I ride about 50% park and 50% rest of the mountain. My choices are
  • 155cm Machete
  • 158cm Machete
  • 155cm Buckwild
  • 157cm Buckwild

I'm coming from a 153cm Rome Artifact 1985 and I wanted to get more input before I pull the trigger

if you like the park go with the 155 machete, if you like to charge down the hill go with the 158 machete.

don't know anything about the buckwild though

2013 Ride Snowboard Size Chart | evo

According to the Ride sizing chart, I'm just out of the weight range for the 155cm Machete

Should I be worried?

triumph.man 12-05-2013 01:43 PM

you'll be fine

Does anyone have any thoughts on the Buckwild?

Ok so 155cm for both

Will the Machete be wide enough for my boots? Apparently it runs narrow at 247mm waist width with the Buckwild being 252mm

size charts are basically BS. get the machete it will better at both things, the only things the buck wild is slightly better at is carving, halfpipe, and huge ass jumps (like pro size 60 ft jumps).

So you don't think I need to play it safe and get the 155cm Buckwild which has 5 more mm waist width and +15 more pound maximum on size chart?

All Mountain Freestyle
I'm in the Northeast so mountains like Killington, VT.
I do rails and medium sized kickers mostly. Then just rest of the mountain so normal black diamonds that are usually groomed so no powder.

155 width.

What's your boot size? (Sorry if I missed it.)
Machete according to this post^
Buck wild has a different profile that is geared more towards park.
