NS Cobra vs. Machete GT?
I'm in the market for a new stick and I need some help. I've narrowed it down to two boards: the 2013 Ride Machete GT and the 2013 Never Summer Cobra X. I've heard a lot of amazing things about both of these boards but I am still struggling with a decision. Both boards are about the same price, which is not an issue.
I've been snowboarding for about 8-9 years now and I have more of a freeride kind of style, but I want to start flirting with freestyle and learning some new tricks. I love to shred powder and I love to have fun on the mountain and I'm not a huge park rider, but I do enjoy the park from time to time.
Also, I am coming off of a traditional camber board, so I'm a little sketched out by the Cobra's hybrid camber. How does the Machete's Lowrize camber compare to this?
By the way, I'm 6'2 and I weigh about 165 (size 13 feet). Which length of these boards would you suggest? I was feeling the 160-163 range.
