2012 Ride Machete VS 2012 Rome Reverb Rocker

I am planning to get one of these boards but am unsure which one to get. Which one would be better in your opinion.

More information than just snowboarding with them would be helpful.

Ummm I think I am going to get the ride ex bindings and thrity two lashed boots not sure how that would make a difference because we are still comparing the same boards. I am also 5'8" 125lb if that matters. I want the board for all mountain and park but that should be obvious because of the two boards we are comparing.

It's not obvious. We get people asking about jib boards for all mountain use and all mountain board for jib use.

The Machete is not a great park board as the tips are pretty gnar for any sort of tech jibbiness. The Reverb Rocker is a solid board, I'd say of those two go for that.

The Rome Reverb is a great softer all mountain board! The MTN Pop camber on it really gives the board a good feel! For the price too, it is a great board! Definately wouldn't be disappointed!

So far it looks like I will be going with the rome. What about quality, will they both last a long time? I am saying when treated properly, I know if i ride it on dirt it will get messed up.

It will last as long as it should. Like 90 days on mountain thrashing it in the park.

Never tried the Rome Reverb, but the Machete is a sick AM FS stick. Definitely not a park board, but does great from groomers to pow, etc... One of the guys in my crew swears by his.

So the machete is not good at park board at all. Looks like I am going with the rome then.

Hi,

Please post up your foot size as well. Height is not a factor in board sizing but foot size is a big one.

Thanks!
