If winging is your main objective, the 1050 is the way to go. For winging 1050/930 are my main set ups and then when it nukes, the 700.

While I was up visiting the Cocoa Beach crew, my buddy Rush shot a few vids on quick reviews of the different wings and random stuff so I'll post them as he edits them.

Any feedback or critique, I always like to hear. These are just quick vids and I'm sure I missed some info but trying to keep it short and informative.

Nick -- great videos.

We need you to start your own thread where you can put the videos you do.

Please do videos on some of the other Axis foils (980 etc.) and brief reviews of all the wind wings you have tried.

Also more technique videos would be great.

You're a great resource.

My buddy who is around 210 lbs, and 70 yrs old, wings the 1150 as is main ride. Well he got enough demo time on the new 1060 BSC to be blown away. He bought it. Says it makes his life so much easier. Now his jibes are automatic and easy. Speed he thought, might be better than his 1150. Thinking of you PonoBill.  ;D

Then I let him try my 1050 HPS. Again he was blown away. Now heís thinking he needs that one too.

Another buddy around 160lbs, who wings the 920 and 900 as his quiver, took my HPS 980 for a ride. The HPS 980 is now going to be his one foil quiver. He went nuts ripping turns and riding fast when he demoed it.

I have the 910 which I love and covers a huge range for me, Iím 77 kg. I have been thinking of the  PNG1010 or the Broad Spectrum1060 for the lighter end of my range and when the winds a bit inconsistent. I also donít want to buy the black series gear as Iíve only had my Axis set up a couple of months. So what dya think?

Donít really want to go as big as the 1150 as I had the Moses W1100 which I found too big.

Cheers

Mike

The 1010 was my one wing quiver for winging last season at 87Kg. A few times I was wishing for a 910 in the 30+ wind and waves but we get such variable conditions over the course of a downwinder, better to have too much. It was great with the 390 tail and now with the 420 even better. Little penalty on the low end and noticeably faster at the high end.

I'd love to have an 1150 too but feel like the 1010 is big enough.

Couldnít agree more on the 1060 as Iíve have quite a few hours on it and Iím a believer,excellent wing especially if your in the heavier class 200+ but for all I know maybe it goes just as well for lighter riders too,just canít say enough about this wing just glides and turns so well,and is so reliable in the sense it rarely gets a mind of its own like the HA 1150 which in waves Iím not the biggest fan of,for me the lower AR than my 1150 just works so much better for me.I pushed it to the limits today offshore wind 20-30 G over 35 with 3.5 Ensis and it still behaves like a champ,mostly riding it with the 420 and must say itís right up there speed wise with my 1150.If you are going to stay with red fuse highly recommend the 1060 really stoked that Axis thinks a bit outside the box and delivers on a lower aspect wing going on a tangent with the trend all in the HA direction that seems most foil companies are heading these days these tad lower AR for me just perform much better in the waves for me personally,might be interested in selling my 1150 now as itís in dust collecting mode lately as it just will not go in challenging conditions where my 1060 will go with ease

The 1150 is way more responsive than the Moses but, the 1060 will carve better with the down turned tips. if you were picking just one wing then I would say go 1010 but  to add to your 910 then you can't go wrong with 1060 or 1150.

I took the 700 out with the wing today. OMG that foil is fun! Super fast, and turns like crazy. Can't wait to get it on some real waves. I was thinking of getting the moses 800 and 1000, but now I've lost interest. The 700 is like a formula one car for the waves!

Interesting, I rode the 1060's lil brother (970), and didn't think it carved as well as the 1150's and 1010's lil brother (910)...having not ridden the any of those bigger bros. :D

Now granted, I'm talking surf foiling them, and winging might be a completely different kind "carving", but while they call them "PNG" wings, the baby of the family turns super well at speed (with the 460 tail), and not that far off the 900's surf carving, but as the name says, it pumps much better than the 900....IMHO naturally.
