i'm thinking if i was to get the swallow i'd want to ride it with big fronts and a smaller centre.
Like an xlarge front and a smaller centre. I was thinking a set of Large reactors in the front and maybe a M3 size centre, which i guess would be the centre fin from a medium size.

Also,

If you had two boards exactly the same, but one had low entry and exit rocker and the other had medium entry and exit rocker. How much different would the boards paddle? Would it be that noticeable?

Just buy it. And if you don't like it sell it. :)

The swallow tail issue was surrounding the board on the gumtree.

The rocker question was more around my thoughts on getting a board with a bit more rocker for the better days around home.
I like the looks of the Slater designs Gamma. Thinking the 5’10 x 19.5 x 2.5 (30l). It’s about as low as I’ve gone volume wish and they have a fair bit of rocker in them.

Just don’t want to be wasting any cash on the buy and sell.
