Default 2011 Ride Machete info???

im looking for some feedback on the ride machete, ive heard that the 2010 model was a great all around board for anything from park to high speeds....ive got a 152 capita indoor FK ill play with but this year i want alittle longer like 155 in something for the rest of the mtn, but still has good flex & pop and aint chattery at high speeds...this board seemed a choice, other then then my only other choice so far is the 2011 NS SL-R

2011 Ride DH2 - Review - Ride Nation

check the fourth post. Apparently the only change is that it will have a bit more pop on the ends (new poprods), so it might be better just to pick up a 2010 if you can find one (which is admittedly pretty hard).

Edit: I realize the review is mainly about the DH2, but it does have info pertaining to the machete in it.

As SnoFox said the 2011 version of the Ride Machete is virtually identical to the 2010 model expect with poprods 1.0. The 2010 LE Machete is essentially the 2011 model as they added the poprods to it. What poprods do is instead of having carbon fiber run throughout the board they just run through the tip and tail. It basically makes the board less stiff in the middle and snappy at the tips and tails. If you could get your hands on the 2010 version go for it but with the popularity of the board i highly doubt that you would be able to find one and even if you could it probably would be the wrong size. If you haven't check out the videos on Rides site they probably do a better job at explaining that me. If your more into park riding but still want to charge the slopes you might want to check out the DH2. Its basically the machete with just more pop and less rocker.

I plan on getting one of the two for next season just not sure what one yet
