    Cheers

    So a 602 Alternator would be easier and more veratile than a 601/603 Hellrazor?

    I was under the impression that it was the other way around ?

      I was under the impression that the HZ did like a steeper/cleaner wave than the Alt. Subtle differences perhaps, but there.

        was thinking that the added width would make the HZ more stable and make it across flat sections better than the alternator... there's more rocker, but most of it is in the nose? As long as the boards are about the same volume, a 602 Alternator and a 603 Hellrazor for example, the Hellrazor will have more surface area and would get up to speed easier... and if the tail rocker is less as well + quad fins...I would think that it would work better. But then again, I might be totally wrong :]

        Looks like the Alternator has more tail kick, but less nose rocker?

            i believe the alternator will b quicker out of the gate because it is a flatter outline... razor will handle steeper more critical waves better.. razor is plenty fast but imo have to work a lil more to get the speed

              Ive ridden both extensively, hellrazor is a better board in my opionion, zippier, looser and better control in bigger waves with drop down rail and narrower tail.
