What do you like to do freestyling? If you are just jibbing and doing rails you MAY have wanted the 157, but if you are more into jumps and pipe the 161 should be fine.

i would say more jibs, but im into jumps and stuff too. im just worried that its gonna be harder to get tech on the jibs, and to pull 270s and stuff out, but i guess ill just have to get used to it, or maybe send it back. cant decide yet.

thanks

hey Snowolf, I just ordered an 08' Machine with 390's. Thats good to hear that you liked it, I was hoping its gonna be way lighter than my old wide K2 and hopefully a lot softer. I wanted something that i can spin no problem and butter pretty much effortlessly.
