Default Boards similar to RIDE MACHETE

so i took my brother riding last weekend and i have a neversummer SL and a ride machete. we both agreed we liked the ride machete more. it felt like we could do no wrong on that board. now we are looking for a similar board to purchase. we dont want to have the same board so what other makes/models are very similar to the ride machete

A question almost identical to yours came up here:

And the correct answer is:

"I really don't get why he can't have the same model... It's snowboarding, not high school..."

If you both liked the Machete, both should buy the Machete.

I agree with David unless the reason is because you guys want to be able to swap your boards out between each other.

If that's the case and you want this year's model, check out the Rome Agent rocker:

Rome Agent Rocker Snowboard 2011

In reality, you're not going to find a similar ride to the Machete. A Machete is a Machete just like an NS SL is an NS SL. The Agent is a little stiffer and has camber under the bindings. It's poppy like the Machete, but more stable for bombers.

Probably the Capita Indoor Survival FK. Similar rocker profile, similar flex Machete is a bit stiffer.

Nice to see a follow up.

But ya, me and my main riding buddy both have NS Heritage..... I could care less if we have the same stick...

We both have a very similar style, and it's the best board on the market for our style. Why would one have to settle for something less ( =
