Default NS Evo vs Ride Machete

I need a board that can go anywhere with an emphasis in park and jibbing. I have heard great things about the Machete and I keep seeing and hearing buzz about the NS lineup and for my focus the EVO. Which ever one i get it will be a '11 and probably in the area of a 152. Any and all input is appreciated thanks

What about the K2 Parkstar or the Fastplant...They seem like similar boards and i from what i read they seem to be able to work the whole mountain and still handle park and jibbs

He's looking for something all-mountain that's still great in the park. You're going to need a little stiffness for that.

I think the Evo is ideal for what he's looking to do

The Parkstar is like the missing link between the Machete and DH2. Between the Evo and Machete I say Evo. Its evident that it is damp enough and has enough edge-hold to rock the whole mountain and the tips are going to bet softer than the Machete making it more fun in the park. Between the Evo and the Parkstar you are choosing if you want RC or 3 stage. They are similar rides.
