an older 101 vorace w/ a 220# rider (I watched it happen)
apparently there have been generational changes to the core w/ newer ones being stronger
the w800 was one of the most enjoyable wings I have riden, bolt it to something stronger than I did

Sorry to hear that you snapped a mast!

Question regarding the new moses high aspect wings..Are the W900 and W1000 wings basically bigger versions of the W800?

I wish Moses would provide more details on their wings and the intended use.

To my understanding Moses developed what they call “race DNA” wings - 637/645/670/671/800/900/1000. The 637/645/900 are history now, the 670 needs dedicated race fuselage, but overall it’s a nicely scaled line of wings.

Of course “scaled” is an exaggeration. The width is comparatively the same while wingspan grows significantly.

I personally would love to try 1000 but I doubt I would get it - it’s way too big.

It’s awesome that they took 550 and made 548 and 695 off it. They took 637 and made 645,900,670,800,1000,671 off it.
Makes more sense than making every size a different shape/profile.

is that the 2015/16 mast that has a curve near the fuse end, or the 2017/2018 mast which is much straighter?
truly a nightmare situation, blimey! :o
