2012s? I can vouch for the 2012 rome postermania as a great medium (closer to soft than stiff) flex all-mountain freestyle board. They're also made in Austria now vs. the 2011 postermanias (made in Taiwan), which were too loose feeling with the reverse camber. A more stable board than the agent rocker also.
Never rode a machete, but I hear good things about them... "cleave" (thicker) edges should be on every board. I'd imagine it'd be slightly stiffer than the postermania, from the reviews i've read. Made in China if that matters to you.
