I do expect the 300P to be very very similar to the KD 12"
Not sure and I don't want to implicate anyone, but to my eye the progressive tails are pretty close to a copy of the KD tails

Hey Califoilia, not wanting to steer the post away from the 1099 but can you please expand on how the standard and new Advanced fuses compare when used with the ARTís. Thanks

Holy Crap, the 1099 is so good.  I've been on the KDFoils 12" tail for the last two weeks in small glassy gutless surf.  This wing surfs so so so well when there is no power in the wave.  Of course, I'd rather be on a smaller foil, but when the waves are small this is the setup.  The setup is just a little more twitchy and less forgiving on the pump - but still pumps perfectly fine.  The surfing is just so much better and the downsides are barely a downgrade.

I alternated tails between KDFoils 12, 13.5 and 15 as well as Axis 350P tail (very similar to 13.5" KD).

The 15" with 1099 is a dog even though its a really great tail
The 13.5" and 350P ride fantastic and really make the foil super fun
The 12" is a game-changer

The 1099 continues to blow me away. I have been playing with a couple of things that dramatically improve the performance for winging. Crazy short/325P/82 old carbon(first time I have said that)
1. flying it just below the surface.
2. slow down
The combo of both of these brings this wing to life. The 1099 is a fast wing but the roll gets seriously locked in at speed so, turning is very limited. I have been taking it down to maybe 8-12 mph and all of a sudden I can rip radical turns full 180 degrees as if I am on a small surf wing. I feel like the wing is performing at its optimal speed.

Interesting!

When SUP foil surfing in California I found that the 1099 likes to go 12 to 14 mph.  The 999 runs 2 mph hotter happy at 16 and OK at 14 mph.

I have migrated to the East Coast surfing mostly in 'Central Rhode Island.' 

In California during the spring an average day would be 8 feet @ 10 seconds with chop.  When the wind picked up I was on the 1099 winging at mushroom rock and out to Mavericks.  As Haley Fiske says "There is no easy in at Mavericks."  We thought we would be winging all over the place but when it's big, aka 12 feet++ at 12 seconds++ you have to flirt the line with reef.  Consequences can be significant.  Not so much death but certainly loss of all gear.  When I have been out I always rig bigger wings and use the 1099 because I want to fly.  The 1099 has worked for me on a 6ft board with a 5.0 & 7.0 meter sail in open ocean swells of 15 feet or more.

Fast forward to June, East coast, waves were 2.8 feet @ 7 seconds.  SMALL and SLOW, 2 to 3.5 foot faces.  On the 1099 with 375P tail.  I switched from a 90 cm mast to 68 cm and immediately noticed the reduced stability.  This was in yaw (the board wouldn't paddle straight), roll (much more wobbly), and PITCH - THE RIG WOULD PUMP

The foil crew out here are mostly prone and younger aka << 45 years old.  The older guys ride SUP foil boards.  The lead prone dog is a guy named Ryan his tracks look like spaghetti.  I figured it was small, I was on a short mast, so why not pump around.  When I would turn off the wave with speed I would think in my head "Wow I am at 100% let go hunting."  My tracks are starting to get squiggly.  All 1099

How fast are your speeds on the 1099 Beashu?

Speaking of squiggly lines...
Even with the short fuse and 420 it's actually starting to turn pretty well.

I should probably revisit the 1099. I tried it once and used up two Costco parking lots turning the thing. I was also out of control most of the time, going too fast. I felt like a passenger. Slowing the thing down probably makes it a better wing. I'm addicted to the 999 though, so I'm not sure what I'd gain from the 1099.

If I had nothing else to do itíd be interesting to cut the 1099 and retape it so it has the 1095 gull wing shape.

Yeah Bill, I wasn't sure what I'd use the thing for the first hour but it's really growing on me. You are kind of a passenger and just have to let it do it's thing (which is GO!), and lower your turning expectations. I'm sure it comes around better with a smaller tail and shorter fuse but that's not what I got it for. Love the way it pumps with most of the mast out and short, quick inputs. It picks up energy everywhere :)

Axis 1099 continues to impress.  Here I was flying around in 2.6 foot surf @ 7 seconds.

What is new is that I am able to power myself with paddle power.  Someone said "why don't you just pump?"   Because I am a better paddler than pumper.  What is cool is that I am able to pump-paddle front side comfortably while arcing a turn.

Note - This was a Sunday in the middle of July in the middle of New England.  The forecast was for 0.5 feet - 1 foot.  Bad forecasts lead to light crowds and beautiful flying in the most densely populated corridor of the United States. 

Thank you to Ryan for lending me his Red cap that had the solo shot tracker.

the old "pump-pump-paddle" 2 to 1 strategy is working really well for me.  If I have to dig out of a hole I'm paddling 1 to 1 like you are, but as soon as I get a little speed and enough height on the mast, going to 2:1 is really smooth and efficient.  I can go a long time like this.

Beasho--mavericks to 2.3 ft mushburgers. That's versatility.

  On the 1099 with 375P tail.  I switched from a 90 cm mast to 68 cm and immediately noticed the reduced stability.  This was in yaw (the board wouldn't paddle straight), roll (much more wobbly), and PITCH - THE RIG WOULD PUMP
So aside from the attributes of the 1099, would it be reasonable to conclude that a longer mast reduces yaw?  And reduces roll?  But the shorter mast pumps better with reduced pitch stability?  I've been using a 22.5" mast (or 57 cms) and have been yawing like crazy.  Thought it was just me.  Or is it?

What length paddle do you use for that?
I have a minus 12cm (5") paddle and it is too short to paddle when I am flying.
