I'm wondering why you think the new Carafino is not fast. In my experience it was plenty fast but felt a bit slower than my Augera, however that is very hard to determine for two reasons:
1. The only day I rode it I did not have a GPS and I did not ride my Augera that day to compare. The comparison would not be fair in any case since the Carifino wings I was using were much larger and lower aspect than what I am used to.
2. I have not ridden the Carafino, or know anyone with a Carafino, who has ridden with the high aspect race wings. All the Carafino owners here are pretty new at foiling and are sticking with the low aspect large wings.
We won't know if the Carafino foil and wing is fast until one of the top experienced riders gives it a go.
And, speed is not desirable for everyone. My Augera is crazy fast, stable and easy to ride. But even then, at my advanced age, the high velocity is a bit scary, and occasionally the high speed wipe outs can hurt.
