Light wind Boosting

I've been using my Moses 637 Race wing for boosting. In lighter winds I use an 18m Sonic 2 up to low teens. Now I've picked up the W800 Wing for lighter winds, I'm wondering if I still need an 18m for boosting in lighter winds or if the larger Wing will get me boosting at least as good as the 18m wi...

Re: Best Moses wing for boosting?

Any experiences with the new 670 wing? Is it more likely to break in case of bad landing because it sits on top of the fuselage - instead of below like the other Moses wings? I’d love to hear more comments on this they also just came out with the 671 which is the same as the 670 but works with the ...

Re: Line extension - Is there an easier way?

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50100654311_607da621cb_z.jpg I tried this method with Flysurfer rings ( the ones that they have at the end of the Main lines to connect lines) . I got a lot of tangles in my lines because of the weight of the rings and the fact that they grip the other lines. Do ...

Line extension - Is there an easier way?

How do you guys attach/ detach line extension? Is there a quicker way than looping the extension line through the kite line? Is it safe to loop a figure 8 knot in the loop end of the line since it's folded over already without losing half the strength ? see picture below My other option is to use pi...

Camet Foot strap screws

I picked up a used 2018-2019 Camet race board from someone that was using it strapless. I used wood screws for the straps and they stripped out of the rear strap after the second session. Any clues on what kind of screws these take? Now that I'm looking closely They look like they may take machine s...

Re: Foil Strap Inserts stripped

You're talking about the type where you screw right into a plastic block right? Going up one diameter size worked for me in the past as well. Also, I used longer screws and cut off the pointed part. You don't need the pointed part of the screw for this application, and it gives you more threads to ...

Re: Foil Strap Inserts stripped

one of my foiling buddies recently used helicoils to secure his straps, he rides hard and fast and boosts big as well, so tests to the limit. jb will not work, resin injection is not great, wooden matchsticks work, but not for long term use. helicoils work, but you need to get the right tools and b...

Re: Foil Strap Inserts stripped

I’ve used jb weld but I think metal inserts if you are removing all the time are the way to go. I think slingshot needs to up their insert game. How would I install metal inserts? Helicoil right into the plastic? I haven’t done it. I was concerned with the diameter of the helicoil. But foot hooks, ...
