Gear Question

I am debating between the Ride Machete,...

Posted on

I am debating between the Ride Machete, K2 Slayblade and the Yes. Snowboards Typography. I do mostly powder and all-mountain boarding in Utah (Snowbasin, Powder Mountain, and Solitude) but want to get more into rails and booters. Any suggestions? Has anyone had any experience with the Yes. Snowboards?

I hear good things about the Slayblade. Asking about the "Yes" snowboards, here's a review I came across the other day...

Machete is awfully soft for an all-mtn ride, slayblade is tip-to-tail carbon and flatline technology so not bad but your gonna want some more rocker if your looking for a pow-ish board. Check out lib-tech's Travis Rice with the C2 so you get the best of both worlds, or try Burton's Flying-V, its the same concept as the C2.

I'm not really sure what GangstaGangsta245 is trying to say about the Machete. It is not all that much softer than a Palmer Honeycomb 4 - which is itself a *super* rigid board. I've been using it as my all mountain board all season, and by all mountain, I mean, anything *but* the park. I hit up the park maybe 2 runs in a given day, but most of the time is spent carving down anything and everything. The machete has kept up with all other boards I ride with, and it does it much more comfortably than most.
