Cloud IX new FS foils
« on: September 22, 2022, 07:55:16 AM »
Any experiences on these yet, particularly the FS1000/850. I like the look of them but need info on comparable foils, speed etc.

Cheers mike

Yeah they have been really well received down-under huge improvement on the old series . You'd put the 850 in with the Cabrinha H800 & Lift 120 absolute killer prone foil with an amazing top end , good pump and good lower stall speed. 15knots + it's also great on the wing .  The 1050 has more Lift than the Cabrinha H1000 and not quiet the same speed but very close , great pump. I was my 6M Slick SLS with my cab H1000 my mate was on a Cloud 6m with the FS 1050 it was 10 to 12 knots on the reach we were both identical speed , maybe I could point a touch higher but that's it.  So overall the new Clouds are really good , plenty of prone shredders here ripping on them here especially the 850 plus the 550 tow is incredible. New mast and 2 piece fuse system is really nice as well and the new tails are great I actually run one on my Cabrinha.

Cheers Piros,

You able to compare against any Axis foils? I ride BSC890/810/740 and Hps880 currently.

Speed and glide?

Thanks
Mike

The BSC 890 doesn't come into this category at all , it's a slow pumpy surf wing for sitting in the pocket of the wave and not accelerating out. The 810 HPS great fast nimble surf wing but a tough one to pump laps unless you are a light weight , great wing on windy days on the ding. The 740 is more a larger tow wing , need to have a good skill set to prone that. The 880 HPS is more a match for the 850 Cloud ticks all the same boxes accept the tight flowing turns of the 850 but it's still a great wing and was my favorite all round wing for everything when I was still riding Axis (now on Cabrihna H series 800 & 1000 )

There some serious good prone riders where I live all riding the Cloud 850 ,this is a must try foil . The flow and pump of this thing is seriously impressive.
