Those look sweet.  They look a lot thinner and even more refined near the plate.  Plate looks thinner as well?  Can't wait for the 960's to arrive.

I'm fond of the 340, especially with the 1000 or 1150 front wing. It's a little nutty with the 860, but if you want something that turns fast I guess it's okay. I was originally using it with the 1020 and didn't care for it, but with the 1000 it feels balanced, not too slide-y, and makes for a responsive setup. I thought it would be cool with the 860 but it feels like I forgot to put the stabilizer on. How would I know what that feels like?

What would you suppose.

You can see the changes between the v1 and v2 carbon masts in this photo.

Evan the Axis owner comments saying that covers for carbon masts are "overrated"  ::) ;D

Legs from old wetsuits make good mast covers for pretty carbon masts.

Foiling NY's review of the 1300 is up, (obviously done last October), with some interesting conclusions. Faster than expected but low speed performance is not quite up to that of the 1150. The only wing thus far that is kept aloft by the second wake of the jetski (in the comments).

The new Axis 1300 front wing wasn't design with flatwater pumping in mind. It was made for ligh wind wingfoiling and downwind, and it should be absolutely smoking on those conditions. And that why it's not very similiar to the 1150 (different aspect ratio, lower area, volume and also different foil section).

Nevertheless it's an amazing wing for pumping and surfing small bumps.

Rode the Kane tail (shim in) with the HPS980. With 6m in not so great wind. Very loose and surfy. But it whistles, sometimes deafening loud. Thought for a NY minute, I was king of the world hitting 20.6 mph. Then Jacky informed me she hit 21 mph on the 420 tail without shim. She kicked my ass.

It whistles a little all the time, then it has weird moments of super loud whistling unlike anything from anybody. This makes me wonder if two things are going on. The more common whistle from the tailing edge. Then the big gap and bad fit at the front is making the super loud noise.

If Axis can make quiet wings, I want everyone to make quiet wings.

If they are made by MauiCNC, they should be perfect.

Iíll fix it. I just donít have lots of spare time to fix it.

I had the 420 with the 910 "humming" at times today. But not as loud or consistent as I'd get from my most all of my GF setups...when other guys with GFs never made a peep. Only learned about filing the GF stabs trailing edge about the time I was transitioning over, so never bothered with it. But all-in-all it's never been that big of an annoyance to me, so an occasional hum never bothered me that much, and when it does or did happen...figured it just let others know I was coming, and to get the heck outta the way! LOL... ;D

First wave session with Axis.  1010 is the smallest I have and my concern that it would be too big today was valid.  The end is not pretty but the ride was fun.  Now in the market for a smaller foil.  Leaning towards a 910.  Want to stay with red fuse for now.

Phils, at your size the 860 will be nutty fun.

More from yesterday's wave session.  1010/440.  Clip I posted earlier was inverted.

You can see the front wing and stab break the surface right before you go in.  It looked like you were plenty forward.  What to do to prevent that?  It's happened to me with this same set up.  I don't like these type of falls.  They hurt.

Go slower. That's probably that wings speed limit. At some point you can't hold the wing in the water anymore.
