6m only. Figure the rest out after you wing a lot and determine your personal range, likes and dislikes in a wing.

I'm 105 KG.
6M ensis Is my wing for under around 18 knots. It has a deep profile and is powerful. Not fun to hang onto if it's getting past 20 though.
I have a 5.3 Naish which has minimal profile. It will do from about 16 to squalling wind speed. I'll probably trade it for a 4m with more profile and power in time though.

If you have stable trade winds I'd just go with a deep profile 5m wing. I don't :lol:

At your weight, you want to get wing/foil/board size right.

What size board and foil are you going to use?

For my first setup, I am considering a 150 LTS board and a Moses foil with 2100cm2 and 1580cm2 wings. Please give me your thoughts.

That will be a great board to start on and learn the basics of wing foiling. Use the 2100cm2 as this will also make it easier.
As you improve your balance, you will probably get a smaller board closer to 130 LTS.....

I am roughly 105 to 110 kg and primarily use a 7m wing for 12-17 knots and then a 5m wing above that.

The most important thing at our weights is that the wing does not flex during pumping. My experience is with V1 Gong, V2 Naish, V1/V2 Duotone, V1 WASP and BRM Cloud. The Duotone, WASP and Cloud were the best BIG man wings.

Than you for sharing your experience. I will probably buy the Duotone Unit 06 wing.
