UFOs and the new 657 foil seem to have replaced his SSTs and the old 590 foil.

received a slingshot email about fred hope’s brazil hydrofoil win and the gear he used- but shows sentry bar. clearly in his competition photos he’s not using the center pu depower lines and no way since apparently the bar only has a disappointing 17inches of depower. photos look like sentry bar but super long rope depower. looks like a custom bar setup - anyone know?

It's a customized Sentry bar. There are better pics of it on his instagram, here are two examples:



It's an old-style centerline swivel with no flagout.

The mast and back stabilizer look nothing like the 657 phantasm...Looks more like he is using the older slingshot carbon setup with maybe a custom front wing. Surprised Slingshot are advertising the 657 is what he rides.

I thought the same thing.

I'd love to see some video of Fred ripping it up on the new foils, particularly the 657 as well as the 730 for comparison.

It’s 657 wing, 100cm Dwarfcraft 2021, customized bar and UFOs. Pictures are pretty self-descriptive
