This was literally an “on the beach” twist the fuse to see how stiff and light the mast is” deal. Two SS riders were testing out new kites and foils. I didn’t get to ride them. Both were the 730 wings on the 102 masts.

Solid Build ! I am very impressed with the Phantasm foil lineup. I have 2 sessions on the PFH 633 , it is much stiffer and more durable feeling vs the previous GW version.

Stoked to see multiple mounting holes in the base. Really adds a lot of versatility for different wing options that need fore and aft adjustment for center of lift.

The front wing appears to be mounted to the fuselage with 3x screws like Moses. I'm wondering if the new Slingshot Phantasm fuselage will be compatible with Moses wings too? If wings were interchangeable it would be a big incentive to buy the new Phantasm mast and fuselage.

Please could somebody measure the bolt spacing, and also check the curvature of the fuselage compared to the Moses equivalent?

That mast laminate looks messed up. Or is it the image compression?

I think it is very messed up just above G in SLINGSHOT.
The black areas are probably cover ups of messed ups.

I will get some better pictures . There are no blemishes in the carbon mast or wing . The photo compression and there are oily spots from when I assembled it and coated the bolts with marine grease / anti seize .

Thats what I'm referring to. I know what spread tow is. It surely doesn't look like that.
Must be something with the image compression. It should be flawless.
