What.s better on a topload stem(Profile Push Mark Mulvile Stem), a smaller reach like 48mm or a larger reach like 63mm. I want something that's nice to do manuals and also comfortable when blasting quarter pipes and dirtjumps.

something mid range like 51 or 53 feels great

This but if those are the only sizes your looking at id go with the 63 it'll give you a bit more stability

50-53 is average. 59-63mm would be for serious trail riders who dont ride much else I guess. Ive never seen anyone run a stem that long.
I personally run a 48mm and LOVE IT. It did help me with manuals (coming from a 53mm) though I think its just preference.
The shorter the stem, the more responsive your bike feels, more responsive steering, less stable, easier bar twist tricks.
The longer the stem, the more stable your bike and steering feel, less responsive, harder bar twist tricks, easier nose manuals.

If youre unsure, I recommend just getting a 53mm.
