New Armstrong 1250 hs
« on: October 03, 2020, 04:57:40 AM »
Iíve seen it on someoneís instagram story the new 1250 hs front wing.
Compared to the 1550 it seems to have shorter cord and higher aspect ratio.
It will be interesting to know if it can substitute the 1550.
Anyone test it already?
Thanks!!

I think Matt has the 1250 on the wing board in this video. Waiting for his 1250 review video to drop. It looks like a fast foil that might be fun to surf.

Hello Fat,
I got it from the Armstrong foilers group on facebook but actually the picture has been removed from there.
Anyways it doesnít say the specifics.
Official release date is 16th of October by the way.

Foiltheworld appears to like the 1250!  See the comments in his post:

https://www.instagram.com/p/CGOhPUPnlYW/?igshid=panprbu0qjnx

'Also new is this @armstrongfoils 1250HS wing. Pumps & glides like a high aspect wing but still able to carve! HS is no lie, itís definitely a high speed, low drag wing and you can feel it! It doesnít have a super low end lift like some similar wings, but the high end speed is a great trade off!
Iím riding it here with 85/60/212/+1'
