I tried the Machete the other day and didnt get on with it at all tbh.

Here are three other boards i really liked:
- YES Jackpot
- YES The Basic
- Salomon Salomonder

The YES basic sounds like it might be what you want?

The Reverb Rocker 151 will be awesome! Camber Rocker Camber on a great flex pattern for your weight. This will be an amazing setup for you.

I can't speak on the Reverb specifically but I'll speak up for Rome's quality. I beat the shit out of Flag for about 3 years literally not caring about how I treated it and it held up to everything I threw at over that time. The only reason I still don't ride it on the regular is because I wanted to try out NeverSummers RC Tech a couple of seasons ago. Also their customer service is top notch.

I rented a machete last year and didnt like it either, found it hard to turn, and at the same time a little loose/sloppy - I see it is a flat board with a bit or rocker in the ends, maybe that was it - I'm used to riding either camber or hybrid camber on the end and rocker in the middle.

I am going with the rome for sure, everyone has said to get it over the ride. Also one more question, how should I set up my bindings. I am goofy and want to do park, so should I have them equally facing out (out as in towards the nose and tail) a little bit or both facing the nose a little bit or what?

Typically park stance tends to be duck, ie equally angled towards nose and tail, since its common to do tricks that start or land switch but whatever works for you works

15 and -15 means that 15 is towards the nose and -15 in towards the tail? or is that they are both facing the same way?
