No more Tuttle box. Am I missing something? Slingshot doesnít offer any carbon fiber masts that work with this board. Not going back to aluminum.

The adjustable foil track is the only way to go for a bunch of reasons.
The rumor is Sling Shot will release the new carbon windsurf foils in the next few weeks. But we heard that before..

Why not shim the stabilizer and leave the mast position alone?

Because the more angle from shim or otherwise, the more instability as speed varies.

100% in agreement. I am done with fixed mast position boards.

Last year I switched to a GW 101 and Moses foils. I was getting my bell rung way too often on SS aluminum due to unexpected cavitation. I would rather avoid traumatic brain injury at the cost of an adjustable mast track.

So, Moses is the cure?
Are you saying Slingshot is the culprit?
I do recall a few SS riders who foil ok.

Sorry wrong copy.
Could be operator error. My original question - why put out a board line where you donít have the choice?

Everyone says their newest incarnation is the best ever.
Could it be that THEY THEMSELVES are getting better, so new gear SEEMS better?
Myself, I windsurf 4 days a week on 1999 or older gear. That 20+ year old stuff makes me do just fine, and works better than I do.
My 2018 Naish foiling gear works WAAAY better than I can ever foil.
Maybe you should contact Slingshot?
