I am trying to decide between this board, the Custom flying v, and the Gnu Danny Kass C2BTX. Currently riding a friends 2010 157 flying V and loving it . I am 5'8", about 170 and I think this size is a little large - was thinking about the 152ish range. Looked at the Kass and it looks good, just not sure about the flex - may be too stiff ( I do realize that the current burton 157 I am riding is way broken in, so it is probably softer than it started off being). I just learned butters and am getting used to park and pipe riding too, so I don't want to struggle when it comes to that stuff. I know all 3 choices are comparable, but which has the best flex for all over riding?

First all three boards are great. The custom flying v is not that broken in unless it has been ridden 100+ days. That is how burton boards are.
The length is based on your weight and I would recommend riding the 155. I'm 6' and weigh 170 and ride a 155 almost every day.
The easy livin is a great board, You will be stoked on it.

The Burton Easy Livin is the brain child of Danny Davis. This years board is the Grandson of the Un..Inc (one of the best boards Burton ever made). Danny has put his spin on the Un..Inc to create what you see today.
Flying-V rocker/camber, to give the rider the best of both worlds from camber and rocker. Burton added frostbite under under the bindings to give the rider a bit more control when on edge. They have also added Lighting bolts, which are carbon stringers that run from the end of the channel to the contact points, that give you crazy olli power.
The graphics are by Ralph Steadman. That is enough reason for you to buy this board. Harness the power of both Ralph and Danny and slay the mountain.

Recently made the switch to reverse camber, and I'm pretty stoked on it...but miss some camber features. One aspect of reverse camber that I like, is that when I overrotate spins on tables, the landing is super forgiving and I can usually ride it out. How will flying v handle overrotated spins? Will the reverse camber part of the board allow/help me to ride it out...or will I catch the camber portion of the edge?

the flying v rides most of the time like a rockered board but when you really get on it it rides more like a traditional camber board it is still forgiving on spins but it will allow you to pull off some over rotated spins with out washing. the only thing that i found that took some getting used to is that the board is pretty responsive when free riding in compareason to a rockered board and can hook up unexpectedly if you are not paying attention to what you are doing.

This is a killer snowboard. Except for you crazy powder hounds this board is one of the best boards you can buy. It basically has every piece of tech Burton has this year in it. Its super light, great mid flex for everything park and their hybrid "Flying V" rocker shape. I really prefer this shape over a traditional rocker and this board neither folds in half on me nor is super washy like the other rockers I have tried. I am 5ft9in tall 175 whopping pounds and ride the 55 all around the mountain. I have taken this thing out of bounds into the deep abyss of Utah powder but also use it 70% of the time for park slaying. That's the beauty with the Channel system...2 screws, slide your stance back, and you have a pow board all while your friends are still strapping in.
I rode these with Cartel ESTs which overall was a very pleasurable experience. I would recommend this board to anyone who...well...anyone.
I am debating between the easy livin fv and the Whammy bar... any suggestions??
i will basically be riding park and pow this year so i was debating between these two

I hate whammy went through 3 of them. Every new one i received broke on the first time i used it. It was way to soft and washed out a lot. Just got the easy living and i'm lovin it. super fun and a great board to step ya game up, ya heard. f#$% the whammy.
