Out of the two, the Custom X is going to be best for your style. You are not going to like the Machete for bombing.
The Machete's lowrize rocker is a very subtle rocker between the bindings.
If you want a Ride snowboard that is better suited to your needs, look at the High Life. This has a LowPro rocker. It is a subtle rocker in the tip and nearly flat in the tail. It's a much better board for bombing runs.
Out of the High Life and Custom X... depends. If you ride a lot of powder, the High Life wins my vote. If you do mainly groomers and some powder, the Custom X gets my vote. If you do a lot of jumping (even if you ever venture into the park), the Custom X is better.
