I have lots off time on my 633 wing and 483 stab but lately, I feel for more speed and looser foil in the moses lineup.
I don't know if just changing the stab for S400 will do the job or should I get a new wing?
please share your experience!
try the 425 stab if you can. for me it the perfect stab for the 633 in terms of balance (front foot pressure) and speed (faster then the 450 I used first)
I hope to try my 425 rear stabilizer with my 633 front wing, have tried most of the smaller stabs and apart from the 450 they were not great and many of us who tried them agreed to bin the sessions we were on when using the smaller stabs and revert back to the 483,
the 450 will work well for strapless guys who want a looser feel in waves for snappy carving, but at the cost of poor stability at higher speeds especially using straps and for guys like me who jump, as this really showed the 450 stab as very poor, crashing out under load just before take off,
So todays try of the smaller425 stab will hopefully confirm if my. 483 is really the best for speed and stability,
On the same subject of speed from the 633, if anyonec thinks it's slow then maybe you are not getting the best from it, slow it Is not!
Measure your speed and if everything else is good for speed like footstraps front and rear, correct netural trim, super clean working surfaces, both mast and wings, no finger marks, seaweed sap,suntan or bolt grease residue, chips or scratches on leading edges, the list is long of possible reasons why you can't get near the superb top speed of the 633,
26-27 knts is not slow, that feels very fast but if any thing is not quite right like any of the above, even a singing whineing mast then stability will be compromised and speed will suffer, but get things right and fast silent smooth speed is available,
But I agree with others that using the top speed to turn aggressively hard into turns can push the 483 stab just too hard and end in the rear wing loosing grip, if you have crystal clear water then it's interesting to look round at the rear stab as you turn hard and fast, turn hard enough and you will clearly see a long stream of air bubbles appear from the rear stab edges as you turn harder, release the foot pressure slightly for a wider turn and the bubbles deminish and stability returns,
This is where I want to see improvement, and I have experienced it only when using the 450 stab, but the cost was too high in terms of speed( lack of stability in straight line speed )
