Default Alternative to Burton snowboard

Hi,

I am looking for a board.
Custom-X look like good product for me, 180cm, 90kg, freeride, 8 years of
practice.
Some people talked to me there is very good alternative to Burton
costless.

Does somebody have test Burton model and similare product in another
brand ?


Thanks
Sylvain

I dont compare. My first board was a Burton supermodel
I thought it sucked. I went to winterstick (original)
and then to Donek.

IMHO Burton boards are overpriced and generally overrated.
As an indication, I was unable to offload a very lightly
used Fish for even $190. I got it on a whim at the Burton
spring sale a few years ago and just dont get many chances
to use it in very deep powder and for anythign less than 2'
I prefer my Donek as it rides the chop better.
