Are the S820 and S920 obsolete now that the S900 and S1000 are out?

Or are there still conditions that the older front wings are the better choice?

Perhaps they  are turning more radical  have better lift in light wind and small waves?

They are very different wings. The 102 and 92 and really easy to ride. Early lift, without too much lift. Great for small waves and light wind winging. The 1000 and 900 are good for more skilled users, in better quality waves and higher winds. My guess is the 82 and smaller sizes will be less desirable when the 880, 780, 680 arrive soon. Not sure how the new 101 will fit in. It might be more desirable than the 1000.

102 and 1000 is a good quiver. 92 and 900 is another good quiver pair.

Finally called and talked to Lenny at Live2Kite. Nice to have someone spend the time to explain things.  Felt good to know enough to tell him what I wanted based on a summer of reading on the Standupzone! Got the 1020 with the 500 rear wing for now. Along with the 60cm mast I got the 45cm for low tide. Saving for the 920 or 1000 and the 440 rear wing.
Cheers!

Axis just put out a nice video which describes what they have found with the 900 but also how it fits with the 1000 and 920.

Has anyone measured the weight of their full Axis foil rig (say 1020 wing, short fus, 75cm mast, etc) or whatever they’re specifically using? Really curious where they are coming in at.

You can try them all when you come down here.

Cool! I’ll bring my scale. :)  My Gong rig weighs in at ~10.5 pounds (pro XL, 65cm mast). My Moses rig with a 70 cm mast and the 790 front wing weighs in at ~6.75 pounds. The difference is really noticeable. I figure just like the board, all that swing weight of the foil starts to add up.

I'm loving the 960 in high wind. I'm going to have to try a 1000 next. I don't get as much glide through the lulls with the 960, but it turns on a dime.
Foote 10'4X34", SIC 17.5 V1 hollow and an EPS one in Hood River. Foote 9'0" x 31", L41 8'8", 18' Speedboard, etc. etc.

Do you mean 920?  There is no 960 with Axis.

Anyone have a 500mm rear wing they want to part with? Went to the Axis website and put a new one in my cart and it automatically calculated shipping with UPS 5 day for $68. $68 dollars to ship a rear wing?? WTF!!!

Email them. They will correct it. They also do free shipping if you contact them, on most stuff.

Anybody tried the new S1010 ?

I really hope it will be easy to lift but it is only 1430 cm2 , just a little bit bigger than the S1000
