Its a great improvement over my moses comet, no ventilation at all at any speeds upwinds or reaching. The glide during maneuvers its longer, which is a great improvement on my tacks in 5-6 knots, i can do all maneuvers 10/10 in more than 8 knots , but under that it was quite hard to be consistent or when really under powered, now that 8 knots are 6 knots, which is all i need for those very lightwind races. I only had 3 sessions now in under 10 knots, im waiting for some wind to see how it behaves in choppy/current/ faster upwind speeds and accelerations. Lots of people talk about the packaging, quality and finish which is fantastic, but i dont really care, i just care about how good it rides.

Hi, the comet you compare with, is it the a600 or w637 or w645 ? If its 600 or 637, do you know if the new 645 is closer to the chubanga v2 in comparison with the other comet wings? Its maybe very subjective but would be nice to know how all top racefoils compare.

I compare with the 645 with the 2018 111 mast, and btw the 645 is very similar to the 637, its abit "easier" but also slightly "slower".

Awesome thanks! I'm going to break the piggy bank and buy one with my life savings :) current lead time is about 3 months, will be tough to wait that long!

Thanks! I did not know that, I'll have to follow up with him. I do love my Delta, just getting beat up now after 3 years of use and looking for something new.
