All around performer

I purchased the burton custom 156 and have used it up at Mt.Hood on the rail parks and in the powder. It performs excellent in both areas and is very forgiving when landing, which makes it easy when not sticking a spin or jump perfect due to the edging on the v-rocker. For my size and weight 5'9 175lbs I could have gone with a 158 but opted for the 156 (unless you plan on only doing backcountry then I would get longer board) for both park and ungroomed trails you cant go wrong with the shorter size! The binding system is easy to use and you can dial in your stance fast and easy.love it!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

Purchased this "deck" last month for a long weekend trip to Big Mountain in Whitefish, Montana, and it did not disappoint. (And Altrec had the size 156 on sale, to boot!) The Burton Custom is one of their classic boards, and the Flying V combines both rocker and camber - a hybrid board of sorts - which gives you the best ride possible. The Custom Flying V has nice pop and good grip control if you happen to catch a hard, icy edge, thanks to the extended frostbite edges. An all-around mountain performer from Burton that will serve you well in the park.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance
More of a freestyle board than all-mountain

Fun for butters and jibbing/ tricks/ small jumps; better than last year's straight up V rocker in terms of stability. As with most rocker designs it is a little unstable flat-based and chattery at high speeds which takes a bit of getting used to. Still, a good choice if you like a medium-flex fun board and do not intend to barrel down the mountain at full bore all day.

This board is insane! First off, I'd like to say I have been riding an Arbor A-Frame 158 for about 5 seasons. Arbors are soooo much more stiff compared to the Custom. I took the Custom 158 out in some POW and it feels like you're floating on air. Very responsive and crazy snap! I love how I can bust manuals with ease, and butter around on the park. I would recommend this board for anyone, weather you're ripping it up in some POW, or just playing around on the grooms. I really don't have anything negative to say about the Custom Flying V Rocker. You get the best of both worlds with the crazy camber!
