Can the 1250hs be a substitute of the 1550hs?
« on: November 07, 2020, 01:09:58 PM »
I was riding today in 8/10 knots with a echo 5mt and my Armstrong 1550hs.(my weight is 57kg)
Well it was not a ride, I would say a fight!  I manage to get on foil but my arms and legs were exhausted after 30 min, since it was a constant hard working.
And then I saw a video of a F one rider (his weight is 64kg), riding a swing 4.2mt  and a phantom 1280 in what he said it was 8 knots wind.
So i am really curious to see what is the really low end of my mew 1250 which I tried in 14/16 knots and I simply loved it and since I found it more efficient than the 1550hs, maybe there is a chance to have it as one quiver front wing, considering also that going in 10,knots is not fun anymore for me.
Did someone already tried it in a very light wind?
Thanks!

My wife and I both have 1250s. This issue we have when riding it in light wind, is you cannot allow yourself to make any mistakes. You need to ride in a way that never allows you to drop off foil.

Is that the kind of riding I want to do in light wind....hell no. I donít want to wait 10 minutes on the next gust to get me going.

So she still uses the 1550, and I use the 1850 in light wind.

The Fone Phantom is really impressive. I watched the rep riding the 1480. Fast, with good glide. Iíd consider that foil if it didnít cost $2477 USD in the equivalent configuration as my Armstrong kit.
