Thinking of getting a second free ride foil.not wanting to spend big $$ thinking Alumium foil that's fun and easy to ride and can handle well when wind picks up.thinking naish,axis,north
already have carbon mosses race and would be good to be able to have free ride foil that will be compatible with Moses t38 board.keen to hear people's taught

I've been through a few companies including Moses and now I'm happy with Axis gear. They have a huge range of wings that fit 3 types of fuses so you would need advice as to which one/s to go for. They have so many options can be hard to pick what's right for you without guidance.

If you really detail what you're looking for that could help with specifics - like your weight, kites, type of riding, wind range targetted, preferred foil speed etc. I think the t38 has standard rails with 90mm spacing so most foils should be compatible.

If you don't mind the deep tuttle connection then I highly rate the J Shapes Cruzer foil with the 95cm mast.

www.jshapes.com/collections/kite/products/cruzer-foil

The mast and foil together are just under $2000. Carbon sandwich. Very light. Very tough. I use mine in flat water and waves in anything between 10-50 knots.

Why not just get a 710 or 700 fuse for the Moses and look at 679/683/633/940 front wing and a 450/483 stab and use the same mast?
Or keep the fuse set up and add a w695/1000/800 for less speed more lift. Lots of our guys in Perth have one mast with a kite set up for race/fast freeride and a surf set up for cruising/surf.

Yeah could do,I'd like to have a shorter mask as my local is shallow and the price of a mosses mast is nearly the price of a axis complete free ride foil.unless i could get my hands on a used 82cm mast cheap ??

there is an adapter for Moses fuse to slingshot mast you can use


I have 60, 90 cm slingshot and 111 Moses masts and bunch of wings ...
Moses is not better than anyone else if you look at a specific component like mast, wing, fuse etc but considering the wing and mast options plus second hand market, knowledge base, its a pretty compelling argument to go with Moses until Slingshot come up with the full range and someone like Gunnar to promote the products

Note: Moses aluminium mast doesn't fit 700 or 710 fuse and 700 is for big wings and heavier
Track vs Tuttle : no need to argue here- for non racers tracks are the preferred choice unless you know exactly what wing/mast/style you want to ride....I ride Axis board with 633 and 637 wings ..try doing that with a fixed point
