|Regulatori||I have a machete and absolutely love it...such a fun board. I may do park in the future but for right now it's an all mountain board. It's really hard to explain what it's like to ride it..just playful/fun and gives you tons of room for error. I've ridden in a lot of different snow conditions and I've had zero issues. I riden some of my friends boards and it seems the Machete you can get by with a few mistakes here and there and it doesn't bite you. It's definitely one of those things where I was a bit hesitant to purchase but afterwards feel it was an awesome choice/no regrets.|

The Machete is leaning towards the park, but this board just rips all-mountain. Slimewalls! Harsmellow is definitely good from K2's camp. For a K2, I'd rather get the Turbo Dream or DarkStar. Still, I enjoyed the Machete a lot more than the Slayblade.
I do perform freestyle moves on the mountain though so that could be the reason why I loved it so much.

I thought the Machete might be a board more for all mountain but with a park specific focus, am i wrong here?
I want a board that just straight up fuckin RIPS.. big kickers when i need to hit em but nothin that im gonna take into the park unless its to launch off of a booter..
my main focus is to point the nose straight down and carve the mountain in half and possibly catch airs offa shit on the way down..
Ive been wanting that T.Rice but never pulled the trigger at the begining of the year and ended up with a btx which is fine until it got stolen.
i also hear good things about the NS heritage and Slr
im just stuck on what to grab..

I've tried all but the TRice. I highly favor the Machete. The Slayblade's 0 camber is cool and all, but it just isn't as fun as the Machete. If you can handle fast boards and love to bomb down runs, the Machete will do the job. This board had great edge to edge control and had 0 chatter when bombing steep, icy runs. It also had a very satisfying amount of pop. Popping off natural features was a joy.
I hear great things about the TRice though. If I needed another all-mountain board, the Machete would be it.

|danm||Well I haven't ridden the other boards but I'm absolutely in love with my 157 C2 T.Rice. I just got it so I've only taken it out once but after only a few runs I was charging a lot harder than on my old board, it's very stable but still maneuverable and it really stomps landings. Hope that helps|
