A swallow tail changes the whole dynamic of the board, it does more than just help the nose float and one of the things I found is it allows you to turn much easier on steeper slopes in deep powder. It makes a slope ridable that you wouldnt be able to ride on a normal board, if thats being soft so be it, to me being soft is not trying new things to see if you like them or not.
A swallow tail one of those things you just cant get your head around until you ride one in deep pow.
