Wyatt - are the infinity wings compatible with last year's Hover Glide fuselage/rear wing? Or in other words, can I reuse any part of the Hover Glide kit, or do I need to go to the new set?

So many Wyatt questions.
Here's what it looks like to me:
Gamma 68 = H2 = Fwind1
Warp speed = H3
Space skate = H4
Time Code 57 = H5 = Fwind2
The Time Code 68 must have tons of lift.

Yep all the Infinity wings go on the Hoverglide / FWind Setup. Just a new naming system really.

Wyatt, the Infinity 76 while it rides great it didn't seem like completely different wing than the Gamma 68 or H2. I was wondering about how the Infinity 84 would compare to the H2. I really like the smaller sail concept. So, if you were on the H2 with a 5.2 sail what would be your sail size using the Infinity 84? 4.5, 3.7?

I feel like there is still a perfect sail for the windspeed...not the wing.

I like to have some power in my hands, so I'm not pumping like crazy every time I come off the foil. But of course I don't want to be overpowered and have a hard time being backwinded or pulled like crazy into my carves.

So I guess I still think you want the same size sail for any of the bigger wings.

The smaller wings I like to be a tad more powered for sure. But then I am focusing on jumping.

Have you done any testing for absolutely minimum wind speeds?

I need a solid 11-13kts with a 7.2 and the H2 wing. I don't mind the sail size but if I could get that wind speed down to 7-9kts then it opens up a lot more days close by.

Wyatt, let me try to rephrase. Say you're out on a 4.5 sail and a H2 wing and the wind drops a bit so you're working too hard to stay on a foil. So, from you comment you would rig a 5.2 rather than staying on the 4.5 and putting in a bigger wing?

I like the slingshot wings and there known durability/quality. Windance has a foil works foil that is almost identical to the slingshot fwind1 foil but slightly cheaper.
It has a switch fuse and uses what looks to be the h2 wing.
The mast is also 90 cm like he slingshot mast. I was wounding if anyone has used this foil works foil with any of the new 2019 slingshot wings particularly the infinity 84.
I was told the 84 only fits 2/3 the way up the fuse. They say with some sanding this wing could fit how much, I donno.

But if one were to sand the fuse to fit the slingy 84 wing would the stock wing that comes with the foil works foil still fit?
Has anyone been able to fit this wing on the foil works brand foil?

I read that foil works brand foils are there own brand(line) of "modular" foils. They say new parts will come availble as the sport progresses.

Wyatt,
Talk about freestyle sails for foiling? I have been very impressed with NP Wizard for early planning and power vrs wave sails. I think I saw some pics with you on Freeks?? Can you detail any impressions on why freestyle sails are effective or not vrs a longer boom sail for foiling specifically.
