Just an FYI, but i'm not sure a Custom X is what you want for park/play...that's more of an all-mtn board designed to bomb away on steeps and really carve - it's pretty stiff. The Custom could certainly do what you're looking for but I wouldn't recommend the Custom X.
Not trying to tell you what to do, just providing some insight as an FYI.
Yeah I e-mailed the guy (the Custom X guy) I'm trying to get it cheaper than that! I only paid $500 for the T7 a couple years ago.
E-mailed a guy with a Custom camber and Cartel bindings. He wanted $250 and I offered him less. He said price wasn't negotiable since he paid 5 times that! I said that paying $1250 for a Custom with bindings might not have been the best move. Don't think I'm going to get that snowboard!
