Re: Ghost Whisperer 2017/18 compatibility

It’s 2018 GW setup released in October 2017 featuring 2016 Moses product line. Your fuselage is 680 and will fit 590/695/etc wings.
Moses delivers extremely compatible products so you’re fine to add a slower wing.

Here’s my compatibility chart viewtopic.php?p=1075851#p1075851

Re: Foil Strap Inserts stripped

A longer #12 screw might help, or #14 instead

Re: 32" Mast vs. 36" Mast ; Which is Better?

Short mast is a great idea where water is shallow. That’s why I have 80/82cm masts. Yet I’d go long mast wherever it’s deep

Re: Why does Core xr 4 fly better on a core bar?

Flying core from 2015 still waiting for my bar to snap.. Some didn’t need to wait that long. To be fair it was an issue on older bars. But how about exploding struts on XRs? I’ve seen several. A guy buys his XRs brand new with his “I’m rich” attitude and those are issues one wouldn’t expect in luxu...

Re: Foilholio wants to destroy kiteforum - any help to stop him appreciated

The forum is Toby’s baby and it’s for all to contribute and benefit from. It’s not a fighting/pissing/trolling match plaza. Somebody talk to the guy in person maybe. Make peace. Cheaper option.
Also when one’s physical location is known people tend to become a bit more practical face to face.

I'm also looking to upgrade to a faster wing to replace my spaceskate. Can anyone compare low/high end of the spaceskate vs the Apollo 60 and infinity 65? Thank you!
I’d consider H2 (Gamma 68) as upgrade option too. Higher aspect, plenty of area for kiting and costs peanuts.

Re: 17m kite Overkill

I thought a 15m Contra kite was pretty big. A 17m is unimaginable. I guess if a 17m will fly it would definitely be a session saver? Thoughts? No. Bigger doesn’t mean better. Bigger kites are slower turn/work, are heavier and don’t necessarily fly in less wind, yet they’d provide more pull for a he...

Re: Upgrading old Cabrinha bar to 2020 Modular QR.

I loved my 2016 Trimlite bar yet the caveat is that it wasn’t a good bar for foiling - too short of a throw and too little trim distance. Yet again, as jumping bar - amazing. My solution was later to have a twintip/jumping bar and a simple foiling bar with long throw and lots of trim. Idea of modula...

Re: Why does Core xr 4 fly better on a core bar?

Short answer: It's because of the V height. You can try shortening the compstick lines by 4m or so. Right. XRs need a V height bar, both for riding and for safety. As far as I can tell high-Y is less safe than low-V as you can’t pull any front line to kill kite power, but only one. Matters a lot fo...
