Which Stab for the 720?

Postby NYKiter » Sat Feb 08, 2020 3:02 am

Finally could afford to get my hands on a 720 and have yet to ride it.

I have a 483, 450 and 325 stab....which would be best for it?

Thanks

There is no such thing as a "best" stab for a hydrofoil.

It is personal preferences only.

Do you want a more stable combo, or do you want it more lively (smaller stab)

Some like a tad more stability for jumping or tricks, some want more agility for riding waves or tricks.

A few ride without the stab :naughty:

Just try yourself to find what you prefer, or pick the largest if you have no idea :wink:

I really depends on your preference. If you want it super loose and agile then the 325. 450 will give you the most stability in all axis and have the pressure point quite far forward. The 483 gives a more balanced stabilisation, and allows for a bit of sideways slip in turns.

My personal favourite for the 720 is the s420. It's fast and loose, but not as loose as the 325.
