Anyone got a ride Machete?

So I need a new board this season. I want something a little more on the all mountain side. Ive been looking at some lib tech and NS boards, but since I work at sportchek I can get a Ride Machete on discount for around 270$ Ive been riding for 13 years and Ive never ever had anything other than traditional camber. So I was just wondering what people thought about the machete, good first rocker board? Im not looking for something a little more poppy though, not a beginner board.

Any input is great.

six minutes, six minutes you're on.

I have a ride highlife which is a stiffer version with less rocker in the tail. I love it and would recommend it/the machete. For that money the machete is very hard to beat IMO.

Thats what I was thinking. Considering how many times a year I can get out to the mountains I cant really go wrong with the price.

I have a machete from 2010. It is pretty much the same thing as the new one. I have the 161W. The quality of the board is definently more than a $270 value. The rocker is not to crazy were when you are riding icy days it it still has a good amount of control. Though with the rocker it is definetly good for those powpow days.

If i was in you position i would get one from Lib with some magne traction, just because i have never had a lib snowboard. i have a lib snowskate and its great.
