Yeah, the Customs are not bad at all. Pretty soft and lacking in the tech and adjustability departments, but pretty comfy and definitely light. Considerably lighter than my Boss 390s for sure.
In fact, got a 10-day old pair sitting in my trunk that I had planned to use as spare/back-up - unfortunately, I got the medium size, which is just a pain with my bulky Fargos...

Thanks..I ended up getting the diode and posting my impressions in the Burton Mystery thread under the boards section. Left it out of the "review" thread since it wasnt really related.

You are right about e bindings. At first I wanted the X base bindings but you can't find them in canada (if anyone hass a pair they want to sell send me a pm) but now I think I'm going to wait for next year's genesis.

Sassicaia Why would you recommend a stiff binding?

As far as the size 158 was the biggest they made. I am 185, but I need to loose some of my gut to bring that down to 180 or 175 ideally. I agree for deep POW days a longer board might be better, but on the other hand a shorter board naturally set back like this one gives a skate board feel with loose trucks and is great for POW tree runs. Its a good all around board, but likely there are times it wouldnt be ideal.

Lamps Consider diodes or recent c60's for bindings, nice and stiff - the hinge rocks on the diodes

Any concerns the board is too small for you - weight range to 180, your earlier post said you weigh 185.

I'm thinking more in powder conditions than on groomed snow.

I weigh 185 too and have a 159 cambered board for most days but a 163 for powder and soft snow days.
