The Bar boom is here to stay,

I have seen two brands developing different boom options.

So for now I see three brands :wink: at least if you already want to call Eleveight a wing brand even if for now they just have anounced one wing size.



and if having a look at Cabrinha not just with their stick-handles but also with one strut as direct canopy support and a secound strut for the handles, they are also maybe more close to Duotone, Ullman and Eleveight's concepts, then to wings with handles.

@downsouth:
Thanks, this proto looks pretty much as the one I tried as I remember.

Released on the 31st March. The 5.5m Slick with a 330g carbon mini boom is very slightly lighter than the 6m Unit.

Nice to see several working on this, I find booms so much better in every way, apart from the very "feel" that is awesome, that I wont go for handles, even if I were offered a shitload of good wings for free :naughty:

Yes, it might be oldschool and we could be a minority (or ahead of the time?), but I am loving it - a few weeks ago, it is close to zero degrees but you cant help foiling all winter, when there is no ice on the sea :

The Epic kites wing and Cabrinha Manits wing both have boom handles that are pretty good. It makes me think this style boom-ish design has promise.

Anybody else had a ride on the EPIC wings? Commenta?
Or the cabrinha Mantis?

Still no one has tried any of the SHINN wings or foils?

Would be much obliged to get a bit more feedback... I feel I'm a total expert on Axis gear although I've never owned or ridden them.. But we sure are SPOTTY on info for the other brands! 😁🤔

Good winds all!
