Has anyone tried one of the new aluminum foils? The only thing I can find is this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFStE8Gv11o video.

Observations,
Gotta love the "used car salesman" tone.
My favorite at 13:30
"all of our stuff is the best"
15:00 "go beat those racers" I doubt it!
At least the non hydrodynamic nose to F wing connection is acknowledged concerning the foil fish and the new nose looks much better.
Nice to have 3 wings on hand.
Boards still do not have enough nose scoop and volume.
Saying that the LF alu set ups are light weight?
Track adjust seems a nice touch along with 3 strap configuration option.
Interesting that the the new carbon set up resembles known to fly well designs, curved F wing, upswept R wing tips, thinner STRUT.
And as much as I and many others loath a certain "cara" he had adjustable R wing spacing holes like a decade ago.
Anyway as most know who read here often I felt obliged to call BS concerning LFs foil fish hype marketing but must say the new designs, boards excluded, merit a test fly.
But as I live in what must still be considered the leading KBHF country, R+D, manufacturers, racers, hard to tell if we will ever even see one?
