Re: Confusion on Slingshot's 2019 line

Sorry sendit, I have already thrown it out. Otherwise I would have shipped it to you so you could use one kite size smaller.

Re: Confusion on Slingshot's 2019 line

Grigorib thanks for questioning the weight that I came up with. I did mention that the scale was not wildly accurate but I had no idea how much it was out. I weighed it again this morning on three different scales. the original one still came up with the same weight but the other two came up with a ...

Re: Confusion on Slingshot's 2019 line

I did not have time now to disassemble the foil wing but I did a quick weigh of the 76 wing, small stabilizer and short fuselage and it was about 3.5 pounds. It was not a very accurate scale but should give you an idea of the weight. If you want the weight of just the wing weigh your fuselage and st...

Re: SS’s New Infinity Wings

I cannot comment on whether area generally is good stat to go by but my h4 wing and the infinity 76 have close to the same area but the 76 is quite a bit wider and the 76 has much more lift and is far less turny. So maybe you have to take all the individual stats together to determine the wings perf...

Re: SS’s New Infinity Wings

I managed to get out on the infinity 76 today on the simulator board with a 60 cm. mast. It is shallow out a long way where I was kiting. The wind meter directly upwind from me said 12 knots gusting to 16. The lulls were definitely less than that. It was extremely gusty. I weigh 180 lb and to start ...

Re: SS’s New Infinity Wings

I have the h4 and the infinity 76 and 84. I use the 84 for windfoiling and have not tried it with the kite. I agree it has way more lift than the h4. Just got the 76 and hope to kite with it today. Will post a report once I try it. Had it for over a week but getting the new wing killed the wind. I u...

Re: Confusion on Slingshot's 2019 line

I have not used the carbon setup but I have the h4 (now called space skate), the infinity 76 and 84 wings and they all work on the same fuselage. It is the switch fuselage that I use, not sure if that is what yours is. They are very durable and I do not notice the weight in the water while foiling.t...

Re: ? SS H4 wing-mounted mast-connection position... advice

I use the H4 on a Slingshot Simulator board and have tried it both with the mast in the wing and mounted behind the wing on the fuselage. I much prefer it in on the fuselage. I find it seems to have much more lift and just easier for me to control. With it in that position. I definitely have my cent...

Re: Moses 633 vs Slingshot H4 wing

I found the H4 wing to be very stable side to side but maneuverable when I wanted to to be. I have not tried the Moses 633.

Re: Slingshot H4 Wing

Thanks. I have a 30 inch last that I will try next time in stronger wind. Yes it was really stable going slow.
