I want a rockered nose but what is a rockered tail good for?
I enjoy stomping drops and wonder if a swallowtail or a rockered tail would make this even less probable?..And what about those ollies when jumping gaps?
I'm considering buying a Prior swallowtail 172, a spearhead 161 or a Khyber 160. I'm barely 135lb/60kg so a 172cm board is maybe to big to handle for a small guy, but I've heard that it's good with a bit more lenght on the swallowtail... Any suggestions?
Venture Helix or Prior AMF. If you want to do some hucking, check those two boards out. Twin tip rocker boards. I'm on a Helix and it is really fun. I've taken it off cornices, pillows and down long ass galcier lines. It does it all.

tapered and swallow tail boards actually help keep you stable when landing a drop. the tail drops further into the snow allowing your nose to stay above the surface and send you over the handlebars when landing a huck.
