Fuck I know! You're killing me! I just don't want any of that fancy pants hybrid camber stuff... Maybe I can buy a Restricted custom and heat the thing up, put it in a press and make it cambered!

I probably shouldn't have pissed of this guy. $250 is pretty good for a nearly new Custom and bindings... Loads of brand new winter Mens snowboard gear FOR SALE ASAP - Calgary Sports Goods For Sale - Kijiji Calgary Canada.

Feel like e-mailing him and telling him he should sell it to me for the $150 I offered him?!? lol

Even the Custom X is going to feel like a wet noodle for me! I'm the guy around here that likes snowboards to be long, stiff, and cambered. That includes in the park! Custom X has a longer sidecut radius for the same length boards vs other burtons, and being stiffer it wouldn't feel like a wet noodle to me if I bought a shorter board than normal. Custom X 152 or 156 would be fun!

I guess you wouldn't be interested in my 2010 custom x w/ 2011 cartels since you are lowballing an already cheap 250 for a custom.

Go for a Custom Flying V. You will NOT be disappointed. I pretty much ride a twinned out smaller version of that, and that thing can do anything you need, and it does come in twin if you need that. Does well in park and pow. The board just lets you go nuts, and tbh, you seem like the person who LOVES to go nuts.

Yeah I guess I am cheap, I just figured nobody ever posts their real price on Kijiji, you're always supposed to lowball! $250 really is a good price for a nearly new Custom with bindings.

You in Alberta? Got any pics? How much do you want?

If you want stiff and cambered you need a Bataleon. TBT makes it so fucking stiff but also playful. Not sure, but riot might be it. Or it might be too stiff?

Think I may have found the board for me!

New PRIOR AMF 162 for sale $349 - Alberta Sports Goods For Sale - Kijiji Alberta Canada.

Although I was hoping for a shorter board then that. Maybe just have to buy it and cut the tips off.

The nice thing about the priors is they still have a longer sidecut radius on their freestyle boards. Same sidecut as a Custom X, but twin geometry and a lifted tip profile.
