That is the perfect description of the issue,.. It didn't feel like the tail edge "released" right! Thanks.

I didn't think about this possibility until after posting and re-reading it. I suppose the rocker between the inserts causes a bit of a wobble during the transition? Maybe keeping/letting that rear edge stay or re-engage contact when flattening out, especially if my weight distribution isn't spot on perfect?

It did feel a bit like it released and then briefly re-engaged before I was fully committed to the nose & heel side edge of the turn transition . That's why it felt so sketchy to me. It surprised me and I panicked a little! Thought I was gonna go down hard! LOL!
