Snowboard Advice

Postby Cldra » Mon May 06, 2019 3:31 am

currently have a 2011 Ride Machete 158, which i believe is flat (or possibly slightly cambered between the feet) and then rockered outside the middle. I got the board thinking that I wanted an all mountain board that was good in the park. However, I've realized the only time I spend in the park is a quick roll through to hit some kickers and that my riding now mainly consists of blasting down groomers/high speed carving, riding powder if/when it dumps, and throwing it around in the trees. I was wondering if a new/different board would be better suited for these things.

So I guess my current priorities in a board are: i) fast and stable, ii) good in all conditions (including corduroy, afternoon torn-up-conditions, and ice), iii) fun to mess around with and take through the trees and iv) good in powder.

Budget: since I already have a board and go on one trip a year, I'm trying to find last year's models somewhere around $3-400
Size: 6'0" and 175lb

Given these, I was looking at the 2015 Rossignol One Magtek 159 (I found for <$300) or something from Lib Tech, like the T Rice Pro, but haven't been able find any on sale. Any recommendations on boards and where to find deals?
