Recommendation on these boards
Little profile about myself

height: 6'1"
weight: 160lbs
shoe size: 9 US
riding style: all-mountain freestyle (bias more on freestyle more now like popping here and there and play with natural features)

I just sold my camber board and wanted to switch to rocker board. I tried out my friend's NS Heritage and liked how the rocker pops. I got much more air from my prev camber board. I'm pretty much nailing down to two tech and four boards

the hybrid rocker
- NS SL-R (more stable on steep)
- Rome Agent Rocker (more flex bias more on freestyle)

the all terrain rocker (flat in the middle with rocker on nose/tail)
- Ride Machete
- K2 Turbo Dream

From all the reviews I have read, can't lose on any of the board above, but I would still like to hear from any of you from your riding experience on these boards. If you have a better recommendation than the boards mention above, I would like to hear it too. Then I'll go do some more research.

Also, I would like to ask if 155-157 be a good length for me if my riding style is biased more on freestyle.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

My favorites for that style of riding would be a Signal Omni or an Arbor Westmark. Both will handle anything on the mountain and supply ample pop.

That is a good size range. Smaller for more park, bigger for more all mountain.

Thanks for the tips Nivek. I'll have a look at those two boards.
