I know a lot of people hate on Burton for various reasons. Over the last 20 years or so, I have had 4 or 5 of their boards, 5 or 6 sets of bindings, several boots, clothing. Never really been very disappointed with their stuff, or even had to deal with a warranty issue. Right now, I've got a custom x with triads, a set of cartels, and just got a new pair of hails. Only issues I can think of is the topsheet on the custom x is not that durable, the cap strap on my early model of triad est bindings always came loose and had to upgrade it to a better one, my cheap freestyle boots are starting to fall apart a little bit at about 7 years of age.
I really like the custom x, but probably not the best choice if you can only have one board. Definitely great to have 2 or more boards if possible. My other board right now is a K2 parkstar. Hoping to get a Never Summer Cobra if I find one on sale, which might be a pretty nice do-everything board also from the reviews I've read.

|Redline||On the rare occasion I have personally had an issue with Burton stuff it was taken care of right quick on their end. Same with everyone I know that has had an issue. Maybe you're just a dick while on the phone with the warranty dept, and they don't mind loosing your business bamf?|

|andrewdod||I blame the user :boom: like I said never had a lot of problems with my burton gear, and when I have they've fixed it no questions asked. I don't know how you could have so many bad experiences and not be beating the crap out of your gear.|

I definitely am for the rocker, and camber 2 board quiver if you ride icy conditions you might wanna look towards a custom, arbor also makes some very nice cambered boards as well.

to follow up on my earlier post, if you can swing two boards go for it. I totally agree with Lamps in that if you can own a camber custom and then one of the flying V boards, you would be really happy. Given the time of year it is now and especially once February hits, you could likely find some great deals on ebay where you could maybe pick up both slightly used for the retail cost of a 2014 board a few months ago. I bought my Antler literally at 50% off and could not even tell it had been used.
Demo days are def your friend too.
