Ride Machete is awesome and the DH2. Best decks to own if you're in the park a lot but don't want a second board to rip everything else. The Parkstar is great too, very similar to a Machete, but a little more rocker, can't rip as fast on it, but handles jibs better. Edge hold might not be what you want for outside the park, but it is very good compared to most rocker out there. I can't comment for the Bataleon or NS. My buddy rides an Evil Twin and loves it, but it's way too big for me, so I can't give an objective opinion. NS is great technology for park boards, but from what I hear it's for more experienced rider (park wise) than a flat or rocker. But again, haven't ridden one yet.
