Not slow as the speed many of us go all the time
If your frontwing would stall at such small angle changes as 2-3 degrees it would be very hard to kite or fly at all.
Thank you, was wondering about the 720.... there is some very slight pitch instability with 330 & 683 that I noticed, and I cant crank a backside turn as there seems to be no resistance from the tail and I plop in the water - not sure whats going on, perhaps the bigger stab will push back when you crank on a turn at very low speed?grigorib wrote: ↑Sun Oct 27, 2019 6:51 pmI tried 330 and 325 with 633 and 720 and I didn’t like it at all. And I know some people do like it. Foil flew faster but became overly pitch sensitive. I think a larger stabilizer like 420 or 425 would be a better choice.
Small stabilizer demand higher takeoff speed and I could feel it right away
That was from my 720 (746 sq.cm) wing comparison side-by-side with 450 and 325 stabilizers. I felt that with large stabilizer I could just push on the board with both feet and get up on the first dive. Surprisingly as easy as on larger 683s (1005 sq.cm.) wing.

When I tried 325 it felt that it "falls through" on me and I needed some speed to go - the feeling was very much like feeling of riding 590.
One thing I should have done is to move mast forward for use with a small stabilizer and I think it would have helped. But I also know that smaller wing feels funny after riding a large one for a while.
I wish I could demo a 425 stabilizer. I absolutely agree that small stabilizer or stabless feels faster and less draggy - I could feel it in both cases.
