Frank - great feedback, thank for the write up. With you having tried all the masts so far, can you tell us similar feedback about the other masts? Mainly what do you find the big difference and uses on 101 vs 91? What is the best use of 71?
I have the Vorace 101 and the 550 / 330 freeride and also the new 548 / 325 wave wings, and mostly looking for wave riding and carving/freestyle. Curious about the other mast lengths.
I started to write kind of a guide for the complete Moses range, listing all masts and all wings and possible combinations combined with my riding impressions.
Will take a bit of time to finish though.
Quick answer for you for now:
Switching between 101 and 91 is very easy for me and does not really need any time to get used to the other length.
The 101 obviously offers more length and more tolerance between board on water and wing out of water. While the 91 is a but more reactive.
For high maneuverability and riding in rather flat water doing quick maneuvers all the time on little room I prefer the 91.
This I like to combine with all wings up to 558 (548, 550, 558)
When mostly doing longer tacks the 101 is what I go for. Combined with 558 or 600 mostly.
Both are great allround lengths for me, on both I can do whatever I want basically.
The 71 for me is super fun, feels very playful.
I can do all maneuvers on it in rather flat water.
I also like about it that it makes me focus on precise riding as of course the tolerance between board on water or wing out of water becomes way smaller, especially on maneuvers.
It feels good with 548, 550, 558 wing.
I would think it could also be a great wave riding option when the conditions are right and also great for jumping I would guess, as I am riding strapless only I can not really tell, but I had the feeling that I would like to jump on it (which I normally never get when foiling!) and because of that started to do a few strapless airs, with nice wipeout landings, but I see potential... we'll see...
Hey pikovsg what do you think about the new 325 rear wing compadres to the 330 ?
My experience (but very keen to hear from other people that used both too!):
The 325 gives a more loose, lively, reactive feeling. More playful overall.
While the 330 feels more locked in, provides more tracking and roll stability.
