Hello all. New to these forums, and found them when researching the DH2 and Machete. I live in Southeast PA (Philly Area). I mostly ride jfbb, and occasionally bear creek. I also take a trip to vermont almost every year and have been out to steamboat, CO. I weigh around 175 and and am about 5'9 and size 10 boots. I mostly stick my riding to the trails, but i like to hit natural jumps and terrain. Occasionally i pass through the park and hit a box or 2, but nothing crazy. I am capable of handling blacks and double blacks out west and here on the east coast with a challenge, but nothing i can't handle. Not sure what level rider this makes me. I currently ride a 156 agenda with LX bindings and am getting a new ride due to the typical wear and tear on my current set-up after 3 seasons.
So enough on me and on to the question. DH2 or Machete?
Im looking at either the 158 Machete and cannot decided between either the 157 or 159 if i go the Dh2 direction (leaning 159 for the record).
what do you experts think?
btw i am most likely going with the SPI bindings, unless you all have other suggestions?
