Why did they keep all the names the same? That's three generations of wings all with the same name.

True not a marketing expert but I see they promote the electric mostly and the surf although I believe is a fine product is left behind at least here in Europe!!

They say the sizes are listed on the Fuse and you can see it on the website. But I can't find it on the website. So I'm sitting at my computer loading the one side pic of the fuse and yelling ENHANCE ENHANCE! Apparently that's just something that works in movies though and I can't read the dimensions. *sigh*

I think they should have offered a 170 ou 180 as well.

Looks like the HA 120 is really good.

That makes it sound like the 200 surf v2 is a compromise in every way.

Well one mast is $600 and the other mast the photo is upside down and it's $800ish. So maybe it costs more to ship upside down?

Don't remember where I saw it now- but my impression is that they have changed layup on 2021 wings for more durability and on masts for less flex.

Nice! Let me know what the numbers are on that one. Those are just photos I had @jackfromtown send me. Why aren't they listed anywhere is my question. What good is putting the numbers on the wing, but not online. *sigh*

The HA 120 is looking very promising, 88cm wing span/775cm2, some guy use it in DW and it seems it surf pretty good as well.
Anyone has tried it ?

Frenchfoiler I have the 120 on back order it was not in stock,it is going to be in a month....as soon as I get it I will post how it goes ,I am on the 170 with 25 tail for the moment an I love it ,I believe the 120 will be insane for my 68 kg the 170 feels big over 20 kts for winging for my weight but controllable ,also sup surfed it 2 sessions in 3-5feet swell and it is perfect very good turns and amazing glide and pump

A friend in Hawaii is using it a bunch. He says the ha170 still has a place in his quiver, but he likes the ha120 a lot. As you imagine the downside is the low end stall speed. You have to be going faster. It's very very fast though.

Is lift ever going to offer a tail pedestal with a 30mm M6 threads so I can put my own tail on and adjust the tail pitch? I can't believe they are locking everyone into only using their tails with absolutely no adjustment. Lame.

Ok my perspective on this subject is that trimming the stab maybe gives some advantages but ads drag and makes the foil nervous .Except Lift that I recently added to my quiver I also have mfc hydros 1250,1400and 1600 ,I tried shimming the stab there but hated ,I am always on the zero shim I prefer the foil balanced and neutral, for me a foil that needs trimming is wrong in angles but that's me also the design is the most efficient no bolts,gaps etc that produce turbulence at the stab that is the worst thing you can do to destroy glide the only downside that I agree is we don't have some alternatives in shape, size and airfoil to play with....

Interesting perspective, most of us trim/shim the tail to reduce lift/drag...I agree with the rest of your comments on Lift foils.
