Axis 420 tail
« on: January 21, 2021, 11:46:27 PM »
Anyone try the 420 tail?  They say it’s a shorter, faster version of the 460 with winglets. I have the 460 on an ultra short fuselage and 910 wing. Works great...very stable yet turns fine for me. Curious if anyone has experience with both and can offer a comparison. It’s not like I need something new or better but wouldn’t mind spending some money. ;D

Yeah, running the 420 with the 910 on an ultra short fuse, and love it. Going to try the 420 with the 900 today just to see how it works in comparison to the 460 I tried with it previously, and didn't particularly like it. Just a little too slippery in the tail for my tastes, and hoping the 420 will tighten it up a bit, but still maintain the 460 speed and pump-ability that I liked....compared to the 390 I had been running on it.

Hear you on that one! When I first got my 420 I immediately softened wingtips with some 600 wet&dry as it was down right knify sharp, I only use mine winging not supfoiling in waves feel a bit safer winging its a great winging wing really adds a clip of speed for sure minimal drag,but yeah highly recommend soften the tips up,pardon the pund but good point Califoilia

Yeah, I am definitely going to tone that thing down a bit. At least I'll always be wearing a wetsuit.
