the 450 will turn the 633 into a roller coaster...the tail cant push the mast straight and it swoops up and down when going fast (fast is relative on the 633)....just my experience....

as above, but the 450 can feel great for a short while in underpowered conditions, and waves can be played on in a hard carving way but not with fast open clear flat sections, the combination can feel great, but as soon as you let the speed build, and even worse if your locked down with straps things can go all wrong, sudden wipe outs that can't be explained, going for a big jump suddenly ends in a crash out just at the loading up stage for the take off.
but go slow and strapless and it feels very slashy and grips when driven deep and hard and not too fast.
(rubbish when used on the 720 baltz pro wing)

483 is more skatey, 450 is more stable
483 wingtips daggers are prone to damage
450 will move stance forward (or mast further back), and to compensate that I shim my 450 up

450 is better

It is correct. I have a 633 with a 450 stabilizer plus a small shim. It's perfect for me.
