I am also sold on the Machete but can't decide between the 158 and 155. I'm 5'6" 82kgs (180lbs)wear size 8.5 boots. Needs to be good for everything including deep pow in Japan as I can't afford to carry 2 boards anymore as airlines seem to be clamping down on excess baggage. I currently ride a 158 No.4 so am leaning towards the 158 at the moment. Any suggestions?
Go for the 158 if you need it to be a good All-Mountain/Pow Deck. You size rocker boards just like regular boards... if you were going to jib with it go down a size, All-Mountain for with the 158, Powder only grab the 161.
I'm going with the 158 as well so that it rips up everything I go through.
