2) 633/679 has an impressive low wind performance, do you find that 800 is comparable or is it closer to 695 that needs a bit more wind then large wings.

The 800 might seem as too large wingspan-wise, but it’s also smooth and even more lowendish, yet it can scream pretty fast and be very stable at speed if one enjoys fast rides.cwood wrote: ↑Tue Jan 12, 2021 9:47 pmHey, tangent....for a female in the 150lb range....what would be similar to the 679 from a low speed perspective....695 or 800? I bought her a 679 but its still in the box....I wanted it under the tree at christmas but wasn't gonna get the fuse yet. Pisses me off to have to buy that big fuse a second time.grigorib wrote: ↑Tue Jan 12, 2021 9:37 pmI loved my 683s and 679 which are same wing. Once I rode 683s I sold my 633 and never looked back. Reached about 26 MPH one time I decided to measure top speed. Great wing yet later I switched to 695 and later to 800 because they mount on lighter, more compact 647 fuselage. Also higher aspect wings are a bit more roll stable, not that I would really care about that though.
679 is awesome but depending on your weight/style/kites/conditions you might want to consider 695 or 800.
Really, the heavy/bulky surf fuselage is something that set me back off from riding 633-683s-679. Also 483-450 stabilizers are relatively thick and not as awesome as 425
What wind does she ride now?
