Interested to know what material and process have you used to modify Gong fuselage ?
I have to do the same between a chinese carbon mast (from efoil setup) and Gong fuselage to get benefits of my Gong wings.

Thanks

I use epoxy resin, and same carbon fibre. For screw hole i made speacer from stainless pipe (see foto)
First screw hole is oryginal(frot wing side). Second must drill.

Bought the Foil (original surf wing M) including board 4'6. also ordered an extra fuselage to enable the wings with the Moses mast like TS.

Tried the foil/board combi this weekend. Much easier to ride than anything I have ridden before. I was able to do carve to toeside and back on this first session, something I did not succeed in with the faster and less stable foils I have used before. Considering that the wind was not stable and I had to switch from 9m to 6m Boxer during the session and there was a fair bit of chop.... I think this set will prove to be a very cost effective investment in my foiling progression.

^ same here with M-size gong surf classic foil. Never been able to carve to toeside or ride toeside(in 2.5 years..), but with gong I was able to do it at the first try! Everything is so easy with this setup..

You can still do faceplants if you want... it just takes a bit more effort...

So how is the quality of the new Gong foils? How is the weight? Have they abandoned the idea of carbon struts completely?

The line-up of foils makes perfect sense to me. The concept seems to be based on the Go-Foil design. Their commitment to a comprehensive product line is impressive - assuming the quality is there.

What is the screw spacing in the slot of the Moses Carbon fuselage ? I suppose the gong fuselage screw spacing had to be be aligned onto this dimension.
What is the screw spacing in the slot of the Gong fuselage before the modification ? I want to know if the gong fuselage had to be redrilled to Moses mast screw spacing.

The light carbon version of strut + mast will be available next MArch (2020) according to their site. That will definitely make a comprehensive product line.
