Sabfoil/Moses - 799 vs 633 for kiting

Postby addictedtofoil » Sun Jul 04, 2021 3:52 am

Any feed back on the 799 wing for kiting? How does it compare to the 633?

I guess it should be faster as higher AR, but less maneuverable as wider.

Interested to hear feedback from experienced riders who have tried both.

Thanks

799 is a lot more pitch unstable as it uses the s399 stab. I would say at least as maneuvrable, wing is closer to the mast with new HS fuselage and is thinner so easier to turn around. Low speed lift is quite similar as it is higher aspect

Overall a great wing!

I use the 400 with the 633, makes it more fun than the 483, but 483 better in light winds.

How does the 633 feel on the HS700, it would certainly liven it up more being closer to the mast verves the old 710?

Havent tried the 633 on new fuse. Should liven it up and reduce front foot pressure.

W799 can go faster than 633, and more lift at low speed. (Can dockpump)

First session on 799/400 combo with Chrono V3 11m in 9-13knots, abrupt lift but once you get use to it, it's a great foil, fun and agile with a very low stall speed, makes the 633 short of redundant I guess.
