Default Burton Boards Custom vs. Operator

Well im looking into gettin a new board
im most likely gonna get one after next season but i wanna know which is better

the Burton Custom: which has been around for ever and well known for its all-in-one style

and the
Burton Operator: only out for one year and supposed to be great for everything from pipe, park, slight powder and groomers

if i get the new board next year
it'll probably come down to the custom and whatever Shaun's 2010 board is

i cant speak for the operator, but i bought a custom last season as a treat to myself and i LOVE it. it does everything my body asks it to do and is overall just a great board. a lot of people here don't like burton, for really no reason at all, but i love their products and you cant go wrong.

I think the operator has a teensy waist width. (240ish)

i got a custom the beginning of this season...didnt really feel anything exceptional...
but on my first trip out to colorado...ah my god...it was the first time i feel i love my board!
i do mostly freeride and custom is great for the kind of riding i do.

ive been on the 2008 white and a 09 custom for a couple of runs, i would take the white/operator easily. they are really close though.

the operator is the shaun white, which has varied much in the past years so if you get on a recent shaun white model you can see how the operator will feel.. i will tell you though that the board is not that wide.

thanks to all of you if there's anything else anyone wants to say im always open
looks like im prolly gonna get the 2010 shaun whtie board

and i don't care about waist as long as it isn't too big
im really skinny but boots size might become an issue but not for 2 seasons i guess
im aboutsize 9-10 boot rite now
