works all over the mountain. in the backcountry i could hit everything and make the sharp turns i needed to. in the park i love it. im hitting 720s on my 158 which i couldnt do on my old board. and the flex is amazing. I would get this board any day. i use it all mountain all year. i was just doing some spring riding on bad snow and it wasn't all that bad.
grabbed the late season release of the custom wide ics last year through dogfunk. thing handles amazing and it came fast too, props to dogfunk
Best thing next to my wife
I purchased this board this season and have gotten roughly 20-plus days riding it so far and I have too many words for how awesome this board is. It has a great flex and being able to dial in my stance depending on what I'm riding, has my friends jealous as hell. It has certainly helped take my riding up a notch to the point where I am confident to start stomping jumps. I hate to put it up, if it wasn't for the fact that my wife would leave me, I'd probably sleep with it at night.
sweet ride on the whole mountain
I got this board for hitting jumps and riding backcountry powder, and it doesn't disappoint. it has a good even flex that makes landing on the hardpack and digging into turns in the deep a dream. I wear a sz 12 boot and have had no problem whatsoever with toe drag. I really love having so many options for setting your bindings. living in southern california, conditions change pretty quick, from riding man made icy groomers to our current 2-3 feet in the last 4 days, and being on a budget, I need a board that can do it all and do it conveniently. This board is it.
hey i stand about 6'11" and i need advice...
hey i stand about 6'11" and i need advice for a board. one that has banana technology and is good for both freestyle and a smooth ride.thanks--dave
Take a look at the Never Summers with their rocker & camber technology. I was able to demo a 163 and 166 Legacy a couple weeks ago in Telluride and was super impressed and ready to make the purchase once the wallet recovers.
All you Burton haters are so ridiculous... the reason not to buy is cuz you can get a Burton at Costco? come on.
Stop being so concerned with your image and what all the other park rats will think of you. If you had a bad experience with a Burton product, put that in your review.
If you're a Rome rep, then go write some more Rome reviews...
Custom lives up to hype
I rode this board all of last year and think it's the best resort board around. I spend the majority of my time in the backcountry (on a Voile splitboard) and I was looking for a playful deck to throw around in the park, off cornices, thru the powder, etc. I had been riding an Never Summer, but wanted something lighter and less of a tank. The Custom didn't disappoint.
I was skeptical about the ICS / EST thing at first, but once I got on it, I became a believer. The good thing is that you can ride it centered for jibbing around the resort/park, and then move the bindings back in an instant if you want to dip into the powder. And with this deck's slightly directional shape, it can do both really well.
I paired this ICS deck with the Cartel EST and the setup is ridiculously lightweight--lighter than my girlfriend's little 143.
My reading rainbow summation: So if you're looking for a fun board to throw around the resort and dip into some powder, get the Burton Custom ICS.
(man this is the cheesiest review ever. sorry)
Oh ... and something's fishy about the review by "slo246970". That guy did nothing but talk shit about Burton and hype up Rome boards... then you look at his profile and it's all Rome stuff and all 5 stars. The only crappy review was for this deck. hmm ... Rome rep or disgruntled Burton employee, perhaps? That's lame.
Buy Rome SDS
Burton is so corpo, last year you could buy a burton at Costco? Does that make you feel weird? IT should. If you like the Burton Custom then buy a Rome anthem, it is designed by Paul M. from Rome and oh wait, he also designed the custom, so get the honey from the bee and leave the shit to the flies.
