I currently use a Moses Onda 91 for freeride foil. I'm considering a longer mast for riding in deep chop and for a bit of faster speed-run fun on smaller Moses wings and exploring (not actually serious racing).
I'm considering Moses 101 or 111 mast length.
I'm considering Moses 558 or 637 wingsets.
Can anyone give me advice on pros and cons of these 2 x mast and 2 x wingset options for fun "freerace", considering that I already own a Moses Onda 91?
Ask flag58 on here
He has loads of experience on the full moses line you mention above
His comments to me, made me stick with my 101 mast, but locations I use also play a part in that decision, my 84cm mast is the ideal length for me as a shallow water option, less length is distracting and less fun
As for the 588 wing, many of us have had them, I say had them, but not anymore, this may give some indication to how it compares with today's offerings, stability and stalling qualities, lift power, low take off speed, have moved on a lot
The new 720 wing is looking like a option for speed with stability, with low stall speed and very low take off speed (high lift)
and it fits on the standard Onda fuse
Ask steve (sfollis on here) all about that wing as it's his new wing, and he is testing it right now with different stabilizers and logging his findings,
I will most likely buy that wing later on when I can justify the cost and concentrate on using it
I have used it but I am not yet ready for it, as jumping and other basic skill sets are taking up all my water time.
The 633 is very fast when you get locked into using all the foot straps, front and back straps all the time for all points of sailing,so much more engaging and more stable, much faster average speed as well, but the foil kites I now use has a lot to do with that as well.
