I thought Burton auto pilot technology was a thing?

If you look at any company out there, its common for one to get large and start mass producing cheaper products, which save them money. Why does burton sell a 1500 board?
a couple things:
- NS's look and feel quite a bit different than they did years ago. I"m guessing BA and maybe 10 others on this forum probably had one.- everyone else jumped on the bandwagon when they went rockered. They're lighter now, much less burly, and rockered --- First few year NS's were like riding a cambered door down a hill and were super damp(I had a revolver way back) I had an evo a few years ago when I lived in CO and it was neither more nor less durable than the current burton stuff. But If anything, the old NS decks were more burly/solid/damp.

- NS is no longer this "local, grassroots" company that was pretty much a regional CO local brand the first few years. People need to get off this shit. NS is international now.. On top of that go to any resort in colorado and the hill is literally overrun with NS boards and front rangers with giants sticker all over their trucks.

- I own a bunch of decks from all brands so I have ZERO bias but there is no reason on this planet to blindly and wildly throw burton under the bus and act like the current NS deck could survive a volcanic eruption.

- If you want a truly well made, LOCAL, non-corporate snowboard do yourself a favor and get a Venture or Smokin'.. You don't have to be an engineer to feel the solid build of both these brands which will make the current NS product feel like a kids toy.

I have a six year old Burton board that still rides happily in most terrain and gradients.
See, user error.

I'm not saying it IS, just that it COULD be.

On the original post- the custom is a well proven good example of an all round board- get the camber for more stability and I believe riding camber will help your overall progression in the long run.

The rome mod is a great board but its pretty stiff and aimed more at high performance, I'd wait a while for taking that step

I keep upgrading because i was craving boards that could handle faster speeds. The custom chartered at higher speeds which the ns does not..
