Got my attention. 

We have an Armstrong board, several board bags and a bunch of foils for winging and kiting.  Every single piece of equipment including the foil bag, covers, torx key, etc seem very well thought out and constructed with attention to the smallest details using the best materials.

Interesting window shapes.  Could he have figured out a way to get some windows in without loss of wing stiffness?

Word on the street is that this new wing will likely launch end of next month. 

With the Armstrong Foil sections being designed by the Rob Whitall, who is a legend in paraglide designs, kites, hang-gliders, etc, I hope he is involved in this project for sure. 

I hope these don't carry the same premium price as the other Amrstrong products, but I will definitely be checking them out, as the quality and function will almost assuredly be there.
