Default skate banana or ride machete

so after many hours of research I've found the ride machete and skate banana to be my favorites.
I'm stuck in between choosing either.
I was looking at the 151n skate banana or 152 machete
5'8", 125lb, 9.5 size boot
I'm on the skinny side so I'm looking for something light and with lots of control.
What's your guys take on this?
(looking to do some jibbing, but want to be able to take on all the mountain.. which both should do)

go with the machete... the lowrize rocker is much easier to take all mtn than the btx on the skate banana.

I really like my machete. The lowrize rocker makes adapting to the board very easy. The slight rocker design paired with its sidecut allows the machete to handle the whole mtn with ease. The banana will have a lot more of a loose feel to it.

Skate banana is a very good board. Well suited for a free ride and jibbing.No poorly controlled at high speeds.
