Custom. Same wing-stabilizer spacing as 749 but mast forward.
Respect for the professional clean work. :thumb:
Would you or who ever produced this black beauty think about building further moses custom fuselages, for example a short mono to mount strut over the wing?
Or maybe share the 3D raw data of the two conection forms? Thanks
I can get a 743 fuselage to anyone interested. It features mast positioned 40mm forward compared to 749 which allows:
- using existing fixed holes on a board to be able to ride 633/790/873 and not having to drill new ones further to the back of the board
- not moving mast when switching between 590 and 633
What is cost grigorib?

Hmmmmmmm.......That “743” sure looks like a custom fuselage I just got from Jim Stringfellow. He personally builds them and sells them direct to anyone interested for $265 shipped in the US. Maybe I’m confused, and you’re referring to a different supplier/manufacturer

Just rode mine today for the first time with the 633/483/71cm/120cm Groove Skate. Very nice. Jim says it’s about 6 ounces lighter than the original. Haven’t weighed it yet but it feels much lighter

When you get a chance, can you weigh it for us please. Thanks!

Ok, I get 896 grams for the stock (old) Moses fuselage and 717 grams for the Stringfellow fuselage. That’s 11 oz. You can see how much father forward I mounted the mast on my Grove Skate. Normally I’d have it mounted with the rear plate screws almost pegged against the back of the track with the older stock fuselage

Mine is Stringy’s too. I just needed to give it a name, and since it measured 743mm long, it’s a good name

Moses 749 fuselage 893g
Stringy’s 743 fuselage 989g

I think it’s pretty useful for Moses board owners or for anyone doesn’t want to move mast switching between the wings.

You might want to check those weights. No way does that Stringfellow fuselage weigh more than the 749! I measured again: 719 grams for the Stringy, 900 grams for the 749

Anyone in the world can give us a review of the 790 wings that tried it?

I did weigh them on same scale when I got 743
Jim called me a week ago and he mentioned that he changed fuselage design a tad and made it lighter.
Well, unfortunately after I bought mine back in April.

I can’t say that I felt weight difference.
Getting my 710 tomorrow and the 743 is available for sale unless someone snaps it away from me locally.
