I'll just keep making good boards for people to use with the wings as i don't really need to get into the inflatable toy industry

Duotone have the Patent on the boom. My crystal ball is we are going to see different wings for lawn mowing / surf and Downwind specific wings.

Their windows look more useful than duotone which are too far back. But Windows = heavy

If you felt like you wanted a boom to hold on a naish or similar you could probably just lash a carbon paddle onto the handles and use that or does someone have a patent on string and knots?

I carried my mate's Doutone after handling my Ozone yesterday. Fairly noticeable weight difference there.

I believe that's being disputed - some of the guys here were riding prototypes in 2011 which had booms (and filed patent)....
I think you will see more wings with booms in the future.

I have not tried it, but it seems to me that you would still have the issue of a loose connection between the "boom" and the strut, and the same "indirect" feeling than handles.

PeterP I heard some rumblings about that as well , will be interesting to see what comes of it . Pretty well proven now this is not a fad , it's like the introduction of kite surfing all over again . Here is a really good article on it .

Can't say the weight is noticeable on the Duotone unless there is no wind. Wind does the job of carrying it.

There does seem to be a 1000 and 1 options out there, china seems to be very happy to sell direct too these days.

No loose connections on the duotone colas. Can't imagine the connections would get as loose as the handles would over a season.

No, I was speaking of tomooh idea of "lash[ing] a carbon paddle onto the handles"
