I sold off my 633 last week after riding the 683S for several months now...I went back to the 633 last month and it was too draggy...
sold your 633 :o
that is a move I won't be making.
my 683 is more likely to go, and that's not very likely.

steve will be receiving his 720 wing very soon so speed data will be available as soon as,
he also has the 633 and 683, and has access to my 790,I will test out the speed of the 790 soon, but i don't expect anything much over 20mph.
the 633 and 683 on the 101 mast with all surfaces including the mast given the stealth treatment (all matt surfaces)
and locked down stance in 3 straps and comparing the wing speed using all kites sizes from 15mtr to 5mtr, all foil kites in appropriate winds for each size.
the speeds were very consistent over the long test time collecting the data, just about 2 knots between them on every test.
however two things did affect the top speed numbers.
using a small 5mtr foil kite in strong winds added another 1 knot for both wings.
and the other surprise was adding another knot when the mast was treated to the flat matt finish, which added an extra smooth sensation when pushing the upper limit.
the average top speed before matting down the mast was 633=24kts, 683= 26knts.
so where will the 720 wing sit??
that's the question for me before I consider buying one, I am lucky to be able to try before I get too excited.

The top speed I have seen gps verified when using a 633 wing was achieved by one of my other foiling buddies
flipping 40mph|| :clap:
yes, and it raised a big cheer from the beach.
only trouble was he reached this speed as he was flying through the air after being thrown from the board at the same time as looping the kite in very strong winds of 35mph gusts. but its still just over 40mph!

Any more feedback on the 720 wing for kitesurf, as a wing to compliment the 633?

The 720 arrived today, but won’t have chance until Friday to get out on it 😕. I expect the 720 to be as fast if not faster than the 683 but with with improved stability?????

FYI, I hit 21knots on Colin’s 790 wing. At this speed it was like being on a rail track! I’m sure I can get it up to 23 knots on a windy day with a longer mast and short lines. Therefore, by no means is it a slow wing! The fastest I’ve been on the 633 is 26 knots and 28.5 on the 683. So all in all not a massive difference between them.

I would certainly expect the 720 to be faster than the 683s, being both higher aspect ratio and 25% smaller surface area, and thinner profile (Shame that moses don't state the profile thickness or volume of their wings like other brands do)

720 wing stats:

683S wing stats:

I avoided buying the 683s wing as it seems too similar in size and shape to the 633 wing. But I'm thinking (hoping) that the 720 will be different enough to be worth considering and a good wing for high-speed straight-line cruising and upwind exploring.... then the 633 will be my more playful wing for waves and carving etc..

I'm considering either the 720 or 683S wing as a faster alternative to my 633 wing.

Does anyone have any direct comparisons between these 2?
It's landed :thumb:
Will now start testing when conditions permit and Steve gets back from work, as it's his wing.
Hopefully Friday
