It sounds like you want a hard charging powder board that will handle ice and pow?

The Rossi experience magtek
The Rossi XV magtek Niven knows what he's talking about.
The DC Devun pro model
The k2 ultra dream
Also the k2 peace keeper
Ride slack country? I don't know if this is a hard charger, but it definitely is a pow stick

Hmmm thanks for the input everyone. It does seem like from what everyone is saying that moving from my current Machete up to a Stiff deck will be a big move and probably worth it. Cheers!

No I did not. Only the experience, Devun pro, and slack country.

Hmmm...
I don't know... I haven't fully understood what you're looking for (and I kind of guess, you neither ).
I can sing hosanna on my Lady in Black. But all my boards were relatively stiff, and I don't know the Machete so I kind of don't know what to comment on your particular situation, can't say how big the difference will be . I love the board cos it fulfills my most important requirements: powability and stability. But I don't hit jumps if not in pow (soft landing) and I don't ride switch () and I'm sure don't do other of your requirements. I just carve, straight line or ride pow. And for this, the Lady is sweet. It's fast, stable, responsive: perfect board for perfect days. Exhausting on bad days (bitch in moguls!). What are your expectations? What's the terrain you're going to ride?

Kinda the best way to put it is to compare it to the Turbo Dream. The Turbo is an all mountain board that slays pow, the Ultra is a pow board that slays all mountain.
