Re: Armstrong vs LF

Start with mast all the way back. And work it forward a half inch at time. Until you can ride comfortably and not get a sore back leg. What rear stab wing are you using? 232 or 300. I have both rear stabs wings but prefer the 300 for its stability. And extra drag. The Armstrong hs1050 is very effici...

Re: Soloshot 3 Optix65

The biggest issue when used for kitesurfing is the shaky footage caused by the wind.

Re: Armstrong vs Axis

Re: Armstrong vs Axis

One drawback of the carbon setup I dislike is the way the CF1200 can end up on its side and stayed upwind. I got used to the well behaved nature of the heavier Shinn Alu mast tracking down to me obediently after a wipeout. Was a pain to actually have to body drag back up to it. This is not a proble...

Re: Armstrong Foil is junk

Yes they now use stainless screws. I remember seeing a YouTube video where Armstrong mentions that they use to use titanium screws but they where snapping. So they changed to stainless screws.
He talks about it at the 3 minute mark.

Hi how’s it compare to the standard flite in 14.5m.

Thanks

Re: Fastest turning foil kites

I use 12m soul from 7+ knots but use a 1200sqcm wing. No problems doing tacks with the bigger wing. Though I mostly down loop the kite to get more power when tacking.
