New Gong wing?
« on: November 29, 2020, 12:57:59 PM »
Just seen this - looks radical and not in a bad way, although don't have the smarts to assess its merits based on one photo.

Anyone have any details, comments, opinions?

Nice to see they're continuing development there. It would be fun to try one of these massive sizes just for feel but doubt I'll ever own one. I still wonder if I just got a "Monday" built 5M Pulse. Once the repair bills overtook the cost of the wing I sold it and won't be jumping back in again anytime soon. Less than 4M I might still consider them, less chance to drag and fold a wing tip (kerpow!) I'll let you pioneers take the arrows on this one  ;D

They just had two pages of wings for sale on their "great deals / wings" page, mostly Pulses (they sold out in about a day). Could mean they're about to announce a new one.

Yeah, cleaning out the old stick I'll bet.

And yeah,in any of these I'll bet there are bad runs til someone figures out what happened. With Gong I'll bet that's a quick sell thru but they should cop to it and sell you next gen for cheap.

These "square" wings look nice to me as a short guy. I held a 4m ozone yesterday and loved the idea of never dragging a tip. I love my 5m Swing but will surely swap at some point just to lose a foot of span for same grunt.
