Settled on a cut. only concern I have is how close the top of the cut is to the carbon stringers. Under 1/2" away. Wanted to leave as much tail as possible to maintain solid groomer riding so the cut is a little narrow but taking 15" in length should still allow it to sink well. I'll update more when I chop. Probably this week sometime.

the lines are much smoother, the tail is a little shorter, and most of all it looks like it cuts off the most of the tail kick out of the 3 - no reason for tail kick on a swallow - you want that bitch to sink in the back. fuck groomers. you won't be riding this kind of board on a groomer day. (what the fuck is a 'groomer day'? )

This was actually the inspiration for my latest mockup. Of course I would be rounding out the tips after the initial cut. If this is what you were referring to then i think I will stick with the current mock. I havent drawn in the tip rounding yet. This is what I came up with on the computer based on my template as a final product. Thoughts?

yea, visually the pointy tips were fucking with my ocd. i think that'll be good - but keep in mind that all the production swallowtails are made to be swallowtails... if they have any tail kick at all its very minimal, nothing like a freeride board with a full kick tail. i'd be wanting to make the cut so as to have a flat or almost completely flat tail.

Ill keep that in mind. Once I make the initial straight cut Ill be able to season to taste. Can always take more off. Cant put it back on, at least without some fantastic duct tape!
