ya pretty much sums it up...I would offer caution on getting the cx though

the softer the flex the easier a board is to turn, but if itís too soft you wonít feel stable turning at high speeds.

Dude at 6'4 250lbs you would probably find that custom x felt the same to you as the custom feels to many of those who have posted on this topic. Im a big ass guy as well and i ride a berzerker, i find it really responsive and at the same time when i fuck up its flexy enough that i dont eat shit, yet my mate who is a good 80lbs lighter finds it waaay too stiff.

If you want the x get it, or take some advice from people who are a similar weight to you, that way you get a true indication of what it will feel like.

my names's Petey and i have gigantic balls
