Happy to see no Windows.

Who can provide more information on the "Matrix Handle Change System"

Price point will be interesting.

Yeah,its steep :)
But the new F one Strike is 800 to 1080€
Armstrong A Wing 919 to 1099€
And they are same old Dacron.

The key thing is wether this Aluula wing clearly outperforms everything else out there ...or not.

Do not plan on buying one blindly, but i am really hoping it improves low end performance and then becomes the new standard.
