This feels like the day that GoFoil put out a plate adapter and the Tuttle-never-plate guys cursed quietly.

That is a great looking wing.  The handles looks like they have an inner soft handle with an outer sheath of some kind.  Anyone know more about that?

Looks like boom grip on a piece of tubing to me.

You're exactly right they have a super comfy webbing handle with soft Eva molded around them.

Probably the most notable charistic of this wing which makes it different from all of the other inflatable center strut wings=IFCW's out there, is the s-curved center strut which brings the trailing side or leach end of the boom closer to the body for a more relaxed and natural riding position which is especially noticeable for toe side riding which this wing will be used for a lot since it will be preferred by downwinders and wave riders who generally don't switch their feet as much.  Very cool feature that Ken Winner clued in on after extensive testing riding waves and downwinding.   ;D

These guys have the Unit in stock. I’m saying this because their web site shows real in store stock, in my experience.

Love that air 360. That's worth putting footstraps on my board for.

I have the Echos. Rigid, tight, solid, powerful, with great stability. They fixed the bad behavior of last years wing.
