    I even took a short one 155 into the back country (And I mean deeeep back country) on a snow machine and got away with it. Very forgiving board. I was borrowing my son's and liked it so much I purchased one too.

              Good rocker. Lowrize is versatile. Stable and fast between your feet. Pop Rods add good pop to the tip and tail. The machete is my favorite rocker board.
