2014 Burton Custom Flying V
 
The Custom Flying V tech is staying the same from 2013, but Burton is adding 45 degree Carbon Highlights! Carbon Highlights optimizes each layer of the fiberglass matrix and adds a full tip-to-tail carbon layer to reduce weight and fine tune torsional feel to achieve different ride characteristics, and The 45 fiber angle provides a more aggressive ride.

The hybrid camber and rocker is amazing try it out if you havent yet

Are you sure about that 45 degree carbon highlights? I know they have that on the 2013 Custom X and on the Flying V boards it was 60 degrees so that it had a bit more flex.

That's what Burton Representatives told me.

So I'm pretty sure.

Just went through next years catalog. Yeah you are correct. The Antler has the 60 degree but the Flying V Custom has the 45 degree. If they made it stiff I might want to look into that as my back up for better conditions. Have it side by side with my CX

Yeah you talking about the Arbor CX

Has the 2014 catalog been published online anywhere yet?

Nah. By "CX" I mean Burton Custom X. Would be nice to have a stiffer Flying V to have to go with it for those occasional days when snow conditions are very good over here on the Ice coast

Oh man.. My personal opinion only of course...

Burton did such a great design for 2012-2013. I'm not sure I care for any of the 2013-2014 designs. The Custom and Custom-X do not look good from the catalog.

Good thing, i'm not in the market for any new boards next year.

I like the Custom's graphics. Dont like the Custom X's graphics though. Happy I picked up the 2013 Custom X off eBay for $400 brand new
