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 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.
