After seeing a guy with a stingray barb completely through his foot I'd be bringing a rake with me if I were in a place where a stingray had ever been seen. .

tried the 1150 today with the 90 mast, gave the 1150 for me a whole new for the better performance in the ocean itís becoming a much better friend to me with that mast in short interval windswell than with shorter 75,if you have decent windswell and no issue with depths itís the way to go winging shoulda known by my kitefoiling experience but was kinda going on my supfoil experience  instincts on my usual 29Ē mast length thinking it was the golden rule similarily to winging,Nope not if your local conditions have choppy and sp windswell much better IMO the 90,like I said before if Axis made one for me a 32-33Ē would be the dope optimum! but get me wrong still really like the 75 too in smoother conditions.I rode the 920 yesterday with the 90 and still so stoked on how well it was working,weíre just scratching the surface in this new wind sport so nice to find new better ways to configure all our gear to make things work better for our personal preferences albeit with more frigging $ spent

Fortunately, aluminum masts are cheap. Unfortunately, the carbon ones aren't. Admin and Chan swear by the carbon 96. I've had one on order for a month or so. Hope see it in October.

Yes, the 96 cm masts have been excellent.  We had the 76 cm carbon masts and haven't used them since we switched up.  The longer masts add another level of freedom that was very unexpected to me.  I expected to blow through less but it is what they do when turning that is really liberating.  We have some 106's on order and I am interested how those go.  It would be different if we were in surf or shallow water but for Gorge/Baja use?  No contest.

It does seem like an underthought match to have foil lengths longer than mast lengths.  Breaching wingtips is never an issue on foils of any design with a wingspan at 86 or lower with a 96 mast.

Are any here familiar with whether Axis has plans to introduce a lighter fuselage (e.g. carbon)? Anyone think they shouldn't?

Also, I believe I heard here that have announced introduction of carbon mast(s) with length intermediary between 76 and 96?

I would be happy to see a carbon fuselage. As of June both 106 and 86 cm masts were expected this month.

Admin donít see it on the site,a 106 and 86 in carbon?just see 76 and 96? Man they sure ainít cheap $800 for a mast yikes,but if a 86 becomes available I probably gonna bite thanks to my recent love affair with the 19mm X 90cm,howís the stiffness of that CF mast Admin anywhere close to the 19mm aluminum,as thatís one thing I really like about the 19mm alum mast they are just pretty much the stiffest mast Iíve ever tried and I have tried many for my 225lbs tonnage one of the outstanding qualities of the Axis foils
