Armstrongs labeling made my head hurt.

+1 for less lift
0 for more lift

WTF

I say who gives a crap what the numbers are.

Make the shims color coded or labeled. More Lift, Less lift. The End!

Amen Dwight only way to go regarding shims should be a universal across the board 100%

I think many brands are using projected area.

So the 980 is 1218 projected.

I'm really enjoying sup foiling the 1050 also. Just got the crazy short fuselage and hope to get on it tomorrow. It's great how fast these foils can move and turn.

Can someone shed some light on the 980 prototypes around at the moment vs the production range coming out later ?

I heard that the production one will be slightly different and slower  ;D

Hi Sydney,

There are two new High Aspect tails coming.  A 400 which is a smaller version of the 460 and a 380 which is a smaller version of the 420.

Thanks, does that mean the 400 is going to be flat without those upwards tips like the 460?

Axis confusing us as usual  :-\ Need some proper details and matching guide on their website.

Here are some details:

420: New for 2021, with flat and high aspect section, and 17mm winglets on the tips for more stability while hard carving. FAST and high performance
400: A smaller and faster version of the 460 rear wing. Designed for the pro rider in you
380: An even smaller, faster and higher performance rear wing, carrying the same design principles as the 420

I am looking forward to the smaller tails.  The 980 that I have is really cool.  Mine is very low incidence at .5 degree.  I have no idea what anyone else has.  Right now I still have a bit too much tail influence so I need to either flatten the tail more, drop some tail area or both.  I am very OK spending a little time tuning this one out because it is a smoking foil.

Someone just told me that the 420 tail has better upwind than his cut down 460 (to 410).

So this means the upwards tips means better upwind, interesting.....

Better tracking through turns with the tips. So if you’re leaned over I guess the tips help you go upwind. Just my thoughts.

My Axis Kane tail just arrived. $265 delivered.

Thickness is same as the 420. Chord is more at 65mm versus 50mm for the 420. Span is 355 versus 420.

My next session should be fun. The water speed app will reveal all I care about.

That is some sexy tail Dwight! I want to get me some. Is that a "stock" Kane Axis tail or did you request dimensions?
