Adapter to use Moses with inexpensive Aluminum Slingshot Masts

Postby houstonkiteboarding » Tue Mar 05, 2019 9:14 pm

For all you Moses riders. Foilmount recently released an adapter that allows you to use slingshot masts on your Moses. So if you want a short mast for those shallow water days, or learning, you can use a 60 dollar slingshot mast with an 80 dollars base plate, instead of getting a short Moses mast for hundreds of dollars.

That's nearly 30 inches though, which is still pretty long and... it's going to be nearly $1100... With this, you could use a 30 inch slingshot mast, with adapter and base plate for $240. But also, this gives you the option to use shorter masts.

Any chance you have an adapter in the works that will work with alu mast on the Lift Foil?

Great product! Looks like some drag at the base. But still....good.

Folks who can afford Moses tend to stick with carbon...

I am developing an adapter for Project Cedrus that will allow it to work with Lift wings (3D printed fitment check below). It is already compatibility with Moses, Slingshot, and LF. So for those of you looking for a stiffer and lighter mast than moses, lift, and aluminum... check it out: http://www.projectcedrus.com

That exists here but not sure you can get it separately... When asked politely, everything is possible :wink: :wink:
If not, as it looks like a small KF box (ie tapered on the 4 faces), replicate the original LIFT mast stub (caliper) or pot it/make a mold, get some (or apply your) 3D skills and have it milled online or at your local workshop. Always remove 1 to 1.5mm from the bottom of your molded piece otherwise you won't get a perfect adjustment on the 4 faces (same as Tuttle and deep Tuttle which have only 2 tapered faces)

^^^ that would deliver a hard blow to Slingshot/Naish/LF aluminum line but also provide them with great gear to rebrand.

Complete Onda for $900, that cost less than their mast...
