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

I assume that you lost the W800 wing and fuselage after this snapped. Any chance you could dive down to retrieve it?

I recently bought a W800 wing. I've not used it yet but this makes me nervous to try any hard carves! Can I ask how much you weigh DAnderson?

Still no deeper review or comparission of w800 or w1000 with other Moses wings? It means Moses sold just few these wings during two month? The same silence was with 425 stab when for months nobody write full reviews and this stab is very rare. So it mean i think its really that moses sold very small amoint of them.

Yes lost. Did dive after it w/ gear w/in a few hours but unable to locate it due to weekend boat traffic making the search too risky.

I am ~180#, but the rider when this happened is ~220#.
I had ridden it for a dozen sessions on the 91cm & this was the first time attached to the 101.
Unfortunate, as it quickly became my favorite Moses wing to date.
Almost as slow as the 633, easily faster, & more adept to pump/carve.
I only rode it w/ the 420.
