Baseline 749. Length 749 cm. Weight ~900grams. Price - discontinued
Moses 710. Length 710 cm. Weight ~850 grams. Mast position - 20 mm forward from 749. Price $360usd from Mackite
Stringfellow 743. Length 743 cm. Weight ~720 grams. Mast position - 40 mm forward from 749. Price $260usd direct from Jim
(Correct me if I’m wrong on any of this)
- 710 has mast placed forward by 13mm (106-93mm measured hole to hole) compared to 749, but also stabilizer is closer to mast by 27mm which is important counterpoint and I'm not sure yet how it changes the balance (or into which side) compared to 749
- I started calling my 743 new name 743v1 and I'll call later version 743v2. Mine cost $300, I assume shipping makes difference. Jim does amazing job and I admire his creativity and works!
Neither 749 nor 743 fit into my foil bag though so I’d stick to 710 as most compact version until Moses hopefully releases 850-1000 sq.cm wing for 647 fuselage and then I’d give up on surf setup completely
However, the benefit of moved mast is awesome (especially for fixed hole boards), just as weight and cost of Stringy’s version and it’ll be useful for Dwarfcraft Micro riders too, due to track placement difference.
Last Saturday I rode 683s/710/450/105 and I had to move my feet forward by 2” compared to 683s/749/483/91. I only wonder which one of the three changes caused it (or more than one) and I’ll know in 10 days the latest unless we get good local winds before then.
