Re: Slingshot Phantasm Carbon foil launch - 2020

When ingot mine 590 and 633 back in beginning of 2018 I also couldn’t find area of the wings - I just calculated it myself. Not only area is important - the profile thickness is important too as well as aspect ratio. My assumption is 633 is same 1250 sq.cm and 657 is about 700 sq.cm. Anyone with pie...

Re: Slingshot Phantasm Carbon foil launch - 2020

Marketed as a 633? A bit cheeky following the great success of the Moses onda 633? Slingshot designed the 633 and not Moses (if I'm not mistaken) Really? Where do you get that info please? Slingshot designed breakthrough 590 and 633 wings for Moses. Too sad they stopped cooperating, too sad Slingsh...

Re: China copies of big brand kites?

In US it’s not unusual to buy previous years brand new kites for $400-$600. Original products. Great quality. They don’t cost much to make, I’d assume $300 a piece and now with gradual exodus of big kites it is less fabric to use, less struts to stitch. Never saw a kite copy, I don’t think those are...

Re: need new bag for my hydrofoil

I use Dakine bag which fits two complete foils - two boards, two masts, two fuselages and two pairs of wings and I love that thing. I put boards foam facing each other and each other component has its own compartment.

Re: Slingshot UFO

I’d say a 3m UFO is a lightweight rider gear primarily. At 200+ lbs I took it out when I was quite overpowered on 5m. Yet a 4m would have felt more appropriate and I think the 3-5 gap is too large. 4m Ghost feels rather as 5m SST so I got a 4m SST as my smallest. Need a 4m UFO

Re: SS Time code 68/ Rideengine Arc 68 ride experience

These are scaled up original Hoverglide H5 wings aka TimeCode 57. Larger area would allow you to get onto foil earlier and go at lower speed while not affecting top speed much. Originally introduced as H1 wing those were a “not in stock” mirage for first year of their existence so people rather used...

Re: Shared Kite Range Him & Her

13m Contra / 14.5 Flite 11-8 (-6 later) Switchblade / XR / Pivot / 2016-19 Rally Or 13m Contra / 14.5 Flite 10-7 (-5 later) Switchblade / XR / Pivot / 2016-19 Rally 15 is kind of too big for both of you, the door with long lines would do well for lightwind with slightly smaller wing 12m is a monster...

Re: thinner race lines on my slingshot compstick,,,recommendations

Until now Slingshot has used different line length for center and back lines, so make sure you mention the difference when you order your set. I personally wouldn’t use neither the Sentinel nor Guardian for foiling, certainly not in their standard setup but race lines are awesome and I like my Ozone...
