Makes sense. I judged it a little hard on groomers where I like my other boards with larger radii, but this is something I’ve known about most Burtons (for my taste)

I recall the day when the XX first clicked - it was kind of slushy so things had more “give,” and it was a ripping rally car.

If I only could have one board it would be the CA.  Board can do everything.  Love it!

Anyone spend time on a 3D Kilroy? Looking for daily driver that rides everything for an old guy that used to lap the park. Might just end up with another Custom camber.

I picked up a Skeleton Key two seasons ago, when it first came out they said to downsize, and the nose was too soft for my taste. Ended up riding my old Custom Twin Asym more. Is Burton doing any late release Customs or anything?

Thx!

I loved the old 3D Kilroy but it may be too soft for you. The new one hasn’t been on snow yet. Seems the new one only has 3D in the tip.

Is Analog still a thing?

The current directional 3D is pretty sick. The jump in stiffness from 150 to 155 is pretty big. I rode them back to back last winter and the 150 was a complete noodle and the 155 felt more like the flex of a 54 Custom. The 155 3D/slush puppy is way more stout than a 54 SK. 

Rumored to be a few analog hardgoods 22/23.

How stiff is Custom X for weight in the middle of range? I wonder if it’s a potential daily driver for me.

For comparison, people were calling the old Korua Stealth a plank but it’s just a good stiff board for me. I have and like, among others, Working Stiff, Flight Attendant X split, Mystery Landlord, Furberg Freeride….

I can’t imagine it would be too stiff for you at all. If I had to put money on it, I’d actually think you’d find it mellower than some of the other boards you have.

Was watching something recently on the modern custom/x lineage - it explained it’s not that much stiffer than a custom anymore, and that it’s more about using high-end materials and making it more lively and snappy. In the past it was essentially a stiffer option to the custom, but now it’s just a “higher performance” option.

Thanks @Spenser!

this is very enabling 😂

I realized I have buncha powder boards and unfortunately that’s not what I ride most of the time in PNW resorts. so the custom x is maybe filling a gap in the quiver for a daily do anything always keep in the box board.

Dave Downing talked about this in Burton’s clinic videos this year.

I think that’s what it was, the house videos have been popping up in my feed lately

 Burton doesn’t make anything stiff. You can’t sell the most boards, and most importantly you can’t sell Custom X decks to rich douche bags who ride 5-8 days a year and have them like the deck if it’s stiff….

When you sell as many decks as the big B, you make them soft/softish so pretty much anyone can hop on one and have a good day.

Looking for some feedback.  I have a B Panhandler as my primary pow board.  Which gets maybe/luckily 3 days a year on it.  Looking for a new pow board/shape, but cant seem to find any B boards that are different enough to (justify) buy. Really considering the Pow Wrench, but not seeing much diff.  I like the flat to rocker for pow.  Had a fish before, loved it in pow, hated it on the groomers back to base.
