  • Bottom detail - concave yes or no ? flat, v, reverse v, dome, channels

    what's the bottom like, concave, flat, v, reverse v, dome, channels ???

    I'm interested in buying one, i like the design and concept, especially the sharper tail.

        Comparison wise just as youd expect a 6-3 to be a scaled version of a lrger 6-4 or a 6-5 (6-4's dont exist in Activator so I chose the 6-3 instead.)
        6-3 Activator Skegs setup is narrower (1") than the 6-4 Dominator and just slightly narrower than Hellfire.
        Nose and tail rocker slightly more than Dominator almost a smidgen less than the Hellfire
        Width in the tail is narrower than the Dominator and smidge narrower to the Hellfire, but still pulls in more on the last 7 inches of the tail than the Hellfire. Looking at the tails the double bump swallow shows alot of change in surface areas.
        the Hellfire has more concave than the Activator, while the Activator has just a seemingly smidgin more or the same concave as the dominator.

        here are some comparison photos to a 6-4 Dominator and a 6-4 Hellfire.
        There wont be any surf until next tuesday here..

        Where Fritz compares concaves:
        the Hellfire has more concave than the Activator, while the Activator has just a seemingly smidgin more or the same concave as the dominator.
        I took it to be specifically about depth rather than contour type. It doesn't say explicitly, but I suppose it is a single concave.
