I'm quite excited about the new carbon masts mostly and also, but to a lesser extent, their new wings.

The foils look great.

Seems pricey, but Slingshot has (IMO) a reputation for pretty solid products - not necessarily the lightest.

I'd love to hear about some weights when they become available. And reviews of course from foilers without an interest in selling the product.

Fred won GKA foil 2020 on 657 wing. It’s a sweet upgrade to 590
I was thinking the same. And was wondering if the Slingshot wings will eventually be sold separately

Feedback from a friend is that the Slingshot Phantasm wings aren't nearly as lightweight as the equivalent Moses wings. I'm guessing that the Phantasm wings don't use the same or similar full pre-preg carbon construction type as Moses.

Does anyone have insight as to the construction type of the Phantasm wings? I wonder if they are a pre-preg carbon like Moses? Or a injection moulding carbon like North/ Duotone use?

The carbon looks/finish and foil elements design look extremely similar to Lift

I agree. Not sure what construction Lift use either though.

Notice that the SS Phantasm wings have a matt black finish and do not show any carbon weave. The mast shows carbon weave, but not the wings.

Any insights into releases of the modular components rumored early in the year?

I’m aiming to pick up a 80ish cm mast by spring for more surfy days with either the phantasm 633 or Moses 633/679 and trying to decide if one is better than the other as an ecosystem to build on as more innovation occurs. Sounds like phantasm is pretty rock solid, but so is the Moses 72/82. Might just be comparing apples to apples here, not sure
