I had the same experience on a 2011 Custom FV, sold it and just rode my DH2 for the rest of the season. Then switched to a 2012 Custom restricted with camber humps. It feels more stable on steeps and bumps. I went back to a custom because I like the flex on it.

zeeden Someone in another post asked me what I thought about the flying V. I thought I would share my thoughts.

It is pretty good on groomers and powder. Going over bumps on ungroomed snow its not as stable compared to my T.Rice. its not as damp when hitting kickers.

I feel safer riding my T.Rice on hard pack and Ice. At the end of the day, I feel that there are better boards at that price point.

rider89 I rode the 2012 Custom Flying V all last season, and I will probably ride it again this season. I found it to be fantastic as a hybrid board. Initially it felt different for me but the more i got used to it the more fun I was having and I ended up really enjoying it, and progressing my riding quite a bit.

I'm not much of a review writer, so if you have any specific questions about the board just send me a message.

zeeden I have both the Flying V and the 2012 T. Rice Art of Flight edition. I have yet to ride the Flying V. So far, the Rice I feel is a lil bit sluggish during tree runs but maybe it was because of the bindings I had on . It charges hard, damp when landing jumps and stable at high speeds.

When the season starts here in Ontario I lend you my thoughts. I had a 2010 Custom V Rocker before I got the Flying V. The V Rocker was an all around board but unstable which I didn't mind.
