What is the difference between the normal Tail Pad Antenna and the Tail Pad Antenna Mini?

We now have two tail pad antenna's to choose from depending on the size of your surfboard. 


If your board has plenty of volume and is over around 6' then the standard antenna is your best option offering the most protection with the largest electrical field. 


We recommend the Tail Pad Antenna Mini for boards under 6' to reduce the zap which may be experienced on the fingers when duck diving on shorter boards with less volume. 

The mini produces exactly the same power output however creates a smaller protective electrical field because the electrodes are smaller and closer together (see comparison electrical field images). The attached image shows the new mini on Tom Carroll's 5'7" to help provide you with an idea of size.
