With the new Custom Snowboard, Burton took it up a notch to make a freestyle legend even better.

My friend has a never used 2006 Custom. What would a fair price be to buy this board?
I would say around 250. You could get last years board about that price.
Well it was never ridden, but 4 years old. I'd negotiate around $150-$200. Granted its probably in perfect shape, but the tech in the industry has advanced a lot since '06. That probably sounds low to the seller though. I personally wouldn't go over $250.
I got the 166 as a warranty replacement for a new Burton Air that developed a crack in the top sheet. I noticed this board is buckling/concaving in the base under the bindings. I've always been a fan of Burton but these last 2 boards make me wonder. This board is ok in powder and the pipe but did not feel especially fast or impressive on the groomers - my buddy on his custom x was leaving me in the dust. If you have the bucks go for the custom x.
Super Fun Ride
This is a super fun board to ride. It is quick edge to edge for freeriding performance. It has a lively flex - soft enough to press and forgiving on off-axis landings, but with enough pop to have a good time. Nice graphics are a plus too.
Wow! I love it. It's real smooth, and it's flexible. I love the design and it gets a lot of looks. If ur lookin' for a nice sturdy board that's real light and is gonna last a few years on the rails and park, this is your board.
BEST BOARD EVER
I got this board for this year. The best way to sum it all up... I LOVE IT. I have ridden all kinds of boards - as in Nitro, Ride, K2, and more - and then I got this board. There's no other comparison to it. I can ride on the mountain and carve all over, and have ultimate control - and then turn around and head over to the park and absolutely own it. It's pretty much the all time best all-round board ever made. I wouldn't change it for anything. If you buy you WILL be pleased.
It rides mad dope in the powder. Pretty sick for terrain too.
This board is the Corvette of snowboards!! It's as fast as all get out and handles like a dream. It can handle anything. Response is amazing too on this board. It's totally worth it, plus the graphics are killer!
Last year I got the 167 for my powder board. That board was so awesome I went and got the 162 for my everyday board. Who says you can't have more than one board? The graphic this year are rad.
BEST BOARD EVER!!!!
You need this board. It wants you for all mountain domination. For 11 years now Burton has produced this monster board that everyone wants to ride. The directional twin shape is stellar for hitting it hard in the park and then taking it to the backcountry to throw down some 9's in the pow pow. There is no other reason for any other board. It could possibly handle a size 11 boots and if you have a larger one you can look at the Baron, which is a similar wide version of the Custom.
one of the best
If you like doing anything on the mountain, the Burton Custom is for you. It will kill in the park, pipe, powder, and groomers. This board is really fun to ride, really durable, and as a bonus, has nice graphics. The board has nice flex, not too soft, but not too stiff, just perfect, probably why it is one of the most sought after boards on the mountain. If you are looking to get a board that will kill season after season, get the custom, you will not regret it.
i LOVE this board.
Of all the boards I have to ride as the Burton rep- this is the one I can't live without for 06. I used to ride a custom back in the day- and took a break from it for a while. It's back and its BETTER than it ever has been. I can take this one board on trips and be set to ride pipe (even super pipe) park (yes, rails too) and powder if I'm so lucky to catch some. If you are looking for the best all around board- this is it. The Graphics are super sick to. LOVE IT LOVE IT
