Default Board Help

I am looking for a new board. I ride all over the mountain, groomers, park, etc. So I will need an all-mountain board.

I have looked at the Ride Machte, Ride DH2, Bataleon Goliath, and the YES typo.

All of these boards would work just fine probably, but I want your guy's opininions on them.

Thank You!

Any park? True Twin? Directional Twin? Directional? Rocker? CamRock? RockCam? Have you ridden CamRock, it is one of the more different rides to get used to. Same goes for TBT, it is definitely a fun ride, if you do like it. But not everyone does.

Of your given options, if you want to hit a lot of park the DH2 would be my choice. If you hit the park maybe 1 out of 3 days then the Machete will be a good match, so would a Believer. If you don't ever wish to touch any man made features, the TurboDream is a great ride.

More info will help

Ya i'll be hittin' a lot of park, but I also want something that can ride pow and go fast without losing control.

I would much rather have a twin or some type of alternative camber board.

Parkstar, DH2, Grip (though I have heard it blows on ice, haven't experienced that myself though), Indoor FK, or an Evo.

My top three in order of those would be DH2, Parkstar, Indoor FK.

The Machete is more of a jump board than the DH2. Both handle jumps better than jibs but the DH2 is a little more capable on them. The Parkstar is the most well rounded of the lot. Good pop, fun to press and stable enough for the rest of the mountain.
