Hi Novaan
Curious how you would compare the Naish 1250 wing vs the Infinity 76?
Iím using a 2018 Naish WS1 foil, but thinking about swapping wings to the 2020 1250 wings. Looking for better in flight control and perhaps earlier foiling than what I'm using. Certainly cheaper for me to swap wings then to swap to a whole slingshot infinity set up but might consider that if the infinity is better in those respects

Thanks in advance
Jeff

I'm on the WS-1.
Lower aspect should fly more stable.
Higher aspect should be less drag and higher top speeds.
Sq in. should determine early foiling.
Low aspect should foil jibe easier.

Lots of foilers say a longer than 70 mast foils sooner and allows less chance of breaching and touching down.

76 vs. 1250......keep in mind that I learned and foiled on the SS gear for 2 years. Everything about the Naish gear is better Except maybe the 76 wing.
Foil connection, adjustable track and weight are highlights for the Naish. The 1250 wing is almost as good as the 76. It fly's early and is stable with a slow stall speed. Not as fast top speed. Some here have had de lamination issues with the 76. No reason to go SS just to get that wing. Moses foils just came out with an all carbon 85 foil. It looks to be a copy of the 76 wing and way less weight. I think its Tuttle only

Not sure if the 1250 wing is much different than your wing. I think that after a day or two more of getting things dialed in on my new board, I'm giving the 1150 wing some time on the water.
