I'm digging this. 

If anyone has had a chance to ride one, please post up some comments.

I believe the information about this foil was released prematurely and has been taken down.  It will probably be a few weeks or more before this foil is formally introduced to the general public.

No doubt it will be a popular foil -- welcome to the party! Just about every foil manufacturer will have one or more HA foils for sale this year.  Moses has the W1000, 900 and 800.  Slingshot will be adding a HA foil to their Phantasm lineup.  North will have at least one.  Axis has a several and on it goes.  Lots of competition out there, which is a good thing.

Not even remotely interested. Flat water tricksters might like it and that is all. Will be ordinary in waves.

It might jump to the moon in waves. The faster you go, the higher you jump.

Yep, gonna be interesting to see exactly who's going to be able to actually get it to fly in ordinary waves. I'm curious to see if anyone over 150 lbs and on a prone board will be able to get that thing to lift them off the water unassisted with as little surface area and high AR that it has.

I know a lot of guys around here have been clamoring for Armie to come out with a HA wing after watching so many of us having such a blast on Axis, C9, Lift, Uni, and GoFoil HA wings, but I don't believe a 9.8 AR was what they expected, wanted, or will be able to ride. But we'll see soon enough...I'm sure a couple of my diehard Armstrong friends already have their deposits in. :D

EDIT: It was just 3.5 short months ago that Armie was saying that there were only a few riders in the world that could ride a HA wing....

...guess everyone got a whole lot better in record time that he decided to make them now. ;D

It is small but I wonder if their fuse to front wing connection can handle a larger HA foil.

He is relentlessly annoying the whole industry :)
The guy's comments are hilarious! The one that goes with the above horses is priceless...

I loved Surfcowboy's response in one of the comments.

Armstrong selling old stock. HA wings don't work! Old stock is all cleared out. Look at our new HA wing!

I’m primarily psyched on the 1125 for winging. If it truly is similar to the W1000, then check out Gunnar’s review to see why I’m psyching. He basically says it’s is favorite wing to date for winging in waves. Enough said. Too bad Moses seems to have some compatibility issues with the W1000 where you need a kite fuse or something.

The new launch seems to include a few extra bolts into the titanium fuse to latch everything down to the nth degree.

Arnie is hamming up the America’s cup angle and I for one think it is dope. The Mariners museum a few miles from my house has the cat on display that won in San Fran two cups ago. You can basically fondle the foils that are over 6’ tall.
I’m a 5’9” 65kg rider:

Boards:
   3'11" 25L Armstrong
   4'5.5" 33L Armstrong
   4’10” 37L FSM
   5'1" 74L FSM
   5’11” 100L FSM

Foils: Armstrong 800, 850, 1050, HA1125, 1850, 2400
Wings: BRM 2M-6M

Here's the solution for the compatibility issue:

8:00 Mark on Gunnar's W1000 review talks about the geometry of the wing and it's preferred mast positioning.  Not sure how this would work with the referenced adapter plate.

I hope the HA1125 doesn't need to go further forward than the HS1250 or I'll be in the market for a new wingboard.
