this yet? Really interested to know how well it holds that edge and how aggressive you can go. Burton say 'a playful Custom X'? Suppose they wouldn't lie eh!?

Super flexible board...not sure I'd be comparing to the Custom X.

Its a Custom X shape with a softer flex, so yes.... the Custom X does come up when comparing the board.

I definitely want to put some time on this this year.

OP, post this over on EasyLoungin you may get some better responses over there as there seems to be more industry people and people riding next years gear than SBF, and they may be able to answer whatever questions you have.

Meh. Screw the Antler. Get a Custom Twin.

I'll write what I think for sure. It was really hard to find any info on the web because nobody has one of these. I was talking to the guy at the shop about how I ride to see what he recommended. I've been riding Burton stuff for my last couple of boards so I thought I'd try another company, but when I brought up the Antler the guy seemed genuinely excited. Him and other guys in the shop got to demo one and they loved it.

I think it might be the perfect board for me. I find myself fooling around on the hill way more than I find myself on something epic and crazy steep these days. I mainly ride at Sunshine Village and Lake Louise in Banff, AB. There is lots of fun terrain to play around on, and always a park to hit if I feel like it.

The Custom X is a directional camber board, the Antler is closer to a twin with a flying-V wet noodle profile. I don't get how they're similar?
