Hilly
Thanks for posting this. 

I just got my Armstrong 1550 and am trying to tune my mast position in my tracks relative to my feet positioning and wave size.  I switched over from the GF Iwa setup and excited to figure this new rig out.  I have noticed that the 1550 does not require as much front foot pressure as the GF Iwa.  Have you had it out in bigger days, chest plus waves?  Wondering how it handles larger waves.

It works well in bigger waves but not as well as the 1200. Way less lift than Axis foils or the 1600. Very controllable at speed. The 1550 is an awesome wing.

Digging the Armstrong foils. Well done Hilly you were slaying it out there...but how to you find such fun little waves like that...with just one other person on them? :o So cool... 8)
Me: 6'1"/200...6'0" Chelu Foil Boards...9'6" Bob Pearson "Laird Noserider"...9'6" Costa Azul Wide Body...14' Lahui Kai "Manta"...8'0" WaveStorm for when proning urges still hit, and 7'3" Chuck Glynn foil board backup.

Hilly,
Where did you get your Armstrong set up?
