Old thread, I know.  --- Just gotta say the 1099 has become my favorite foil as of late.  It has the widest speed range of all my current foils, meaning, from pretty darn slow to, I haven't maxxed it out yet.   In the variable conditions here in Maine this is often a session saver.  On longer downwinders it gives me peace of mind knowing I will be fine in many different conditions from lowish wind and swell to the largest I have yet to ride. I find its maneuverability accepatable especially when paired with a 400P tail. Using a short fuse, seems very nice.

I'm going to have to try it again. I used my 999 today with the 400/60 tail and my new 4.5M D-Lab wing. So very good.

Have to agree. It took me a while to get its placement dialed in, but having moved down from the 425P, to the 400P, and now to the 350P it's really come to life (all on a crazy short fuse).

I'm going to give the 325P a shot when we get a little bit more than the 2-3' mush we've had recently it to see what happens, as smaller stabs seem to work better with these ART wings for whatever reason(s)...at least in the surf anyway.
