Side note DIY:
I took a Slingshot/Moses non-surf fuselage and mounted the 483 stabilizer with my 590. This required 20 minutes of very careful filing work on the fuselage as the 483 is built for a Moses surf fuse. You get it to seat in perfectly. This has made the 590 setup lift up onto it's plane much faster, it has made freestyle/footswitches much easier.
Cheating? Probably.
I've used it on my Kanaha shape 38 and 42 pocket boards strapless.
In the video above Fred Hope is almost always on his 590 Moses/Slingshot (without the 483)

It looks like Fred Hope uses a 111cm mast in the video above.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of a longer mast?

Sweet, awesome, and thanks!

I bought the "quiver" of Moses wings and I've been working thru them all. My 637 and 420 are still in their wrappers! I was riding the 590 a lot when the wind was good, and riding the 633 a lot for fun, or in crappy winds, or when it is cold. So I've been eyeing that 637 and wondering (for far too long) if I could ride it. I have a new T22 board coming, and I hope to be riding it on that. Not totally sure of the mast placement yet but I'm super stoked to see it can be ridden strapless and on a micro board. Thanks!

You should not wait, 637+420 is fast but also easy in my opinion.
Its very stable and has quite some lift I think.

Thanks. I already bought the wings! Just need to ride them! They intimidate me!

But I'll give it a whirl very soon!
