Need to hear more on the Armstrong foils please. Trying to research the Armstrong, not much out there. Sold my Moses, is too damage prone. Thinking of going with Armstrong 800/1200, 85 cm mast, 3’11” board.
I have Moses friend has Armstrong and we are both equally happy.
So either - just make a decision and all will be good either way.

Hi Guys,

I’m in the market for a new foil, and I’m considering the Moses 633 or Armstrong 1200.

If any of you out there have kited with both, would you mind sharing your thoughts on the two?

I’m coming from a slingshot fKite setup, which includes 71 cm mast and space spaceskate (formerly h4) front wing. I ride an alien air 4’ 8” board strapless. I weight about 180 pounds.

This is my first year. I mostly ride an inland lake near my house (1 mile x 0.5 mile) and ride in 10 to 20 mph (maybe more?) winds. I fly cabrinha drifters (7 and 9m) as well as a 12m wainman.

I also kitesurf waves with a surfboard and switch from my surfboard to a hydrofoil when the wind gets light.

I’m not a speed demon - going too fast on a foil freaks me out! :)

I’m also considering getting a longer mast to avoid breaching the backside of waves and swell. Maybe an 85cm.

I’m sure it all comes down to personal preference; nonetheless, I thought I’d post this in case anyone has the time and interest to comment on their experiences between to two foils.

Cheers,
wolfieee
Where are you located. I have a friend selling an Armstrong at a good price. 1200 with 85cm wing
