You do have a solid point, the custom x will be better at higher speeds and also for big jumps and hard snow (because of the pressure distribution edge) BUT the custom will be a lot more playful feeling when riding the park. This year burton freestyled out the custom to make a super solid park board out of it. The custom x went more towards the freeride side adding vaporskin tech to make it lighter... i like both

I agree, both board are great for slighty different riding styles.

All cool features the X adds like "Vapor Skin" aside, the X has a slightly straighter sidecut than the Custom. Combined with its increased stiffness, this makes the X more aggressive for higher speed riding.

Vapor Skin means they use a thinner, more lightweight topsheet on the board, making the board even lighter.

thicker is better so u can ride the pipe, park, and do jumps..
 
i guess that's why it's referred to as a freeride board.

Yah, the feelgood ES rocks the Vaporskin. It is basically the female Custom-X, and I absolultely love the graphics. I am trying to get my fiance to rock it this year. The Vaporskin (and probably some other goodies_ make that board light. In fact, the Baron ES feels almost as light as the vapor, no joke.
 
The Feelgood Es would absolutely rock for some freeriding, but it is a high-end all-mountain ripper. Like the Custom, the regular feelgood loses he Vaporskin, softens up, and has a deeper sidecut.

Yeah I'm stoked for her.  All in all I got her the 06 Push, 07 Burton Lexas, and 06 Burton Emeralds.  All brand new and one heck of a first setup.  She lucked out.  My first set up was a Morrow Source, Heelside Bindings, and Morrow boots.

the biggest difference between the two this year is that the custom is much more freestyle oriented i was lucky enough to demo the new custom last year and it is completely different partly to with the new negative core proflie it enable you to throw down some sick butters and play around more freely in the park than past years.  The custom x this year still has a positive core profile and it holds very good edge at high speeds and great for  freeriding but you wont have as much fun in the park as the custom. so in my humble opinion check out the custom if you like to hit the park every so often or check out the custom x if freeride is your thing.  Also if you can try to demo the custom before you ride it because it rides completely different than the previous years.

SO what do i do? i have been dying for the custom X. Especially the 06.
It's pretty much my dream board. I ride a lot of back country, so to say. UT (parkcity, canyons, brighton, brianhead, snowbird)
but in cali i ride N.Star, Boreal, Sugar. I love the big stuff, but there is always room for the park(loving the pipe).
 I had an Atomic, now i am riding an Arbor Mystic and i am ready for a change. I was feeling the X!, but what do i do now?
