Thanks for the refresher post of the early beginnings.
PSS: See this post for a flashback..Awesome to see folks like Dwight and the rest of the crew frothing..

I went down this incredible rabbit hole of Downwind foiling and never looked back.
I canít wait to see where it goes in the next few years and really hope I am able to still be doing it.

I had the opportunity of testing an RS1300 yesterday, and I'm impressed with the performance. By far the best foil I ever tested. These foils are going to be a big deal. I saw a half of the wing out of the water several times and could not even notice.
Surfy, great pumping, endless planning.
The word out there is that they will be available from December. One ordered here.
Below are some pictures.

very cool to hear!
Can you say what other foils you've tested - just so we can reference your statement that it is the best you've tried.  How does it compare to Kujira 1210; Lift 120/170; or Axis 999?

pafoil,
how does the RS compare to the PNL 185?

The shape is very similar to the Pnl185, but it feels like the Rs1300 can pull tips out of the water easier ( I mean with no issues)
Feels better for pumping than the kujira.
I have tested, gofoils, fanatic (their HA is similar to Lifts), Takuma, starboard, and slingshot.
Never been able to test directly an Axis or a Lifts, for some reason we don't really see them here (Spain).
In any case, I recommend trying the RS series if you can; as I have noticed that what works for some people, does not work for others.

Below is the picture of the PNL185 and RS1300 side by side. Just as you said, seem almost dead on as far as wingspan, chord length.
But the leading edge seem much beefier? Looks like it has a lot more volume overall?

What was your impression about lift and stall speed in comparison to the PNL185?

The best accurate comparation that I can give you is with the NL160, and stalling speed is much lower; I would say that the RS1300 is closer to the GL240. Lift starts earlier than the NL160 and is easier to control. I was expecting the RS to turn worst than the NL160, but indeed is way better, as it does not seems to accumulate lift as much during turns.
This is the first real HA that I tried, so perhaps thatís why Iím so impress. In any case, this steps make wonders.
One RS in the way,

Holy smokes... you are comparing the 1300 to the 160... wow!  I figured that the 1150 was the closer comparison though I guess the 160 is in the between the two sizes from an area perspective.  Crazy that in Jeremy Riggs video he indicated the 1150 stays up in 7knots which is Maliko 200 territory...

I have the RS 1300 and will have the RS 1k and 1150 this week but have already ridden them.

1300 is more surfy than the pnl. I still need to mess with my tail but it is better in rough stuff where the pnl got twitchy. I have been surfing it and downinding it daily and it is great. The pump is great if you keep it in the sweet spot but its not as good as I thought. It turns waaaaaayyy better than the pnl.

It does not turn as good as the nl 160 however the 1150 turns better and pumps better than the 160. I didnt get a single GT as the RS line is soooo good. They are definetly a expert level foil and like the kujira. I think my 1150 will be my daily the 1k for head high days and the 1300 for shore running / downwind. These foils really are game changing even the kujira guys here are loving them. The new GTs might be more forgiving with a lower stall speed but that is about it as far as I can tell.
