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.





Dwight,

have you measured the AoI for the KD tail?  Mine just arrived but I cant find my calipers...

420 is 60 chord.  Interested to see how this goes for you.

After reading Bill shims his tail I gave it try. 

For me the 420 with 1 hotel key card shim (decreasing down force) was fun on a small wave, looser, faster, more slippery in a good way.  Than I caught an overhead bomb and was barely hanging on, I survived the 600+ yards but felt lucky not to have a high speed faceplant.  Took the shim out for the rest of the session, felt super springy as in more than I like but also more pitch control.

Yesterday was smaller, tried 2 thin beer can (probably coconut water) shims, I like that feel, still some spring and able to go more top to bottom on the good sections.
Aloha, I welcome and appreciate all responses of positivity and good feeling.

Kane dimensions a little off. A good size gap at the front. Hope it doesnít whistle.

Nice! Look forward to your review vs the 420 in particular with upwind and carving to see how effective the. upwards tips on the 420 are

Is it feasible to take the shim out while in the water or do you come in to beach for that?

Oh shit here we go already 1k at least in the hole just looking at the new wings,just plucked down some good coin on the 860 the other day!wondering if anyone tried the 1300 yet as that might be a big guy lightwind weapon,but not sure it be that much better than my 1150 thatís the $800 question.Like to hear from anyone who has tried one yet? Also the 1050 B is looking mighty intriguing too! To me this is the big advantage of Axis these days they are pretty much in a league of there own with so many wing offerings to make your head spin,donít think any foil company has these many options to my knowledge,thanks for posting this news,drool on👍

Absolutely, as long as I don't use through the bolt shims - as in taking a bolt completely out in the water is asking for trouble.  Bit tricky as shims usually like to stay in there with the bolt only partially loosened, helps if I have another shim with me to push out the shim.

I am a bit disappointed, the S860  is now my goto foil for winging and I use my S920 under 17 knots for winging. I tried the S980 and I did not like the way it turns at all...
And the S1010 and S1150 are also not my thing.
I was hoping there would be a bigger S860 but it is all HA foils as far as I can see?
Perhaps the 890? But it will probably be less surface than the 860.

Come on Axis , why not a 960 with 1500 cm^2 ?

I think the 890 has similar AR to the 810 so projected SA will be around 1240.

That's what I expected, too small.
And I don't want to go wider than a meter..
