Still waiting for my order, hopefully next week i will ride it and will be able to compare with the 633 (not 683).

I'm interested a review also. I'm 150 pounds and I'd heard from sources that the 790 works better if you are a bit larger than me.

I test it today ,but the conditions where difficult :guesty wind 10 to 20 something kn. and to much seeweed.I ride it on 91 cm mast with 749 fuselage.
I can only compare with 633 /790 wing.Kite was an 8m Ultra.It comes early on plane ,that was a surprise ,it tacks much better upwind as 633 ,it was very stable on pitch and
roll and stable on yaw, compared with 633.The speed ? I only can tell you that it feels comfortable and easy to ride. For me the 720 wing feels like a comfortable
long range wing than you want to foil distance. Just my two cents ,i am on 633 for a year ( beginner to advanced foiler). I rode it with my bigger board 142 x43 cm with
some volume at the same position as the 633 with the same stance. Front foot pressure feels a little bit higher than the 633 ( i had a shim under the 450 rear wing on both
frontwings.)

I think that Balz Müller need a very stable foil because the pumpt it like crazy with his sail before he pop up fore a new crazy trick.

You need more speed to come up ,but not much more ... so the low end is not much different from the 633.The profile is not so thin like the fast kitewings ,
so you can ride slow on the wing ( not so much as the 633) it was no problem for me.

Higher foot pressure, comes up early....this is very surprising....not what I expected at all. Will probably purchase one.
