Do it man.

Also just wondering when you cut the tail leaving two thin strips like that doesn't it loose quite a bit of stiffness and therefore control?

I was concerned about that so I kept my two tails as thick in width as possible to maintain rigidity.

I am guessing in powder its not an issue but do you feel the lack of stiffness in the tail on hardpack?

I know all my questions will be answered when I get my swallowtail on the snow, but its still mid summer here.
