Best Moses wing for boosting?

Postby sonny2727 » Tue Jul 14, 2020 2:10 am

Guys, Another "best" question sorry..:)
I have the Moses 637 wing and wiondering if other wings like 558 are better at boosting. Most people I talked to are happy boosting on race wings and at least one guys said 558 is wobbly, perhaps not used to carving wings. If I look at the profile of wings marketed for boosting - 558 and Lavitaz Aspec, they are quite similar shape wise. If so what am I missing here or rather will these dedicated boosting wings can previde noticable difference. I also think most hydrofoilers are not overly concerned with boosting and not much info ...

From the Moses webpage:
The 558 is a thin profile wing with moderate arc, 6.3 aspect ratio wing and 12 cm cord.

Its speed is similar to a pure race foil but with great manoeuvrability.

This wing has burning acceleration that will boost you higher than ever, cuts lines like a razor in the water. It keeps great control even when overpowered.

The 558 is a real carving machine with a performance that is accessible to riders of all levels.

race wings outperform all. Speed and ability to hold hard edge without ventilation are the key. 637, 645 are most popular here for boosting.

Any experiences with the new 670 wing?
Is it more likely to break in case of bad landing because it sits on top of the fuselage - instead of below like the other Moses wings?

I’d love to hear more comments on this they also just came out with the 671 which is the same as the 670 but works with the standard kite fuselage

I’d like the 637 for boosting more than the 600 because it doesn’t ventilate as easily so less screw ups edging upwind before boosting. But it seems I was boosting better with the 548 which is lower aspect and slower. I still need more time with the 637 to decide
