Andy, I have the same blank and love it, though mine is 13'. Out of curiosity, what made you go with the 11' instead of the 13'?

crazy stuff..... great work all around

martzy, how was the butt section on the S7, i was told some while ago that they where changing it up from the prototypes (they where thicker than the S8s), on the heavers anyway.... I haven't seen them on the sand, yet, and haven't gotten excited for them due to that fact.

Koss, the 11' is a plugging rod in the vapor trail line. The heaver is 13'.

Lucky, that's exactly why I went with the vapor trail instead of the S7. A lot bigger butt. Guess I'm not sir mix a lot.

thanks Guys, nice builds also, I am going to start another as soon as I decide on a color combo someone needs to invent a computer program where you can lay out the colors and see what they look like, it would make my brain hurt less confused.gif

There is a program like that. Visual wrap, maybe??

You tell it the colors you want to use and give it pattern instructions, the it tells you what you will get.

Visual wrap will show you patterns but there are some free online tools to show color combinations together. Thread Central Color Combo Tester would do it but I have not used it in a while and when I did it only had Gudebrods library I believe. Last time I tried it it did not work but give it a shot. If it still only has Gudebrod colors you can cross reference the color to another brand. Also the Mokoi Thead Color Matching Tool works very well and I would highly recommend trying it out for yourself. I usually find color combos using a color wheel which are only a few dollars and will show you 2,3,or 4 complimentary colors. Also just use colors of items you see everyday, maybe product packaging or advertisements. The artists have already done the work of choosing appealing color combinations. I have even been know to use the color combo from my favorite beer bottle smile.gif
