linvillegorge Heavily considering swallowtailing my Charlie Slasher. Not sure whether that's because I really want to or because I'm trying to rationalize buying a Yes PYL after I inevitably fuck it up.

pow specific board that rides switch

Consider a 2013 Winterstick Tom Burt Pro 172cm
its a pow stick that rides just as well after the fresh has been chewed up at the resorts. Remember to hike for it in the afternoons .

Those all look like slightly tweaked out versions of the Dupraz
Minus the couple that are identical

You can chop a swallow tail into that Ride Snapcountry, in half an hour.

I don't think the CF would complicate things much, a bandsaw/jigsaw should go through the fibres just fine?!? Then just mill out the gap and fill with epoxy, done!

The guys that have done it don't seem to complain much about weak tails...

My father has a garage with all the tools needed to do such a project, however, I believe the Slack Country has carbon and shit in the back. Not sure how that would impact cutting the board and overall strength?
That I don't know but it's not hard at all.
