Read Dwight's post in this thread. He's gone through most of the big name brands. He's now on the AXIS black series. Pretty big endorsement for winging right there.

It's really hard to get a handle on new foils -- so many new foils and so little time.

Slingshot has the new Phantasm, which will accept the Moses surf wings (i.e. W1100) along with its new winging and windfoiling wing foils all mounted on an extremely stiff and long mast (see Tucker's video below).

Yes I'm keen to checkout the Phantasm, Fone Phantom and Moses (w950 coming out soon). Checkout this: https://www.mackiteboarding.com/news/joes-thoughts-on-the-moses-1000-vs-fone-phantom-1480/

I doubt Fone will be as quick as the black series.
Moses wings look the thinnest I've seen.

I had another go on the 980 yesterday using the US fuse and a custom flat tail. It's quick but the pitching/pulsing is becoming annoying and is hard work. Hence I am keen to try other stuff out there a bit more stable pitch-wise.

A request:  Would someone with experience with the Axis 980 wing please list the positives and negatives of this wing in comparison with other wings they may have owned (i.e. Armstrong 1850 or 1250, Moses 1100, Slingshot i84 or i76, etc.).

I'm looking for new winging (and windfoiling) foils so thanks in advance for any info.

My best advice is to demo them yourself. Please do not buy a complete new foil set without trying first. Especially with the HPS black series, it's an advanced foil which requires skills to get it going and keeping it going.

Is the 1300 part of the HPS range or more of a supercharged 1150 replacement? I know it uses the red fuse but haven't heard much.....

A bigger 1150. Red fuse model.  Not part of the HPS range.

1300 is dedicated towards wing'ing. Beginner/intermediate and super light winds. Has tons of glide but not a pumper like the 1150. It goes on the red fuselage and I prefer it with crazy short fuselage and 370 rear. This will probly not be out till spring. I can ride in less wind than what I could do with a 13 Chrono V3 and 1250 foil. I think those that want a super easy down wind foil will also love it. It was blowing 20 knots and I was on a 2.5 ensis, got on foil and just glided forever with little to no input from me. Turns very well for its size when paired with ultra or crazy short fuselage. The foil is so long that it's incredibly stable. If you're new to winging and don't have a good board pump, then 1300 will be for you. Two pumps of the wind wing and you're up and riding.

As for the HPS wings, the 1050 is so user friendly. I've had several beginners get on it with the ultra short fuselage and 370 rear shimmed, haven't had a person get off it and not ask when they can get one. Teaching tacks has been really easy also. The foil will carry you through the turn without the wind wing's help. This also relates to riding towards a wave, tacking without the wing and riding away on the waves power.

I'm in South Florida so if you're in the area, hit me up to try them. This week key West, next week Miami

I tried my 1150 and 340 with the ultra short fuselage (which I previously didn't like) and I loved it. I put that combo on the fuse because I'm using carbon masts and I happened to have this unused, unloved ultra-short laying around. Who knew it could be cool?

I'm trying to figure out why I like it, it's weird. It's the usual 1150 stuff, but it turns really well, almost like the 860. No idea why.

Also, I set it up with no shim because I only had two short screws, and it's good! I think the ultra short fuse is equivalent to a little bit of shim.
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.

today I had another go on the 980 but this time I used the rear shim on the custom flat stab and what a difference it makes after my session yesterday (where it was pulsating lots), with the shim is a lot more stable. It was also light winds 13-17Kn which is where I find the 980 excels best for my 76kg and 6m wing.

As such I am not thinking of sticking to ultra short over short as I enjoy it being loose and pumping. Anyone else enjoying the ultra short with the 980/1050?

If you like the 1010 you'll love the 1150. I have both and never use the 1010 anymore. Anything the 1010 does the 1150 does better. It even turns better. Spooky good wing.

Yeah, finding a good deal on a used 1150 locally is what got me on this slippery slope.  Its combination of low stall speed and glide is second to none, IMO.  Now I am wondering if the 1300 will be even better. :)

Mph? That's about 16kn. I've got 19.2knots.

I can also hit 18kn with the 1000.

Mic drop. I'm stoked for her too! You guys keep tempting me to buy a wing again.

I did have a good prone session today though.
