The 420 is the smaller one. The 460 is the bigger flat one. Both of those are supposed to be solid carbon so you can chop shop them down to whatever size you prefer.

You wouldn't chop down the 420 as it has winglets.

There was a comment somewhere about smaller versions of those 2.

Yep there is a smaller 380, that is like the 420, on the way.

Kane tail much quicker turning.

Kane takes a little more effort to get on foil than the 420. The 420 feels faster.

Radical turns, the Kane, for general winging, the 420 is my choice.

Like to hear about the new BSC 1060 FLkiter do you think it be a good light wind wing for a big guy? Currently ride the 1150 in flatter lighter days and 920 when windier, just got the 860 few weeks back but have not winged it yet, but like what I see spec wise on the 1060 looks like a 1020 on steroids! You think it be a good choice as the 1020 is great learning wing but runs it coarse pretty quick just too slow draggy, but the 1060 certainly appears interesting like to hear about it!thanks👍

Seeking opinions on back wings as I don't want to go thru this whole Topic to find answers. 

My experience is with the 1010/440 and 1010/420.  I love the speed and glide of the 420 but it is too neutral on a wave for my taste.  I like the "feed back" I get from front foot pressure when things get fast and steep but not as much as with the 440.  Any suggestions for something in between?

I have narrowed my choice to the 390 or 370 to pair with PNG front wings.  I suspect either will be just fine.

Either is a good choice, and "will be just fine" as you say. The difference felt more as speed, and "stickiness" if you will.

The 370 is faster, and turns really well...as long as you like turning faster also (meaning not trying to slow down at all before and through your turn).

The 390 is "sticky" in that it holds really well (slightly better than the 370), but is also slower in comparison, and why you can slow it down slightly before and through the turn, and it'll still have the drive/lift for you throughout the turn, whereas the 370 once it gets slowed, has a tendency to drop of foil easier.

So it all becomes a matter of what you're planning on using it for, and how you like to ride. I personally like to go faster, and (try) to turn harder, so the 370 (and 420) have replaced the 390 for myself.

But the 390 is the stab I pair up with the 900 for experienced riders who are curious about the Axis stuff compared to their current stuff, and are demoing it for the first time...all come back smiling at how "user friendly" that setup is.

Less experienced riders I'll put on the 1000/440 just so they're not too overwhelmed by the speed of the 900 in comparison to the lower aspect stuff they're usually riding to start out with. The 1000/440 is a good taste of higher aspect wings, but not too fast that they're scared off by them. Most come back really liking the flatter forward projection and easy glide of the 1000/440 compared to the more porpoising, up and down ride they get from their lower aspect wings.

Hope that helps some.

Throw a shim on the 390, speeds it up

Yes, I use a -1 shim on the 390 and 370 on the 900, but not with 910 or with the 460 or 420 on the 900. Thanks "bigmtn", good point that I forgot to mention. But with or w/o the shim, the 390 is still slower than the 370...in my experiences anyway.

I also have a shim on my 390.

Friend went to buy the HPS980 production model. It's a different surface and outline to last year's ones  ???
