Moses W 679 / S370 setup

Postby Javierozores » Sun May 23, 2021 3:44 pm

Anyone who owns moses W679, has tried out new stabilizer S370?
I'm looking forward to get my hands on one of this stabilizer and would appreciate some feedback about this setup.... max Speed, stability, easy of use....
Is it better to go for the s400?
Thanks.

I’m curious what do you ride it with now?
A friend is riding 679 with 425 and she loves it and I kind of grew out of 679 to ride faster, more stable wings.

I'm actually riding w679 with s483, but it doesn't go much faster than w633. (I own w633 too)
A friend of mine has slingshot phantasm w633 with s400 and he goes up to 25 knots very easy... That's why I'm looking forward to buying smaller stabilizer in order to go faster.

With same stabilizer I got 683s-679 about 2 MPH faster top speed but cruising speed is higher on 679 with same stabilizer compared to 633.

A race stabilizer makes it go faster for sure. Also race stabilizer will make it feel the wing has lost some lowend yet would increase stability.

I did enjoy riding 679 with 450 stabilizer and if I rode it now I’d get RDB 310 sq.cm - thinner, winglets up and similar area to 483/450.

I switched to 695/800 for more speed instead of playing with stabilizers. Kitefoil fuselage is lighter and I can mount 1200 sq.cm wing on it.

But I’m also curious to hear about new surf stabilizer

I saw the 370 stabilizer at Pure Stoke store. It’s very flat, no winglets and it looks small.
Resembles Lift 25 stabilizer.

Friends who wing love Lift 25 so 379 might work well but I believe it will suck incredibly for kitefoiling
