Dwight forgot one of the newer boomed wings (looks interesting)...
Good catch, although technically not a 'new' wing with boom handles. The Eleveight V1 had them too...
I'm 5'10", 66kg riding:
Swift Foil Boards custom 4'10 x 19.5" 35L
Gong Lethal 4'6 65L
Axis ART 799, 899, 999,1099, US fuse, 85cm mast
Gong Fluid L-S, XXL-S on 85cm and 65cm mast
Duotone Slick 3m, 4m, 5m

First review of the Nitro that I've seen. Short and shame about the sound quality but don't think there's anything too surprising mentioned. It's light, stiff and drifts well. Reading between the lines might be a handful overpowered so maybe you need to alter pressure according to conditions? Would like to hear more!

Here's a video with some long sections of a foiler using what looks like a Takuma Wing/RS prototype (those handles I think are unique to the RS):

Definitely a BRM. The RS has X-Ply panels on the trailing edge of the canopy.
in progress...

Here's the Takuma RS in action at Real Water Sports (he's using it while testing the new Naish foils -- it will be interesting to hear his review of this wind wing (note the batten along the lower edge of the front strut) -- this wing sure looks nice):

More on the Nitro. Not exactly overflowing with praise, but no significant criticisms either...

I have just ordered another pair of Takoons,1000 eur total.
Good ole Dacron and Ripstop,soft handles,no window.

After reading/watching every review i could find on Aluula,Hookipa,Xply,RS and  whatnot i still think  the price is too high for the improvements they give.

I was convinced they would be total gamechangers, IMHO they are not there yet.

Ive got Takoon and OR Aluula.  The OR is a sick wing and without a doubt, it is better than the Takoon.  But the Takoon is also a great wing and particularly in smaller sizes, the difference in performance between them is pretty small.  Cost benefit is totally personal, but I agree that the price difference probably isn't justified for most people.  Its nice not to be precious about gear and for the cost of the Takoon, I don't really need to worry about inevitably beating it up.  You can also buy an extra size given the price difference to most dacron wings (multiple sizes given the difference to an Aluula wing).  I am lucky to have the resources to buy nice stuff, but if I were to build another quiver, I would seriously consider Takoon v2 for 3,4,5m (something lighter for a 7m).

The new KT wings are an amazing V1 effort. It's clear they've looked at many of the previous wings on the market and have added many of the desirable attributes such as low end power, stiff frame, drift stability, light weight and good handle interface. The handles are simple and light weight but it may be cool to to see Cabrinha style rigid/soft handles in the future for these wings. Like an Armstrong, I think you can size down a half size as they are pretty grunty. Even the 3m has pretty amazing low end. High end is surprisingly good too. Windsurfers familiar with the Goya brand of sails are used to a high end/premium/refined product from Jason Diffin. It'll be interesting to see where his KT wing development goes!
6'5" 200 pounds. Armstrong HA1125, HA925, HA725, HS1850, HS1250 Foils. Armstrong 5'11" FG, Quatro WingDrifter 72L, KT 3m, 4m, 5m Armstrong V2 A-Wing 2.5

First proper review of the RS, compared to the new Unit.

Even more excited to get my RSs now. Sounds like they will suit me very well...
