My main worry is that Nobile's mast won't fit in the Slingshot mast socket located in the wing. Getting new screws is not a problem :)
Since Nobile mast fits Slingshot plate easily, it will most likely (90% sure) fit mast socket on Slingshot fuselage/wing.

The 2019 Slingshot mounting plate will fit your Nobile Infinity Foil. Its 165 x 90cm. Previous Slingshot plates were 160 x 90cm (pretty sure).

The Nobile mast will fit in the 2019 Slingshot mounting plate. I didn't have a Slingshot fuselage handy today but It would most likely fit the Nobile mast. The Slingshot mast is slightly wider than the Nobile ,hence that's why the Nobile mast fits, being slightly narrower.

:thumb:
Thanks! Nobile mast is exactly 110mm wide, while Slingshot is 115mm, and Nobile seems less thick than Slingshot (Nobile is 15mm, no idea about Slingshot). Is it OK to have this extra space?
Also, I hope the threads in the mast will align well, in Nobile, the distance is 50mm.

my slingshot mast fixing holes run through the mast from top to bottom, you can look through the mast using the hole alignment,
the hole spacing in the 2 photographs is so far out from the end points it surely can't fit the fuse, can it?
unless the 51mm hole centers will somehow work leaving big gaps around the edges,
That Nobile mast is full of open spaces for water to find a home to occupy, the Slingshot one is more sealed off.

I’ve had both, it’s close but they don’t match.

I am wondering whether it’s possible to fit a fuselage (+wings) from Slinghot, Liquidforce, Naish or other on a Nobile mast.
I would like to get a lightwind set and keep using my Nobile Infinity board with both 60 and 90cm masts.

I would appreciate your comments!
Hi Mike, I have the same issue. Have you thought about buying the GONG SURFOIL ALLVATOR 65 M

https://gongsupshop.com/epages/box1707. ... LLSURFCPTM

It is made for surfing, but people also use it for kiting in the smallest version (wing 70 cm). Good reviews and very affordable. The fuselage would most probably not fit the Nobile mast, but at that price you can also get the mast and the base plate I am sure will fit the Nobile Infinity Board.
