looks like the 695 is a good complement to the 633...
I’d say 720 would compliment 633 or 790 nicely to stick with the same fuselage

what about difference of 718 to 695 ? If i am looking for complement to 633 and will use 91cm mast...
these 2 wings are so close in area. I´d like to know difference in low speed, top speed and stability.
is 101 mast needed for 718 ?
I rode 720 (side by side with 683s) which must be pretty identical to 718 and with large stabilizer it was quite early to plane and could go pretty slow (and reasonably fast). It didn’t struck me in means of average speed or top speed, it rather surprised me that 740 sq.cm wing could go pretty similar to 1005 sq.cm 683s. Except it rode much more roll stable, way more stable than I’m even looking for.
When I put 325 with 720 - it suddenly changed to pitch unstable and lost the lowend. So stabilizers matter.
Rode it with 105cm mast I ride in deep water and it was very satisfying.
Now as of 718 vs 695
I ride 590/647/330 set and I bet on slightly larger 695 wing and 425 stabilizer to be used on kite fuselage and I hope it’s going to be my favorite, most ridden set of 2020 - with more lowend compared to 590 and more high end stability compared to 330 stabilizer set
My only concern is that 718/720/695 have pretty dull leading edge outline (unlike 633) so they will not work well in seaweed infested water.
I’m planning to take 695/425 to La Ventana end of January so i hope it’ll rock. Will share my feedback and folks are welcome to demo it
