good thing for me he is busy this afternoon and I just went and looked, Overhead and a half on the sets, glassy and there is no one out.
Gonna snag the AM2s for a sesh and see if they allow me to draw my lines out a bit more.
they are a bit bound up for me on the 510HF..feels like a hex set would balance it out better...the template definitely works well in opening up the HF...just that the t/flex version is too stiff for quick pumps/transitions...
Chito, what was your reason for selling the HELLFIRE? just curious...
There is really some good comments and info here. For anyone searching this forum for useful info, I'd suggest an OP or Moderator edit in the title as it should read "how does the HellRazor Ride".
Core- I agree I used the AM2s and hated them, for the spitfire at least they were to stiff and took away from the overall whippy, skatey feeling that the board has. I can see how on a big day with a more pinned out board though when your drawing out that massive bottom turn they could be good. Until then I will leave them to my brother.
Fritz - I sold the HF because After having bought the Spit it began to take over the lower end of what I would normally surf my HF in so I only used the HF when It got really hollow or big and dont get me wrong it went great, for a 5'8 to behave the way it did in solid double overhead surf was pure brilliance in shaping as far as I am concerned. I was surprised time and time again as to how well the board went in the playful scale as well as in the balls to the wall conditions that I pushed it in. If I could of I never would of sold my Hellfire and simply just added the Hell razor on top of it but unfortunately I dont have magical pants that produce little green pieces of paper every time I reach into them so I had to sell my HF in order to afford a Razor. And in order to get a decent amount of money for it I had to due so ASAP before I put any more wear and tear into it, it was by no means beat up but its just that when you are going for broke in punchy beach break every day on every wave you never know what you will be greeted with when you manage to pull yourself off the bottom. That being said I am now really feeling the loss of a board for bigger better waves, the spitfire is awesome and all and it surf hollow surf very well for the outline it has but I feel like its holding me back now and I need that more foiled out board to hold through my turns a bit better.
My Thoughts were that If I sold the HF and replaced it with a HR than I would be expanding the spectrum of waves which I would be equipped to surf, and surf properly. As to how correct my decision was I cannot say at this point because I'm yet to have the board under my feet, but based simply on feedback in the short period of time that the Razor has been out I am more than confident that the razor will fulfill the role I Intend it to and it will find its niche amidst the peaks and walls out front when it really starts pumping.
Jase- I agree on the title correction, I would really like to edit it but up until now I have not found a method of doing so, maybe chris or someone could help with that. I started the thread late at night after I had been kept up thinking about how epic the razor was going to feel.
Chris- Could you please give me your email so I could discuss some things with you about how to get a board down here. Thanks
Given what you want the HellRazor for, I don't think you're going to be disappointed.
