Review-OMEN Operator 1050 and 60L board
« on: June 12, 2023, 02:16:20 PM »

I threw this review up on Seabreeze, but figured I'd throw it up here as well.
   
Omen Foils-Operator 1050 and 60l board
Created by martyman Yesterday, 12
Just had my mind blown by the pre-production Omen 1050 and 60l board combo!
First off, I'm 225pd w/a wetsuit and the thought of being on a 60L sinker in the PNW(cold) had me...leary. Man was I ever shocked at how fast that board popped up. It reminded me of the videos of a submarine popping out of the water from submersion at speed. The other thing that had me super stoked was how this board bounces off the water. Everyone says there boards bounce off the water blabla-this board bounced better than anything I've been one...by a long shot.
The Foil, The Operator 1050
I hopped on it and had the best wingfoil session I've had to date. The foil was so Incredibly balanced, efficient and fast man... I'm going to throw my Cab1000 and nolimitz in the garbage(kidding). For real though, the foil allowed me to rip around and do exactly what I wanted to do. No Ventilation, no stalling, no upper speed limit, no problems. It was so efficient that the Glide allowed me to pull around a 360 which I've never done before. It just kept going and going and...
The mast was a pre-production mast that is 80% what the production one will be apparently. It was stiff stiffer and lighter than the Current No limitz mast(which by the way makes the Omen Masts)
The production units will be as stiff or stiffer than the Army or Axis HM masts but really light. That is no small thing.
Greg and Peter are in tough with some seriously refined foils on the market, but I have no.doubt they will be considered top 3 and contending for #1 on the market after what I experienced 9out there.

 I pucked up a 72L and I gotta say, it's changed my entire outlook on what I look for in a board. Amazing.

I have the 48L on order. Can't wait to put it through it's paces!!
