Hi John! We are already connected on Woo!..Chuck. Glad to hear this. What is the space difference for the mast from 558 to a comfortable spot for the 637? I'd rather have a frame of reference from you than going through trial and error .Texaskiter wrote: ↑Fri Jun 01, 2018 2:34 amCwood - I purposely went out yesterday and tried both the 558 and 637 in one session to see if I agreed with my original position. And I must say I have flipped my opinion. The 637 is a much better jumping set up. I think my initial issue was that my mast placement was too far forward. This required a lot of front foot pressure at speed which made the load and pop more challenging than the 558. Now that I have the 637 mast in the sweet spot (all the way back), there is no comparison to how fast I can go and then load and pop. I am still dialing it in but am now thinking the 558 is gonna be for sale soon. Sounds like you use a Woo. My user ID in the Woo world is John Price. Let me know your handle so I can keep up with your jumps. Had jumps in the 40 ft range the last 3 days. All in sub 18mph wind. What a game change foiling is.cwood wrote: ↑Wed May 30, 2018 5:10 pmThe reviews of the low end have surprised me for sure. Begs the question why one would need the 558 as well if the range is so good. I have a feeling that I will be a 637 guy with occasional 633 sessions.Texaskiter wrote: ↑Wed May 30, 2018 3:42 pmCwood- It may be that I am simply getting used to the 637. But the initial feel is that it takes more effort to get the same pop due to the pitch stability. Loading feels good on both wings. Both are fast but the 637 goes fast more effortlessly. Just feels like the 558 jumps out of the water more distinctly. Please give us your review when you get out there. Will be interested in your impressions. Again, you will be amazed at the low end (slow planing) capability on the 637 as well.
