the Custom X devours everything in its path. It's beefy enough to charge through crud with no issues, has a super fast base so you can point and shoot and beat even the most aggro skiier down a straitline, and it's got a sidecut that can be both aggressive and cruizy. the binding system, once you get it dialed is sick. you can change it up at a moment's notice if you need to alter your stance during the day, and as long as you don't mind the Burton interface, you won't be disappointed. In retrospect i wish i had not gotten the wide because I wear an 11 size boot and would probably get more pop of the slightly narrower lighter board, but on the deepest days i don't hesitate to take out "Jaws". If you're a big dude, you want this stick for charging pretty much every kind of terrain. Mueller rides it a lot of the time, so it's probably good enough for you.
