Pumping 8,0 downwind boards and mast position

I would like to hear opinions about the effects of the tail weight on pumping.
It is accepted that mast forward will reduce swing waves in the front, but what about the tail weight?
Too much forward seems to be also creating problems with the weight in the back.
I have the weird feeling that moving the mast back allows me to paddle faster before I pop up, and later the board seems to react faster to my pump inputs. Anyway, it’s just a feeling.
