I reckon if you're a shorter/heavier guy riding one longer than your height it makes a difference. For me at 6'0 and looking at a 509/510 it's going to feel too short in the big stuff I reckon.
The low nose rocker would be another limiting factor but I don't know how flat it actually is. The Mini Driver was described as low nose but for me it has a decent amount.
Buzzy, the CC is definitely different to the Dom however has similar characteristics as the SF, I do think the CC will handle a larger wave range than the SF I have only ridden mine up to4ft and feels like it will handle a lot more.The thing about the CC is the volume of my 6'6" V's My old SF 6'4" is a fraction lower and you can feel it does not float as well however it does catch waves easily. If you are used to a thruster the CC is nice however if you are used to a quad it's a bit of a transition however not to bad probably 2-6 waves. I did go back to my BP 5'11" today and what a board in under 3ft it almost like cheating it's that easy to ride, the amount of waves you catch and the board rips perfect for the summer crowd. If you want a two board quiver get a BP and CC and you are sorted for anything from 6 inches to 7ft.
Would I be correct in saying that the CC would have the most tail rocker in the FW range
That kick looks like the old Taj
I'll have to check it against a mates old Taj and also against the Bourez and see.......does have a decent tail kick for sure.

The tail kick offers a great compliment to the low entry rocker. A good paddler that is still able to perform in the steep and tight stuff. Forgiving, high performance, and easy to get into waves. Pretty good combo.
Yeah I'm a big fan of a low entry/tail kick combo.
I think me and the 510 would get on well...
Anyone have more feedback on fins for the chedda??
I am absolutely loving this board and am trying to dial in the perfect fin set.
So far ive tried:
EA techdlex- worked awesome in the shoulder to head 1/2 range.
WCT techflex- liked in steep beachies but a little too much pivot in slower waves.
Im thinking of buying both of these sets for their respective benefits in certain conditions.
CM1- Not a fan. They were aweful when I surfed them in a bit of chop.
YU- didnt like them.
Want to try EA blacksticks
and AM1 blacksticks
Anyone have any advice? Im 6'3 180. 6'1 ched. Finding that small tip and lots of rake are things I dont like
Hey daveo I have mine set up with Future AM2 Techflex and found that they suit most conditions from in waves bigger than 3ft very stable fin with great release off the top, also tried my JC1 Blackstix and hated them the board felt really tight. I have only ridden by CC over 3ft as the BP takes its place in anything under 3ft.
yeah I reckon with a) your weight b) volume and width of the CC & c) the tail rocker of the CC you will need to try something larger than the fins you have described above.
Those little fins are hiding around the corner of the rocker and due to tail width set apart (in very oversimplified terms tight fin cluster = drive and straight lines. - separated cluster = loosness)
IMO you need something bigger to connect with the water to drive off.
AM2 techflex or kinetic racing JP5 carbo-tune, and I would be leaning to the JP5 with a bigger base, slightly less rake and slightly more area in the tip. Plus I think the flex is more suited to the 2 - 4 foot range.
