thanks for the info...currently i have a gofoil kai/iwa 1.0Kitemanmuc wrote: ↑Fri Sep 06, 2019 8:23 pmI have em all. These foils are specially made for surf foiling and lesser for kite foiling. If you are more in to kiting, I would recommend the MFC kit. The Armstrong quality is top top notch and the ride is incredibly smooth. The wing will explode though if you even breach just a little bit and as mentioned above already the foil is on the slower side. Its glide is incredible and the turning sharp and precise and the kit you are getting with the wing covers and and and, is second to none. It really depends what style of riding you are doing. Let me know some details and I may be able to point you in the right direction.
Cabrinha and LF are total garbage. Moses is great for variety. I love my 550 wing. It’s my go to on windy days. The Lift 170 is a great foil. Reminds me of a 633 but with more speed and nimbleness. The Armstrong is a different animal. It’s a great foil. Bomb proof. But as mentioned before I would gear it more towards surf foiling rather than kite. The MFC and the Armstrong are VERY similar but I would say the MFC is a little better in the kiting discipline vs Armstrong but Armstrong has its nose ahead in the surf department.hudstur wrote: ↑Sat Sep 07, 2019 2:10 amI have had the Cabrinha Double Agent, LF Happy Foil, Lift and Moses 633/483 71/91cm masts. Sold em all and looking for somewhere to buy the Armstrong 800/1200 wings, 85cm mast, and 3’11” board. Saw the Armstrong, not demo’d yet, and it is well built. Heard a guy in Fiji stuck it in a reef, pryed it out and no damage. Just got tired of having to be so careful with other carbon fiber delicate foils. Please keep this thread alive so we can get more feedback.
If it’s for strapless the 85 will be plentyDRAZ99 wrote: ↑Fri Sep 06, 2019 7:02 pmI'm considering an Armstrong foil CF800+1200 wing. I like everything about the setup but am concerned about the 85cm mast.
Do you think it is long enough?
Coming from a 100cm at the moment.
No way to try it locally, may get the chance to try a Moses but that's about it.
