With a longer Cedrus mast (95), will the Triton still lay on it's side and take off up wind after the crash?

Likely no. But hey I would do a lot of body dragging to save save $1000. Just saying…

Yes, it still stays on its side. (I was one of the first to ride this combo back in February.) As someone who has always had floaty foils, let’s just say I’m pretty good at my body dragging!

Same, a few years with the 633.... but this last year was on the Stingy Wave which sinks so now I'm back to pro-bodydrag style.

I demo’d a friends Triton T1. Choppy 13-18knots with 5m UFO kite. After 5min I could gybe, tack, foot switch, and do small jumps.

Pros:
+ It doesn’t pitch down at speed like regular wings when stab removed.
+ It recovers from breaching very well.
+ It is very loose in pitch/yaw and maneuverable.
+ Fairly easy to ride for Mono.
+ easy to water start, decent low end. Can kind of “stomp” it up onto foil.

Cons:
- It is a bit slow, draggy, and power hungry
- Upwind angle is poor
- It floats on it’s side (doesn’t bother me but con to some).
- Very sensitive pitch (like all Mono)
I don't think it feels "a bit, slow, draggy and power hungry". Perhaps, if you're used to a race foil, but compared to a regular "surf foil" it doesn't feel draggy at all - to me it feels very undraggy. However, it also doesn't invite you to drive the foil fast upwind like a stabbed foil.

That was my exact feeling as well, good review but acknowledging where OP came from. I've owned and tried a bunch of kite foils. Compared to a race foil it's slow and draggy. Compared to a big surf wing it's power hungry. Compared to a middle of the road freestyle kite foil, it's none of those things. To me it's comparable to the Axis HPS700 which was my previous favourite wing, but with a looser and free-er feeling, similar power demand, similar top speed, similar upwind, perhaps slightly better bottom end. And a lot less weight.

Made a quick vid here with 2 T1/chip combos and an Axis tray 94/660, kites are 10m A-Roam, 8m Gin Spirit, and 9m Ultra Team. Having some flat water fun in gusty 15kts.

Experimenting with burying the gopro on the beach - action is a bit far away for phones but looks ok on monitor.
