I'm also looking to upgrade to a faster wing to replace my spaceskate. Can anyone compare low/high end of the spaceskate vs the Apollo 60 and infinity 65? Thank you!

I’d consider H2 (Gamma 68) as upgrade option too. Higher aspect, plenty of area for kiting and costs peanuts.

Also wondering if the Apollo 60 would be a good and cheap upgrade from the spaceskate, or if I should cash out for the Moses 633.

The Apollo is not a cheap option comparing to the older wings mentioned. Still less expensive than switching all to moses. There is also an option to get the moses wings and fuselage adaptor to keep using the alu mast.

...
- When I use this front wing with my kite I feel that I have to put too much force on my back foot and almost nothing to my front foot, so should I move my plate to front or back of my board?
...
Move your mast forward by 1.5-2” and adjust from there
I followed your advice and the result was great.
Actually I just moved 1.5" , next time I will try 2", at 2” I will reach full mast forward.
Will this setup help me with foot change and tack?
