Yuk....did not like the 450...the AOA is massive...I was practically standing on the nose with the 720.... wish they could have left it flat....
I shimmed mine and reaping benefits of winglets pointed up
450 is unstable at speed and noticeably slower when used with the 633,
and not good at all for boosting even leading to crash outs just before take off if really loading up fast and hard, horrible!
450 is fantastic in lower winds in the waves, carves deep and hard, so much fun that is very noticable.
if your using all foot straps and pushing for speed and boosting fully locked down, and want great acceleration then the 483 is a must use, not bothered and ride strapless,then the 450 maybe is best.
but one 15minuite session will not reveal the upsides and downsides, it took me near two days to fully understand what was happening, and find out why my boosting ability had suddenly gone in reverse, and speed runs had gone from totally smooth and stable quickly hitting maximum speed without worry or wobble, to trying to keep from crashing out due to severe instability which just got worse the harder i tried to push through it, which became impossible even making me jump off a few times to check for weed on my wings and mast.
Marmite wing for me.
