Hey - I currently ride a 2011 155 DH2 and also own a 2009 155 DH. Picked up the DH2 primarily because of the rocker but also find it to be more "lively" than the DH which feels a little "dead" IMO. Besides cruising the usual I'm mostly into ground tricks outside of the park and small/medium jumps in the park these days so I'm looking for a board that's easier to butter - I can definitely do it on the DH2 but it's a workout. My primary goal is to get a board that is easy to press and still stable enough to charge the mountain. That being said, I'm leaning towards the Machete, Kink, and Crush (in that order) at 155 (I'm 5'11" and 160). Any advice from those with experience on these boards is welcome. I know it's all subjective, but I'd like to hear it anyway - especially in comparison to a DH2.
To give some background, I've also owned a 152 Capita Stairmaster which I thought was great for boxes and such but horrible for bombing down a mountain - as well as various other all-mountain Rides that are too stiff for what I'm into these days (159 Prophet, 159 Timeless). I live in Colorado and get about 30-40 days a year at the local resorts. Thanks in advance.
