Yup.....constantly installing a foil on a board can actually ruin the mast track....my last dwarf left track cracked and fell off from tightening after 8 months.....

:nooo:

My understanding is the first generation of Naish Abracadabra worked ok but developed slop over time. They say the new one is better.

Quick Flight looks like a variation on the same theme. Hopefully it will be better than the first Naish and at least as good as the new one.

Honestly the market going to aluminium foils and track mounts is absurd. They only do it because it is a little bit cheaper and they're trying to get market share.

I have carbon foils with deep tuttle mast connections. I do a full assembly every session. I have two masts and two foils and they have about 250 sessions each. No sign of wear. No problems. Amazingly light weight. No real maintenance. I sand out scratches in the wings. I replace the screws every 100 sessions or so. Torx screws seem to last much better.

The cost of a full kit is only a few hundred dollars more than aluminium.
