So it's come down to 2 boards that I'm planning on getting, either the Joystick 63w or the Machete 64w. I'm 6'2" and 225lb (and looking to drop another 10 - 15lbs) and have size 11.5 Ions and size 12 Lashed boots. The price diff is basically moot as its a 80.00 USD diff and I ride on the East coast (Quebec), never hit the park and ride mostly groomers and packed pow all day (30 - 40 times a year).
Either board will be combined with Cartels, so I'm wondering which do I get and why? Both boards are highly rated and winners of Good Wood for 2010, I just can't seem to decide.
Burton's got that ICS, V Rocker tech and pressure distr. edges (like magnetraction?) and the Ride's got Low Rise Rocker, slimewalls and sick graphics. Both are great all mountain rides, so I eagerly await the debate.
Lets hear it! :dunno:
