rayf.: i weigh in around 185-190lbs & dropping. i'm on a serious weight-loss plan to drop about 30lbs, 10 of which i've already dropped. i peaked last fall around 205lbs. the 6'6" is a step-up for me.

the tail of my wynn is much more pulled in than a typical bumblebee tail & the wide point is pushed forward as well. the front half of the template is actually more based off of my old pavel keel fish than anything done by malcolm, as is the rocker.
i've ridden bumblebees set up as a bonzer 3 in the past & hated it. tail is too wide & too much entry rocker for it to really paddle well & catch waves easily.
the tail of my wynn was shaped the way it is to hold better in steeper waves, as it really isn't a groveller, tho it does that well. it really shines when the surf gets in the chest-shoulder high range. closer in function to the octa-fish than a bee.
