Sorry, i ment Wave XL not XXL. I edited my post now.
Thank you for all your answers, keep them coming...
Aaaah, the Ketos WaveXL. It is 790 cm2 quite low AR.
The Onda 633 is extremely low AR, and apparently (according to grigorib having measured) around 1190 cm2 so MUCH bigger and should maybe be compared to a XXL
I know the wing profile makes a huge difference too, but size can be used as a rough guideline often, when you got nothing else.
The Ketos WaveXL (790 cm2 AR 4.2) is my most used wing (out of 5 wings), and when windier I also change to the Wave wing (570 cm2 AR 4.4), for having more speed and also loads of agility - soooo lively too.
In less wind (REALLY low wind) I would sometime use a higher AR wing, as 4.2 is not the best upwind as drag increases the lower you go in AR, and below 4 the max lift also start to suffer more and more.
But in most conditions the low AR wings are great for playing around, which many has discovered now, thus happy with both the Onda and WaveXL wings.
Moses Onda 633 (1190 cm2 AR 3.3) seems like a very different wing in both size and AR in itself, and should maybe be compared to the not released Ketos XXL (Aile1200) ?
Dont know and can definitely not compare how they ride, compared.
Would just list the surface and span (well, AR that says more than span) so some rough data to compare.
