Hello

If a twintip is, let's say, 133x40, and weights more, because it's made of wood, than another 133x40 twintip, which is made of carbon, does it have better lowend, does it change anything, or does it have less lowend?
This might seem logical but I just want to be sure.

Thanks

Whats your problem about boards generating power? You drive a shape through the water and get a certain amount of power from it, the different shapes and rocker and flex give different performances and qualities.
