working on sanding, finishing the inside edge at the moment, a re-paint is in the plans. Ił,m not on a rush, i want it to be nicely done, if I only test it next season so be it.

few questions for those who already tested their board.:
1- do you guy' feel the tails are a lot softer/flexier than before?
2- would they benefit from some reinforcement? either added laminate or a stiffener bar between the tips?

I am impressed with the tools you've got. Why don't you just try out the swallow tail alone and see how things go? Maybe it's good enough already. If you make modifications and try them out little by little, you will have more useful data to reflect upon later. We are all to some extent doing experiments, don't we? Or maybe you seldom hit the powder slopes and you are compelled to try out all your ideas in one go.
