Slingshot has not released any info yet. The above PDF is not confirmed.

Sorry, but stay tuned still for the correct info.

Looks like MOSES 2019 line. However, the masts have one huge advantage over MOSES - no need to buy an iron.

I heard about the plans for it from our local shop owner. He told me to hang on before jumping on the Moses bandwagon. All I know unfortunately.

I make no claim to the validity of that pdf, I just googled "Slingshot Phantasm" & shared the result.

That is a large amount of SKU's. Add that to an already saturated foil market.

I confirmed from a reliable source that the info released in the PDF is not accurate. Some of it might be and some not.

For sure excited though for when the final info is released.

Very interesting comment about saturation. Having seen the growth of kiting first hand and now the introduction and growth of foiling, I personally feel foiling is in the infancy and hasn't even come close to saturation. In some areas, it might seem saturated, but there are a lot of areas it's just starting to gain steam. Add wake, surf, SUP and now wing foiling and there's a ton of growth.

Slingy hit a grand slam home run with the Hoverglide / short mast program that is affordable. Now add a carbon line-up that is complimentary and I only see positives.

They are a very smart crew with a bad ass wing designer.

It would have made great sense if Slingshot kept designing and started making wings and Moses kept making masts. I tried to reach Tony with suggestions back in May 2018 saying market full of 680 fuselages is craving for 1000 sq.cm wing mountable on kite fuselage, just to be stonewalled. Big guys have their own priorities and I’m not working for them, it’s alright.
I think making Phantasm wings mountable on surf-sized fuselage is a mistake. Wings will be sticking out way too far forward and fuselage will be heavier increasing overall weights.

I have a feeling the mast is a hard core to crack. Well, to not crack in this case and call it bad decisions or what but Slingshot could have made some money selling more carbon in the past year when they didn't.
