I have the moses mast and slingshot masts with the great new adapter and it works just great on a board with tracks,
your moses T60 has just 4 holes, the base plate from slingshot has 2 sets of hole spacing, if it will not fit then extending 2 holes or drilling a new 2 holes will be easy to do, the width is the same at 90mm,
or opt for a track conversion at around 160 euro, easy for a custom shop to do, and then you can use any wing in the future as well.
I did on my old T60, glad i did,much better

Contact Jim Stringfellow and he’ll make you a 165x90mm mast plate for Slingshot mast. It will be also lighter than original

He also makes amazing mast to fuselage adapter

Jim is awesome and Slingshot should be paying him to design things. They need to shed at least 1/2 weight of current fuselage (and they still can keep it compatible with Hoverglide)
