well put njsurfer42..well put. and i would not hesitate to pick up another bonzer if the opportunity presented itself, my 6'0 was just too big for me and the tail a tad too wide.
that egg looks fun! question, do you notice a big difference between the 5 fin and 3 fin?

the bumblebee, like the octafish & most other shorter, stubby boards, seems very sensitive to sizing. i don't see why you'd want a 6'0" unless you were over 200lbs. i was weighing in between 200 & 205lbs when brian wynn made me this 5'10"x21"x2 5/8" stubby back in 2008 & i rode it pretty much to death in a wide array of conditions:
in a fit of stupidity, i traded it in for a dumpster diver (which worked ok) & then that got traded for a neckbeard (which was a bit better, but still just ok), which got traded for a white diamond (which was good, but not great), & then i bought my octafish & it's been like coming home...

swaylocks might be useful, but they're an eccentric lot over there, as i recall. best to go to the source:

i've had a russ short 6'3 just sitting in my basement waiting for a swell like we had last week. I had the chance to ride it every day for hours for 4 days in a row in fast breaking down the line surf and just wanted to drop a note saying that what you say about how they ride is really spot on. To surf with that much speed and still be able to go off the top and cutback that hard with out losing (and sometimes gaining?) momentum to then make the next section and the next is just incredible. I'm hooked.

Got a 6'2 Mayo stub bonzer in excellent condition that I have been thinking of selling. Just not surfing a lot and when I do go I'm on a mini Sims twinzer. Twinzer suits my style more.
