That orange wing looks identical to the F-one. I hope it is an Fone prototype. Take my money. I want that window.

Just as another opinion I am OK without the window. Once in a while I raise it over my head to glance around, but in general I have not had any problem without the window.

I suppose it could have to do with the number of people on the water in the area you are in.

Anyway, just wanted to mention that in case someone is thinking of getting the F-One Swing but is concerned it does not have a window.

I miss the window going downwind or when there are beaucoup windsurfers aiming for the same wave.

Looks like lots of brand wings and sizes are coming out and hopefully be competitive to gong prices.

JEG,  If recent history is an example, only the price of unpopular things, or proven failures, go down.  The base iPhone 4 was $200.

That’s a misleading statement Jim. Iphone 4 msrp was $599. 200 was possible with subsidies from carriers that lured you into lengthy contracts. I just don’t see wing companies jerk their prices even higher.

Starting to get my dealer pricing on the new wings and I'm not seeing any decrease in prices, more of an increase if anything. Plus I'm sure they'll use the virus as an excuse to raise prices

' nets... 'I don't know?!' ...that was a simple lift from a G-search.  I should know - I have one sitting in a charger.  I frankly prefer the size.

iPhone 4 comes in either black or white and will be available in the US for a suggested retail price of $199 (US) for the 16GB model and $299 (US) for the 32GB model in both Apple and AT&T's retail and online stores, Best Buy and Wal-Mart stores.Jun 7, 2010

In case someone is looking for it ..there's iPhone #1 (also C/P'd) for $11k on eBay.

I believe wing prices will increase slightly for next year.  The Virus will also affect delivery times as many of  the Factories shut down for a week or 2 including cargo and delivery companies. Some companies are also using new more expensive materials to make stronger and lighter wings.  Hopefully not too much but I would say up to 10%.

There are great wings available in all sizes in the shops now.  That is a big difference from even last fall when we were still all trying to get our hands on core sizes.
