Machete will handle a little smoother at speed and deliver more in the way of "pop" for ollies & jumps, CC will be a shade more forgiving due to the banana rocker and also outperforms in the carving department due to the magnetraction.

If you're interested in riding park but still want to ride the rest of the mountain sometimes, the Machete is probably a better bet. If you're mostly interested in cruising groomed runs and what-not, with occasional ventures in to the park, go with the CC.
Hi thanks for the quick reply, i'm keen on the C.C but can't find any available in my size lol, oh well i mite have to go for the machete, do you know of any simalar boards to the C.C?
