Slingshot swivel is big crap - need alternative

Hi,
all of my 4 Slingshot guardian swivels are no more working properly. The newest is only nearly one year old and doesn't rotate anymore. I already put some Sailcote on it, but stil a pita to untwist after every downloop transition manually.
Can yoi recommand alternatives?
Thanks

Re: Gong foils: discussion

Hi, I own both, curve L + curve 39 stab and fluid LS + fluid 40 stab and have not figuered out yet which combo I prefer! Curve+ curve is not necessarily the slowest. It only accelerates slower than the fluid. Top end speed is nearly the same. You can unleash the curve by putting the fluid stab on it...

Re: Current Kitefoil surf-type foils

Hello gang, would any of you radicalized foilers have any recommendation to replace my current GONG setup? :D I ride a 100cm carbon mast which is very rigid. My front is a Fluid L-S, a "highish" aspect front wing of 1100sq cm, and a small, 230 sq cm stabilizer (FLuid S 39cm). Love the combo : it ha...

Re: Gong foils: discussion

Thanks for your comment. I experienced the same as you. 100cm nearly in all aspects better. Only nice roundhouse cutbacks (frontside) are a bit fickle and feel not very loose and relaxed as with my shorter mast. It is more kind of short snap or hack. Backside turns and carving rail to rail is more f...

Re: Gong foils: discussion

Thanks a lot Janus.
Unfortunately there it is nowhere to be found on the web. Either new or used as monobloc with integrated fuselage :-(

Re: Gong foils: discussion

Would it be possible for anyone to measure the exact lenght of the 85cm monobloc ( the v2 version with integrated fuselage) from top of the plate - bottom of fuselage?
My 100cm monobloc is actually 105cm, so maybe interested in the shorter one for better carvability.
Thanks

Re: Gong foils: discussion

I have a Fluid MT for higher wind Wingfoiling and lower wind Kitefoiling.. really nice combo frontwing But.. it is still far from the feeling I get when kitefoil with my kitefoil gear.. the MT still feels draggy.. slow boating feeling.. Thicker mast and fuselage I guess.. I think I will never get a...

Re: Gong foils: discussion

Right, for me it is meant for kitefoiling. I like the turning/carvability, the lift and the glide of my fluid, but when racing upwind back to my starting point to ride some windswell, I would like to go faster. And I have really the impression that the foil could go faster if the leading edge would ...
