i've got a 2012 custom x 160 with cartel est bindings, or malavita est bindings. i don't think i'm quite ready for it and it might be a bit much board for me anyways (i weigh around 160). Bindings are Medium. Been on the board/binding setup twice this year, and only for a few runs each time. i'd probably be looking for somewhere around $400, shipping to canada might be a dealbreaker though, not sure how expensive that gets. let me know if you're interested, otherwise good luck!

So I picked up that 2012 Custom 156 I posted earlier with Custom bindings... Tried it for a couple laps today and HOLY SHIT WHERE'S MY EDGE HOLD?!? I don't know if the guy ever sharpened it!

I have to get a base weld/grind on the T7 so going to get a real good edge done on the new Custom at the same time and see if it improves.

On another note: A Virus Avalanche can actually be quite fun in the park!

I got buddy who rides a K2 174 deck. It's cambered, old, and beat to hell. I've seen him hit boxes and pull 180s with that thing. Rocks a set back forward stance and rides/lands switch no problem.

He is constantly telling me my board is too short and my back binding is pointing the wrong way....

^^^ Yeah it's funny, the more boards I ride the more they feel the same. Shouldn't it be the opposite?!?

So here's the Custom I picked up next to the old girl. She's 3 cm shorter and about 1 cm wider than the T7. Should be a fun little play board! I'm thinking about sawing off the tips to make it more blunted, we'll see...
